A Gift of Corn to the Choctaw

Special | 1m 17s

Across the eastern United States and Canada there are over 10,000 sacred mounds. Choctaw traditions link their mounds with their ancestors, corn, and the sky. One story tells of two hunters who feed a poor woman. She turns out to have magical powers and rewards the hunters and their people with corn.
