Man and nature: a mutual aid story

According to the Chontal people, an indigenous people of Mexico, ants are said to have helped man find corn so that he may eat. Corn is of great importance across the Americas, as it has been the staple food for 10,000 years. For example, we use corn husks to make tamales and hold the stuffing, it is also used i the confection of objects such as dolls, flowers or fruits.
