The corn children grew up in the sacred fields, under the protection of the gods. They learned the secrets of corn, the plant that gave them the sustenance of life. They also learned the history of their people, the culture that the invaders had tried to erase. And they learned the prophecy, the destiny that the gods had reserved for them. The children of the corn knew that one day they would have to leave their shelter and face the outside world. They knew that the invaders still dominated the lands that once belonged to the Aztecs, and that they had imposed their religion and language. They knew that the invaders had built great cities of stone and metal, and that they had exploited the resources of nature. They knew that the invaders had forgotten the gods, and that they had defied the laws of balance and harmony. The corn children also knew that the gods had not forgotten the invaders, and that they had a punishment prepared for them. They knew that the gods had announced the end of the fifth sun, the current sun, and the beginning of the sixth sun, the new sun. They knew that the gods had sent signs that the end was near, such as earthquakes, eruptions, hurricanes and eclipses. They knew that the gods had predicted that the end would come with a great earthquake, which would destroy the invaders‘ cities and cause chaos and death. The children of the corn waited patiently and with faith for the moment of the final test. They waited for the gods to give them the sign that they should leave the sacred fields and march towards the center of the world, where ancient Tenochtitlan, the city of the gods, was located. They hoped that the gods would give them the strength and courage to face the invaders, and to claim their inheritance. They hoped that the gods would give them the wisdom and goodness to rebuild the world, and to restore order and harmony. The children of the corn were the children of Ometéotl, and the corn was their sustenance of life.
