The Mayan Indians did gruesome things at their ceremonies.
There are so many scary stories about the Mayans. Did you know that they practiced human blood sacrifices? The Mayans also would cut the tongue, pierce their ears, and for a living sacrifice, rip out the heart.
The Mayan people's agriculture, housing, clothing, and ceremonies set them apart from others. They had different ways of living, such as studying the stars and trying to figure out the meaning of things instead of waging war agenst every tribe they met. This makes them special.
