Once upon the time, the Earth was created by two makers: The Plumed Serpent of the seas, and the Heart of the Sky.
When the two makers separated the earth from the seas and the sky, life would arise, planned by the makers as deer, birds and their nests, jaguars, rattlesnakes, and guardians of the bushes.
But unfortunately, their creations would not talk to their creators, resulting in them becoming prey to others. So the sea and the sky tried to create a creature that would respect them.
After a failed attempt at making a body out of mud, the Heart Of Sky created wooden humans advised by the Diviners. But they lacked memories in their hearts and minds, leading to the sky destroying them.
After the carvings had been wiped out by floods and animals, the Grandmother Xmucane decides to create humans out of maize.
Born from the corn dough, the first four true humans Jaguar Quitte, Night, Mahucatah and True Jaguar become the forefathers of the Quiche Mayans.
