DescriptionFrancisco Tandioy narrated this version of the best-known mythic narrative in the [Sibundoy] valley, "The Tale of the Shulupsi Bird." Children loved to hear and tell this tale, and the elders saw in it proof that the mythical stories are true: they would point to the shulupsi bird, a small bird the size of a wren, noting her smooth head feathers and ruffled body feathers, the result of actions that are described in this story.
