The Cenote

Mayan legend tells the tale of a tragic love story between a brave foreigner and a beautiful Mayan princess. They met when the Chaman’s daughter saved the white man’s life when her father was about to offer him up as sacrifice. As time went on, the pair teaches each other their native languages, meeting secretly by the cenote at dark and forging a love so strong it could not be broken. One night, the Chaman catches his daughter and her new love together by the cenote. He becomes so enraged that he orders to have his own daughter and the foreigner killed. The Chaman calls on the gods themselves to see the pair put to death in an offering to Chaac, the Mayan god of rain.
