The Aztec Legend of the Hummingbird

the legend of the hummingbird

This time I am going to tell you, as I remember it, the tale of the legend of the hummingbird. It turns out that one of the many grandmothers who always tell you stories was the one who began to tell us this legend of the hummingbird, and so she tells us that there in the valley of the mirror of the moon they all lived in perfect harmony, there was a very beautiful lake, there were trees, there were many birds and they were in a very pleasant climate. The only one who was not very happy was the thorn-billed bird because all the other birds he encountered had a wide variety of colors, but the thorn-billed bird was all gray and he frequently wondered, why did they make me like this?, Why didn’t they give me more colors?

But hey, despite the fact that he was a little shy about the other little birds, he lived a pleasant life in that valley of the mirror of the moon. However, some difficult times passed from a situation where the valley dried up, the rains stopped coming, the winds stopped bringing the rain and the valley of the mirror of the moon was drying up, drying up, even to the point there was no more water, almost nothing.

And then many of the animals without any other remedy began to die, some of the birds could fly a little because they were looking around nearby for some sources of water, but it was very difficult and most of the animals and also the inhabitants near the valley of the moon began to suffer greatly from lack of water.

The beginning of the legend of the Colibrí and Father Sun Tonatiuh

Then, the thorn peak bird starts to think and says “oh well, why has this happened here in my valley? What have we done to make this happen to us? Oh yes, I know, I’m going to ask Father Tonatiuh, Father Sun, what is happening, he must know “and then he took off with the last of his strength and flew, flew, flew up to the top of the clouds and began to see a lot of clarity and approached the sun and through its rays begins to speak to the father sun and literally says:

“Father Tonatiuh, please answer me, what is happening in the valley? Why isn’t the rains coming?”

“Oh, my son, well, look, I don’t know much about that, I’m just in charge of sending the sun’s rays”

“Yes father, but you are burning us a lot, the clouds do not arrive, the rain does not arrive and the sun’s rays are drying everything, everything, we are already scorching”

“Ohh I see, well, look, you should see that first of all with Ehécatl because Ehécatl is the one who carries the clouds and if he is not carrying them then, he will have his reasons, why don’t you go and visit him?”

“good but how do I find it?”

“Ah well, follow the currents of the air that you are meeting right now and follow them up to the mountains to the top of the mountains and there you will find Ehécatl”

The Hummingbird and Ehécatl God of the Wind

Then the little thorn peak bird that grabs and begins to fly and fly and fly with his strength, as much as he could and that reaches one of the highest mountains where the very strong winds blew and there was Ehécatl saying:

“Come on, come on, come on, children take, take the clouds, take the seeds, take, take everything, through the wind, oh how much there is to do, how much to do, come on, come on”

And Father Ehécatl was very busy, but the thorn-billed bird creeps in and says:

“Hey, look, I’m here to tell you about the problem there in the valley of the moon”

“Well what happened?”

“Well, notice that the clouds are no longer arriving and we don’t know what is happening, why are the clouds no longer sending us?”

“Valley of the moon? Ah yes yes; no, look, we can’t send the clouds there; no, no, no, that can’t be done, it can’t be done; no! No! They aren’t sending us any cloud of rain over there ”

“But why? Why Father Ehécatl?”

“Look, I’m just in charge of sending them, directing them, but the rain clouds are sent to me by Tlaloc, the father of rain, I mean the god of rain, the truth is here I only take care of the distribution , and if you allow me, I’m very busy, come on, come on, take the clouds, to that other valley, a hail too! … ”

The Hummingbird and Tlaloc the god of rain

And well that’s how the thorn-billed bird was left thinking about what to do, the moment it starts to follow one of the rain clouds through where they were brought, it follows it, flies, flies, flies and flies with great eagerness , the cloud is being followed and, that he meets Tlaloc !, he came to a place where there was thunder and lightning, now he was in front of the god of rain:

“Yes, come on, let’s go with the rains, let’s take this rain here and there, and form the clouds and let’s go, let’s collect all this water in the form of clouds!”

“Hey! Hey! Father Tlaloc, it’s me, the thornbill bird”

And there among the storm clouds was the little bird.

“It’s me, it’s me, I come from far away, from the valley of the mirror of the moon, they are not sending us anything about the rains”

“Yes son, look, what happens is that in that I have nothing personal against the valley, for me I sent him the rain, but my wife is the one who told me that she will not send anything and you know how they are, I do not have nothing to do with that, but I can’t contradict her, you know, then you have to go look for her and ask her well, what was the reason she didn’t send anything, she won’t let me send anything from the rain clouds over there. Chalchiuhtlicue My dear wife, she walks there on earth between the rivers and everything, because she is the goddess of the terrestrial waters and she will have her reasons for leaving the valley of the mirror of the moon like this, without water. ”

“Well how do I find it?”

“Well you follow this river that I am going to tell you and where it is born out there you will find it”

And there goes the poor little thorn-billed bird flying, flying and he couldn’t stand it anymore, and there he was following the river and no one there knew anything about Chalchiuhtlicue but he continued following the river, he was going very well and took the opportunity to drink a little from the river and he threw himself forward again, advancing until he began to hear a song and some words:

“There we are going to put more water, let’s see, if it goes there and it makes me need another river, there is a lake I am going to put, it makes me also a little lake we are going to put”

“Aloo, Alooo, Mrs. Chalchiuhtlicue”

And the little thorn-billed bird was approaching from on high.

“But how am I going to do it? Come on, those waters … but what? What happened? Why are you distracting me? Can’t you see that I’m very busy? I’m here trying to see how I’m going to do it. these rivers to these valleys and you, come and interrupt me, let’s see what do you want? ”

“Well, yes, I come from the valley of the mirror of the moon and do you know what? They left us without water there and now see that everyone is dying, for a little bit, there will be nothing left of the valley and they told me that you She was the one who ordered that nothing from the clouds reached us, and that the wind did not carry her there and nothing protects us from the sun and inclement weather and the valley is already dying. Please … what did we do to make him leave us like this? ”

“Ah my little boy look, what happens is that after all, remember that there in the valley of the moon live two peoples of the humans and it turns out that they were fighting a lot among them and they were very bad, they were attacking each other the others no longer respected each other, and what’s more, they threw all their waste onto the earth and they also began to throw everything into the rivers, they forgot to honor nature … and I didn’t like that, so for their own good I removed all the water because I could not continue like this, they should be the guardians of the valley and not be destroying it “- Then the thorn-billed bird responds,” Well, yes, but it is because it leaves us all punished. ”

Mrs. Chalchiuhtlicue tells her, “the only thing we can do is for you to be a messenger of peace and love for humans and tell them that Mrs. Chalchiuhtlicue tells them to remember again that they are brothers and that they have to take care the land on which they live, stop throwing garbage, stop neglecting the fields, stop cutting down the trees, because otherwise how is the environment going to be maintained. If you can make them listen to you, I am going to make the clouds of water come again and the very beautiful valley will be filled again ”. And there begins the adventure and the legend of the hummingbird again.
