"The Plucking of Eyebrows"

Today is one of my favorite stories in the Popol Vuh. It's sort of a abduction story with a twist you might say. As the tribes put forth there best effort. In order to stop the disappearance of certain tribal members. But first here in Arizona, a Democratic Senator had been shot in the head. Her name is Gabriella Giffords of the Tucson district of Arizona. Her supposed shooter was a young man in his mid twenties. His name is Jared Lee Loughner, of Tucson. Who is in captivity in Tucson. Also this week, many odd stories have broke. About the numerous bird deaths from around the World. Even in Tucson, over 100 bats have died mysteriously. You hear stories that HAARP, the Chem-Trails, some new government weapon is the cause. One thing for sure about the deaths. The truth will never be found out. As long as the controlled media is given the facts.

And Here Is The Joining Together Of All The Tribes, all decked out now with weapons and shields. There metal ornaments were countless, they looked beautiful, all the Lords, the men. In truth, they were just making talk (bragging), all of them. In truth, they would become our captives.

'Since there is a Tohil, and since he is a "God", lets celebrate his day, or let's make him our prize!' they said among themselves. But Tohil already knew about it, and Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night and Not Right Now also knew about it. They had hears about it while it was being plotted, since they were neither asleep nor at rest.

So then all the lance-bearing warriors of the tribes armed.
After that, all the warriors got up during the night, in order to enter our very midst. They set off, but they never arrived. They just fell asleep on the way, all those warriors.

And then they were defeated again by Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night and Not Right Now, since every last one of them fell asleep in the road. Now they couldn't feel a thing. A multitude slept, all of them, and that's when things got started. There eyebrows were plucked out, along with there beards.

And then the metal was undone from there cloaks, along with there headdresses.

And there necklaces came off too, and then the necks of there staffs. There metal was taken, just to cause them loss of face, and the plucking was done to signify the greatness of the Quiche.

After that, they woke up. Right away they reached for there headdresses, along with the necks of there staffs. There was no metal on there cloaks and headdresses.

'How could it have been done to us?' Who could have plucked us? Where did they come from? Our metal has been stolen!' said all the warriors.

'Perhaps it's those tricksters who's been abducting people! But it's not over with. Let's not get frightened by them. Let's enter there very citadel! That's the only way we'll ever see our metal and make it ours again!' said all the tribes, but even so, they were just making talk, all of them.

The hearts of the penitents and sacrificers were content, their on the mountain, but even so, Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now and Dark Jaguar were making great plans.

And Then Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now and Dark Jaguar Had A Plan. They made a fence at the edge of there citadel. They just made a palisade (pointed at top) of planks and stakes around there citadel.

Next they made manikins; it was as if they had made people. Next they lined them up on a parapet (top). They were even equipped with weapons and shields. Headdresses were included, with metal on top and cloaks were included. But they were manikins, mere woodcarvings. They used the metal that belonged to the tribes, which they had gone to get in the road. This is what they used to decorate the manikins. They surrounded the citadel.

And then they asked Tohil about there plan:

'What if we die, and what if we're defeated?' They spoke straight from there hearts before Tohil.

'Do not grieve. I am here. And here is what you will use on them. Do not be afraid,' Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now and Dark Jaguar were told, and then the matter of the yellow jackets and wasps was set out.

And when they had gone to get these insects and come back with them, they put them in four large gourds, which were placed all around the citadel. The yellow jackets and wasps were shut inside the gourds. These were the weapons against the tribes.

And they were spied upon and watched from hiding; there citadel was studied by the messengers of the tribes.

'There aren't many of them,' they said, but when they came to look it was only manikins, the woodcarvings, that were moving, with weapons and shields in there hands. They looked like real people, they looked like real killers when the tribes saw them.

And all the tribes were happy when they saw there weren't many of them. The tribes themselves were in crowds; there was countless people, warriors and killers, the assassins of Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, and Not Right Now, who were their on the mountain called Hacauitz. This is where they were when they invaded. Here we shall tell about it.

Next we shall learn the lesson. Of how the insects defeated the tribes. And that being one with nature. Can help you survive your enemies.

Went down to Tucson to record the Pow Wow last Sunday. Here is the link to the 2 videos I made of the beautifully dressed dancers.
