DescriptionThe gentleman talks about the importance of Andrés Hill. The hill has always existed. It is a man named Andrés in our language. He has his satchel, he has a belt, he has white pants, because the hill is a person, and it is the hill that is used the most. There are other hills such as Juil or Tz'unun Kab' that are not used as much. However, on Andrés hill they come to burn incense, candles or pom (incense), because the hill is very important and is visited with the hill of Xelaju (Quetzaltenango).
