MeM#9 —21) Wuuac

MeM#9 —21) Wuuacde Alfredo Madrigal from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.

In ancient Baja California Sur, the Pericues believed that Niparaya lived in heaven, creator of heaven and earth, who in a great battle expelled Wuuac, took all his pitayas from him, and locked him in a cave guarded by whales. Only the Guamas (sorcerers) know how to summon him to the surface and win his favor.
