February 20th is Guatemala’s national holiday, commemorating its national hero, Tecun Uman. A legend of Guatemala tells the story of this hero who died in battle fighting against the Spanish, and the national bird, quetzal, that wept for his death. This story of a hero’s journey in times of hardship has been passed down through the generation, offering comfort to the people of Guatemala. The myths and tales that were once orally told were recorded in writing, making them more accessible for sharing and communicating in the present day. Just as there is Samgukyusa in Korea, Guatemala has the Popol Vuh, containing its ancient legends and historic events of the Mayans. This week we’ll meet with the Ambassador of Guatemala to S. Korea, Marco Tulio Chicas Sosa, and delve into the wonderful legends and stories of both countries.
