The Corn Maiden is the Grandmother of the Sun and The Grandmother of the Light. In the Pueblo Indian culture, corn is the symbol of life; the Corn Maiden brought the gift of corn. The Corn Maiden represents strength, creation, and wisdom.

Olla Maidens represent the real Zuni women of the past that went back and forth from the spring to the home carrying large jars of water on their heads. The Olla Maiden represents strength and nourishment.
