About the origin of the butterflies and sequins
They say many years ago L’itoy, the Oldest Brother, along with the coyote grabbed some clay and started to mold the man and all the animals.
First, he created the butterflies giving them wings and liberating them from the caterpillar shape they had been trapped into by an evil creature.
Then, he kept on molding and decorating every other animal.
When it was time to work on the man, he realized there weren't any colors left except the simplest one of all.
So L’itoy started to put together small balls of clay with a tread and used them to decorate the man.
That’s how the sequins we use for our clothes and the butterflies that brighten up our journey were created.
