Says Xochitl, as she gets ready for the Day of the Dead celebration that's happening down in Texcoco. Her brother wakes up from the nightmare he's had about La Llorona, a folk tale that originated in native culture. Before she leaves, she prays by the altar dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the Native American version of the Virgin Mary, who appeared to a Native American man one day in the desert. When she walks outside, she sees the Mexican flag. On the flag is an eagle sitting on a prickly pear with a snake in its mouth. According to Aztec legend, they were told by god that they should travel South until they find an eagle sitting on a cactus, eating a snake. Wherever they find it will be their new homeland. She wondered why a culture completely influenced by Iberia would put Native American imagery on their country's flag and even go as far as to name said country after the original name of the Aztecs, the Mexica. But she brushed it off. "I'm Spaniard," she said, as she pulled out an umbrella because she didn't want to get dark.
