LA LEYENDA DEL ORIGEN DEL LAGO DE ATITLN

Cuentan que esto sucedi hace mucho tiempo, cuando


los Cakchiqueles dieron muerte a saetazos a Tolgom.
Este suceso permiti que la punta del cerro del
lanzamiento de Tolgom se volviera muy famosa. Los
Cakchiqueles arrojaron a la laguna los pedazos de
Tolgom y se marcharon ms all de Qakbatzul. Luego
de esto, se sumergieron dentro de la laguna.Cada uno
pas ordenadamente y sentan mucho miedo pues la
superficie del agua se agitaba fuertemente. De all se
dirigieron a Panpat y Payn Chocol, practicando sus
dones de hechicera. Estando en Chitululse toparon con nueve zapotes.

Posteriormente los guerreros, entre ellos Gagavitz y su hermana llamada Chetehauh.


Decidieron parar y construir sus casas en la punta llamada actualmente QabouilAbah. Sin
razn alguna, un da Gagavitz decidi arrojarse al agua convirtindose en la serpiente
emplumada. Al instante se obscureci el agua, se levant un viento y se form un
remolino que acab de agitar la superficie del lago. En la orilla del agua estaban las siete
tribus, quienes al ver lo ocurrido dijeron a los descendientes de los Atziquinahay:Acaba
de agitarse la superficie de nuestra laguna, nuestro mar oh hermano nuestro! Que sea
para ti la mitad del lago y para ti una parte de sus frutos, los patos, cangrejos, pescados.

Consultaron entre ellos y brindaron la siguiente respuesta:Est bien, hermano. La mitad


de la laguna es tuya, tuya ser la mitad de los frutos, los patos, cangrejos y pescados, la
mitad de las espadaas y las caas verdes. Y as tambin juntar la gente todo lo que
mate entre las espadaas. De esta manera fue hecha la divisin del origen del Lago de
Atitln.

2. LA LEYENDA DE LA LLORONA

En su versin guatemalteca, la Llorona es el alma en


pena de una mujer de origen criollo (descendiente de
espaoles) o mestiza, pero en ambos casos de un
estrato socioeconmico alto. Cuenta la leyenda que la
mujer se llamaba Mara y que, mientras su esposo
andaba de viaje, tuvo un amoro con un mozo de su
hacienda. Pero Mara result embarazada a causa de
esta relacin. Angustiada, termin ahogando a su hijo
(en otras versiones son dos o tres) en un ro una vez que naci. Se dice que el nio se
llamaba Juan de la Cruz. Por este crimen la mujer fue condenada a repetir hasta el fin de
los tiempos su grito Ay, mi hijo!, que en ocasiones se transforma en Ay! Dnde est
mi hijo! Juan de la Cruz!.

Segn la tradicin, la Llorona pasea por las calles solitarias y frecuenta los lugares donde
hay agua, como piletas, ros, fuentes o tanques. Sus lastimeros gritos asustan al ms
valiente y paralizan al pavoroso. Muchos dicen haberla visto y escuchado. Se cuenta que,
cuando se la escucha cerca, en realidad est muy lejos, y viceversa. Se dice que no
puede ganarse a una persona (es decir, quitarle la vida) si esta usa la ropa interior al
revs. Se les presenta a los hombres mujeriegos como una mujer para engaarlos. Se
dice que quien le habla pierde la vida y que un hombre acechado por la Llorona se salva
nicamente si una mujer le toma la mano, pues el espectro ataca nicamente a hombres
solitarios. Tambin se cuenta que, si uno escucha el grito, debe tratar de moverse y no
quedarse congelado por el pavor. La persona tiene que huir antes de escuchar el tercer
grito o la Llorona se la ganar. Para evitar encontrarse con ella o ahuyentarla, la persona
har bien en rezar al santo de su devocin o repetir las oraciones tradicionales catlicas.

Unos imaginan a la Llorona como una mujer vestida de luto riguroso, mientras que otros la
ven ataviada de blanco. Tambin se dice que el pelo suele taparle la cara y que esta es
como la de un caballo (rasgo que comparte con la Siguanaba). Otro aspecto propio del
espectro, segn otras leyendas guatemaltecas, es que su grito viene acompaado de un
viento fro que hiela la sangre. Tambin se cuenta que si alguien ve a la Llorona a los ojos
pierde la vida.

1. THE LEGEND OF THE ORIGIN OF LAKE ATITLN

They say that this happened a long time ago, when the
Cakchiquels killed Tolgom. This event allowed the tip of
the hill of Tolgom's launch to become very famous. The
Cakchiquels threw the pieces of Tolgom into the lagoon
and marched past Qakbatzulu. After this, they plunged
into the lagoon. Each one passed neatly and they were
very afraid because the surface of the water was
shaken strongly. From there they turned to Panpat and
Payn Chocol, practicing their witchcraft gifts. While in
Chitululse they came up with nine saplings.

