Elephant Amaranth …..
Highly nutritious Amaranth is an ancient grain traced all the way back to the Mayan’s who depended heavily on it health and sustenance . They also believed Amaranth was a powerful tool for connecting to the world of Spirit and used it as such in rituals in ceremonies and rituals . The invading Spanish attempted to destroy all traces of Amaranth by condemning to death anyone caught cultivating or processing it. However due to its resilience tenacity maybe even a helping hand from the other side it would not be eradicated and is now enjoying a resurgence and recognition for all it offers to the circle of Life.
