Stories That Made Us

27-07-2021 • 32 min

This week, we speak of the Hero Brothers - Hunahpu and Xabalanque of the Quiche Mayans. The tale is narrated in the Popul Voh, or the Book of Council, the very same from where we recounted the Mayan tale of Creation of the World. Check out that story in Episodes 29 & 30 of the first season.
