Spirits of the Jaguar

By David Johanssen

For a thousand years the Maya ruled the jungles of southern Mexico and Central America. They built huge cities and enormous pyramids that vaulted hundreds of feet into the skies. Then, seemingly in an instant, the Maya Empire collapsed, leaving thousands of elegant stone carvings hidden in the region’s lush tropical forests. Even today, the ancient monuments are being discovered.

The Maya believed that gods, who added their own blood to flour made from corn, created them. Thus, they were children of the corn, along with gods personified by the fierce jaguar and the life-giving rain. They worshiped the jaguar that is said to have the ability to cross between worlds. For the Maya daytime and nighttime represented two different worlds. The living and the earth are associated with the day, and the spirit world is associated with the night.
