Description In the very early days, when everyone was small, poor, and hungry, a local mother sent her son across the sky, to the distant country of the Shin-au-av, in search of subsidence. After passing Shin-au-av's enemy test (in which he drinks cactus wine), the boy is sent home with a corn seeds. This is how corn was brought from the skies.
