DescriptionDon Miguel will explain to us the reason for the name of the community of Chel and who told him. “My grandfather told me that its name was Tzi’ Ixchin A' and they did not call it Chel. Some men were the ones who discovered the place, or so I used to hear my grandfather because I slept in his bed, but little by little they called it Chel. There were not so many people, but there were still many trees. Here in Xesayí only Don Pablo and Doña Maria lived here. There was also Don Alejandro who was called Milisiano. That’s what they called him because our neighbors feared him because they could not speak in Spanish.”
