About the first sunrise
They say many years ago, our ancestors got out of the sea when the world was still dark.
The only light was the one coming from the moon and the stars.
The gods formed the first jicarero group and began their search for the deer and the Sunrise Hill.
After a long journey to the hill, the deer gave itself voluntarily to the hunters and its heart became peyote. Then the moon gave away her son, a blind and crippled boy, yet a great hunter who jumped into a bonfire and, after going through the underworld, came back as the Sun. He is our father Tayau.
That's how the first hunt and our first sunrise came to be.
That's how the Wixárikas tells it.
