4 ED1999.6.1 Bag Small bag (9 x 10cm) embroidered with stylized animals on the front, a geometric design on the back. Cream canvas with a red drawstring. Includes a pamphlet on the Reserva Ecologica Huitepec (Huitepec Ecological Reserve), which is located in the state of Chiapas in southern Mexico. The pamphlet and bag are made by Pronatura, which is the largest Mexican environmental conservation group.  The text in the pamphlet relates the etiological myth from the Popol Vuh that explains why rabbits have long ears. The hero twins tried turning the forest of Huitepec into cornfields, and the animals interferred. The rabbit was punished by being pulled by the ears, making them longer.  "Los Mayas han tenido siempre un gran respeto por la naturaleza uno de sus cuentos, que fue escrito en el antiguo libro, El Popol Vuh, y que hoy mismo se sigue  relatando, dice como los heroes trataron de hacer milpa en el bosque y sus hermanos, los animales lo impidieron. Segun Manuel Arias de Chenalho; “Distintos animales llegaron a recitar: yokan te, yokan’ak’ yokan emol, yokan’amal (levantense arboles, bejucos montanas y selvas). Y se levanta la montana. Y dijo el Kox al conejo menor, estas jodiendo mi trabajo” y lo agarro por las orejas haciéndoselas mas largas Si, dijo el conejo porque no es tu lugar aqui.  La gente debe trabajar y hacer su milpa pero algunos lugares se deben dejar en paz. Diseno tradicional de Chenalho de conejo que hablo con el Kox. Porque el Kox jalo sus orejas, hoy los conejos las tienen largas." ED1999.6.1 (Bag) image
