DescriptionThe story they are going to tell us is about the people who were buried in clay pots, who are now called Camagüil. It is not that they were disobedient and did not know anything, but that they had great wisdom because God himself gave them his knowledge. They died. Maybe now, one was discovered and the people of the present sold it; this way one had money. That is how the story of the Camagüiles during the time of our ancestors goes.
