    When they were a free people, the old wise men had the ability to communicate with the birds, they obtained advice from them and communicated to them what was happening high in the sky. One of these birds told an old man that a giant tiger lived in the sky, who walked at night, when everything was in darkness.


    One of those nights, during the feline's nocturnal walk, he couldn't find enough food to calm his hunger, hours passed and he couldn't feed himself. After waiting for so long, dawn came and the tiger saw the Sun appear, walked towards it and swallowed it whole in one bite. As a result, the Earth was plunged into total darkness.


    For many days, the Tsáchilas lived in darkness, but when they couldn't take it anymore because their food ran out, they made a decision. After a meeting between the wisest shamans, they realized that the only way to save themselves was to create their own sun; So, they chose the strongest young man, the son of a single mother. They began the ritual that would allow the boy to become the Sun. When the ritual ended, his face began to shine with great intensity, it acquired more and more light and his body rose towards the sky. The joy of the Tsáchilas was profound, thinking that the next day they would finally have light and warmth from their resplendent Sun.


    Despite their hopes, they spent three more days in darkness, but on day number four, they were able to see their new Sun. However, the joy was very short, the light of the Tsáchilas Sun was so brilliant that no one could leave their homes. houses because they were instantly blinded.


    Once again the witches met, they came to the conclusion that the young Sun had both eyes open and that the light coming from them was too intense. The oldest and wisest shaman took a rock and threw it at one of the eyes of the sun. boy, so it will close forever. The launch was perfect and from that day on they were able to live again in tranquility and harmony with nature.
