Contrasting Corn's Sacred Uses and Industrial Production at Terra Madre
Karina Ocampo is a Buenos Aires-based journalist and the author of La Ruta Del Maíz, a book documenting her journey, and the journey of corn, through Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Mexico. She joins Dylan Heuer to unpack the juxtaposition at the center of her recent work: in the Americas corn is the cornerstone of the industrial food system and a sacred, traditional ingredient to many Indigenous people. She talks about how these two worlds collide, shares stories from her year of traveling, and discusses the intersection of food and feminism.
