Language of Indigenous Descriptionixl
DescriptionThe sacred words expressed by the gentleman for the celebration of the day of the saints: what the people prepared, what they did in the past, and what things are no longer done, because many customs have been lost, and nobody thinks about it. He also tells us what role the Catholic Church plays and what celebration the priest performs during the day of the saints. The other thing he tells us is to ask for the spirit of each deceased, and also about the importance of the visit made by the inhabitants of hot land (Chel, Ilom and Sotzil) here in the cemetery of San Gaspar Chajul.
