The corn children left the sacred fields when they saw the sign of the gods: a great earthquake that shook the earth and collapsed the invaders‘ cities. The one who walks behind the line, the lord of the corn, had fulfilled his promise and had destroyed the enemies of his people. The children of the corn marched towards the center of the world, where ancient Tenochtitlan, the city of the gods, was located. There, they found a desolate landscape: the pyramids, the palaces, the canals, everything was in ruins. The invaders had desecrated and looted the city, and had killed or enslaved the few remaining Aztecs. The children of the corn felt a mixture of sadness and anger when they saw the state of their city. But they also felt a mixture of pride and hope as they remembered the history of their people. They were the heirs of a great civilization, which had resisted and fought against the invaders. They were the children of Ometeotl, and corn was the sustenance of his life. The children of the corn set out to rebuild the world, and restore order and harmony. With corn as their guide, they began to plant and harvest, to create and share, to sing and dance, to pray and give thanks. With corn as their ally, they began to form families and communities, establish laws and customs, develop science and art, and honor their gods and ancestors. The children of the corn were in charge of repopulating the earth, and starting a new era. The sixth sun had been born, and a new world had begun.
