About the origin of the Sun and the corn
They say many years ago Zithú, the mean one, owned the Earth. And during that time, there was also a boy chased by the bad guys.
One day while the boy was looking for a place to hide, he was shot with an arrow. The bad guys asked a rooster to keep an eye on him and to let them know if he was trying to scape.
But the rooster didn't sing until the fourth day, when the boy was so far away he was climbing a tree through the sky. From the tree, drops stared to fall fertilizing the world and seeding corn.
By the time the bad guys came back, the boy had turned into the Sun.
That's how the world we know now came to be.
That's how the Otomis tell it.
