    Muchísimas gracias por está historia! Me encanta todo lo que tiene que ver con las culturas indígenas, and I love this story in particular because it is not only pertaining to Native American culture, but also at the same time it has to do with my country Colombia. Thank you so much for this. Please document as much of as many of the languages and as many of the stories as you can. And please continue to spread knowledge of the cultures so that maybe we can prevent the loss of the human culture.
