Language of Indigenous Descriptionixl
DescriptionIn this work the sowing of corn is discussed, and where people sow. One of the participants says that he sows in hot places, another of our participants said that he only sows in cold places. The other thing that our participants mention is that in the cold places, almost nothing is harvested. There is a difference between the places. In the hot ones, ayote and bananas are harvested, and cornfields are harvested twice [a year], they emphasize in this conversation.
