Mayan Priests Fight Bush's "Evil Spirits"

"Miro El Diablo!!!"

I am fascinated with ancient cultures in general, but the Mayan people are especially amazing to learn about. The art, astronomy, & engineering they developed in the jungles of Central America continue to amaze people today. Indigenous Mayan shamans are still practicing their traditional religion, but in a more peaceful form than the state-sanctioned priesthood that existed when the Spanish arrived.

"That a person like (Bush),
with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States,
with the wars he has provoked, is going to walk in our sacred lands,
is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture,"

It takes alot to be considered evil by people whose spiritual leaders once ripped the hearts out of living people to maintain political control of the population...
