Mother Seeds in Resistance
from the Lands of Chiapas
Offering Sanctuary to a Mayan Birthright

Natural Corn

GMO-free corn seed is made available to people-of-conscience by the autonomous, indigenous Zapatista communities of Chiapas, Mexico in cooperation with Schools for Chiapas in order to promote friendship, solidarity, and understanding with the Mayan peoples of Chiapas as well as to provide sanctuary to the natural corns of Chiapas. "Mother Seeds in Resistance from the Lands of Chiapas" understands that most growers will grow this corn for personal consumption, but hopes that some growers will maintain pure lines of seed true to their origin and free of all forms of genetic contamination for future return to the indigenous communities of Chiapas.
