Corn Moon blesses us with a bounty of food, and teaches us to be mindful of the never-ending cycle of life. ItÕs the ninth teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishnaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother EarthÕs children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom.

In September, the corn is ready to be harvested, and as we remove the husks, we uncover 13 rows of multi-coloured kernels representing all the spirits that are waiting to begin their walk on Earth. Corn Moon reminds us that every decision must be made with future generations in mind, and preserve this world for all our relations that are yet to come.

Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom, and this captivating coin series with 13 original woodland designs, brings you her life teachings. The Anishinaabe people view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. And although variations do exist due to geography and climate, Grandmother Moon is a central figure, her kind and gentle ways always a common thread.

For the Anishnaabe people, Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth's children and lights up their paths. Every moon brings a new teaching that is illustrated in each coin design to foster understanding and respect for all of Earth's creatures - a stunning work of art with a unique insight into the Anishinaabe way of life.

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a tree that is beginning to transform into the vibrant colours of autumn. A corn stalk stands to the left, its leaves, tassels and corn seemingly reaching for the sky. Dashes of vivid green reflect the inner world of the leaves as they capture sunlight and perform the hidden process of photosynthesis. The ear of corn and its silks are portrayed in the fiery colours of autumn, the husk removed to reveal rows of plump kernels and golden silky threads.

9th issue in this captivating series of original woodland designs illustrating the 13 teachings from Grandmother Moon according to Anishinaabe tradition.