Later the warriors, among them Gagavitz and his sister called Chetehauh. They
decided to stop and build their houses at the point currently called QabouilAbah.
Without any reason, one day Gagavitz decided to throw himself into the water,
becoming the feathered serpent. Immediately the water darkened, a wind rose and a
whirlwind formed, and the surface of the lake was shaken. On the water's edge were
the seven tribes, who, upon seeing what happened, said to the descendants of the
Atziquinahay: "The surface of our lagoon, our sea, our brother, has just been shaken!
Let the half of the lake be for you and a part of your fruit, the ducks, crabs, fish. "

They consulted with each other and offered the following response: "All right, brother.
The half of the lagoon is yours, half of the fruit, the ducks, crabs and fish, half the
bulrushes and the green reeds. And so shall the people gather together all that they kill
among the bulrushes. "In this way the division of the origin of Lake Atitln was made.

2. THE LEGEND OF THE LLORONA

In its Guatemalan version, La Llorona is the soul in


penalty of a woman of Creole origin (descendant of
Spaniards) or mestizo, but in both cases of a high
socioeconomic stratum. Legend has it that the woman
was named Maria and that while her husband was
traveling, he had an affair with a boy from his estate.
But Mary became pregnant because of this relationship. Distraught, she ended up
drowning her son (in other versions are two or three) in a river once she was born. It is
said that the child was called Juan de la Cruz. For this crime the woman was
condemned to repeat until the end of time her cr y "Oh, my son!", Which sometimes
becomes "Oh! Where is my son! Juan de la Cruz!".

According to tradition, Llorona walks the lonely streets and frequents places where
there is water, such as pools, rivers, fountains or tanks. His pitiful cries frighten the
bravest and paralyze the dreadful. Many claim to have seen and heard it. It is said that,
when heard close, it is really far away, and vice versa. It is said that you can not win a
person (ie take his life) if he is wearing the underwear in reverse. Menizer women are
introduced as a woman to deceive them. It is said that whoever speaks to him loses his
life and that a man stalked by the Llorona is saved only if a woman takes his hand,
because the spectrum attacks only lonely men. It is also said that if one hears the cry,
one must try to move and not be frozen by dread. The person has to flee before
hearing the third cry or the Llorona will win it. To avoid encountering her or driving her
away, the person will do well to pray to the saint of his devotion or to repeat traditional
Catholic prayers.

Some imagine the Llorona as a woman dressed in rigorous mourning, while others see
her dressed in white. It is also said that the hair usually covers the face and that this is
like that of a horse (a feature that shares with the Siguanaba). Another aspect of the
spectrum, according to other Guatemalan legends, is that their cry is accompanied by
a cold wind that freezes the blood. Also it is said that if someone sees the Llorona in
the eyes loses the life.

THE LEGEND OF TATUANA

girl was accused of witchcraft and of hating to get
the men. He was accused of greed and of not
following the precepts of the church. For all these
reasons she was tried by the tribunal of the Holy
Inquisition, and was sentenced to death. The
Tatuana refused to receive the grace of
confession of its sins before dying. They say that the night before his death, he asked
as a last grace a piece of coal, some candles and white roses. With these three things
he made in the cell a kind of altar where he performed a sorcery. With charcoal she
painted a great boat on the wall while reciting spells, and it is said that the same
demon appeared before her. The demon took him out of the cell mount

his people, his father said that he could not tell anyone about the grief that had happened.

much so that her face became ugly with so much sadness, no one else ever tried it so
ugly. However, one day a cacique from the other party came to the tribe and came with his
son, who fell in love at first sight with the silent, tender and intelligent princess. All her
friends told her that she was too ugly to marry her, but he replied that her love was similar.

THE LEGEND OF THE SOMBRERN


One of the most well-known legends about this
personage of the Guatemalan culture and also is
well-known in Aguadas, Caldas says as follows:
One night El Sombrern walked in a neighborhood
of La Antigua Guatemala when he saw a very
beautiful girl with long hair and He fell in love with
her. She searched for her house and took her
serenade night and time, but she did not tell her
parents about it. One day he began to stop eating
until he almost died, and it was then that the mother realized that it was for El Sombrern.

He took his daughter to a convent believing that there was going to be better, but the girl
still did not eat and one day she woke up with a braid in her hair made by the spectrum
and that day died. Then at the wake, El Sombrern appeared crying and his tears were
like crystals. He never forgets the girls he has loved. It is also said that it makes braids to
horses and mules ... It is also said that this terror besides part of falling in love with young
girls, likes to ride mules and horses from the stables of the farms in the nights exhausting
them. For this reason, the beasts during the day do not fulfill the tasks added to that they
become hostile with the people, the farmers and finqueros to see this behavior look for if
the Sombrern has not made them braids in the bellows. If so, the animal is no longer
useful for tasks ...

One way to know if the Sombrern is making his own in farms and houses, is to place
either a chair and table of freshly prepared pine near a house balcony or near the stables,
along with aguardiente and a guitar in the night Moon and must keep all people silent, only
this way you will hear the guitar and songs of Sombrern. Al Sombrern attracts girls with
long hair and big eyes, so when it is suspected that she is behind a young woman must
cut her hair to this so that the Sombrern does not gain the soul of the young woman.
