He also saw the humiliation and the spoils of the Conquest.For this reason, perhaps wanting to perpetuate the memory of the ancestors, hewent with all the treasures to the bowels of the rivers.There he remains, taciturn and remote among the stones, farfrom time, while his hair and nails grow and his eyes collapse the night.
Along with the monologues, the night walks on the waves ofthe waters, the Mohán continues to practice music. That's why he plays theguitar on full moon nights.Some peasants have seen him, terrified, descend on a raft,while rehearsing an unknown song in the quena.

Sorcerer of the water, the Mohán, however; exerts a fierceforce on rivers. Regulates floodwaters and complicates fishermen's cast nets.On some occasions his zeal becomes perverse: he overturns the canoes andimmerses the victims in the bottom of the waters.

They know that their fate depends on the Mohan.
