ABOUT

MAYAHUEL 

Mayahuel gave origen to the maguey plants. It is said that when Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel were fleeing from Tzitzimitl (stars demon ), they tried to hide by pretending to be branches of a tree. However, Tzitzimitl recognized Mayahuel and broke the branches into pieces. Quetzalcoatl, devastated, buried the pieces, and from those fragments of branches the first maguey plants began to sprout.

This myth is a clear testimony of the admiration that the ancient inhabitants of Mesoamerica had for the agave. The goddess Mayahuel was also part of a group of maternal and fertility goddesses in Aztec mythology. Mayahuel is also associated with the concept of fertility and nutrition.
