The bird people

One of the intriguing narratives we have in our lineage is that regarding the bird beings, who were among many other interesting creatures from the stars, who came down and built the lenca lands. Our people made monuments and drawings in their memory. These beings were not gods, nor were they divinities. What we know is that they were members of the building crew, they were peculiar looking and were loving towards our royals. They were great carers of our small vulnerable tribe. Most of their monuments were destroyed by superstitious Catholics, who belived we worshiped rather than remember. This is one of few etchings of one of their stone portraits.
