Green Snail Shell Maiden by Chad Quandelacy (Zuni)
Chad Quandelacy is the son of Priscilla Lasiloo and Stewart Quandelacy.
"The Corn Maidens are said to have secretly emerged with the Zunis from their previous existence in the underworld. After a while, the Corn maidens and the Zunis became separated, and witches destroyed the Zunis' crops. The twin sons of the Sun Father set out to find the maidens. After a long search they were found, and the Twins asked them to bring corn back to the Zuni people. So the Corn Maidens returned to save the Zuni from starvation."
