“To begin each firing, ground corn and cedar branches are offered to the fire to say thank you and call the spirits to the work. Corn specifically is an offering of gratitude. My people of Taos Pueblo view corn as essential to life. By offering corn, I am offering life, and my energies in having grown that corn”
