"Just because of the crazy times, because of the crazy priests, is it that sadness
overtook us, that 'Christianity' overcame us. Because the 'very Christians' came here with the true God, but that was the
beginning of our misery, the beginning of the tribute... the cause of the hidden discord to come out, the beginning of the
fighting with firearms, the beginning of the outrages... Oh! Let us grieve, because they arrived!"
"They [the Spanish]
taught us to fear; and they came to fade the flowers. For their flowers to live, they damaged and sucked dry the flowers of
the others... There was no High Knowledge, nor Sacred Language, neither Divine Teachings in the substitutes of the gods that
came here. To castrate the Sun! That is what the foreigners came here for. And the sons of their sons stayed here, among the
people, and they receive their bitterness."
Canek said: 'White people made this land foreign
to the Indian; they forced the Indian to buy with his own blood the wind that he breaths. That is why the Indian follows
the endless trail, being sure that the end, the only attainable end, the one that frees him and allows him to find the lost
trail, is where Death lies.'
