Earth Mother’ Native American deity.


Mother earthFirst Mother or Corn Mother is the Native American Goddess of nourishment, and many Native Americans honor Her; She is the personification of maize and the fertility of the Earth. She is a Triple Goddess in that She grows from young to old, eventually sacrificing Herself so that Her body may nourish and seed the Earth with corn so that Her people may live and eat.

Earth Mother

The Corn Mother’
In the house with the tortoise chair
She will give birth to the pearl
to the beautiful feather….
There she sits on the tortoise
Swelling to give us birth
On your way, on your way
Child be on your way to me here,
You whom I made new….

–Aztec poem to the Corn Mother–

This illustration of the Earth Mother was created for a Book by Steven Warnstaff
