About the origin of the Rarámuri and the Chabochi 
They say many years ago, in the beginning, the Sun and the Moon were two kids living on their own in a small shack with no lights. And that's why they created the Tarahumaras.
The Sun created the men from corn. First, he made the shape of a man and blew out on it three times to give it life. Then, he created the woman blowing on her four times because she'd need more strength to give birth.
At the same time the Lord of Darkness, angry and jealous of the Rarámuri's birth, created a figure out of ashes. With only one blow, it turned into the white man or Chabochi.
That's how the Rarámuri and the Chabochi were born.
That's how the Rarámuris tell it.
