Corn’s Journey

I designed these maps for a chapter on Native American culture for National Geographic School Publishing. The map of corn migration shows the gradual historical spread of corn from where it was first domesticated from wild relatives into North and South America, becoming a staple of these cultures.

The other map shows the regions occupied by various native cultures when the Spaniards first appeared in the Americas. I always enjoy learning little bits and pieces of knowledge from working on these kinds of projects.
