Maya people liked to tell a story about how people first got corn (maize) to eat. There were a lot of different versions of this story, but they mostly had the idea that at one time all the corn was hidden inside a mountain, and then the gods sent a bolt of lightning down to split open Maize Mountain so people could get in and find the secret of growing corn. (Compare this story to the Greek story of Demeter giving the people wheat).
