Sara Warmi we say in Quechua to this spirit of the corn. She germinates into wiñapo (corn sprouts) and ferments into the sacred corn beer, aja that brings so much joy.

Ixi’im Xch’uup came from the north, from the hot Mayan lands, where people were made of corn to the south, where she fell in love with our mountains and stayed forever.

Corn is the oldest grain that has fed us for thousands of years. It is linked to the entire cultural process of the indigenous peoples of ABYA YALA, our continent, as an integrating food.
