Anyone know of any dark, dangerous, or deadly latin american myths? (mayan, aztec, inca, ext) - November 16th 2009, 08:32 PM

I'm working on a project for spanish about latin american culture. I origionally wanted to do el Chupacabra, since there's controversy over it's existence and different forms of it and such. But my teacher doesn't think it's enough... (even though I'm basically already managed to make the entire powerpoint almost, if not over, the amount of slides we need.)

So she suggested I do a bunch of myths and legends from the Mayans, Aztecs, Incas, and all of thost civilizations down there and such. But I want to keep it kind of dark and creepy and stuff (I enjoy scaring people in this class. Then surprising them by being surpringly happy-go-lucky. lol messing with people's heads)
So far I've got the Chupacabra, and how the Mayans 'predicted' the end of the human race. (put in quotations because as few of you might know, the mayans never, ever said the world was gonna end. From what I know, it's simply when their calandar ended. They could have just run out of time to go further... It also simply marks a strange planet alignment, not the end of the world... (it's also my birthday!!!))

ANYWAYS.... Anyone know of any more creepy, violent, demonic myths I can look up? Many of the stuff when I type it in google is like, their gods and how the world was created.

(I also thought of going into how the Aztecs did their sacrifices and how the Mayans punished people; cutting off tongues if people spoke out of turn or something. But it's not really do with myths or legends so....)

Take me seriously.
I dare you.
