Guabancex Board #2
Guabancex Board #2
2019

This board was inspired by the hurricane event (huracán) caused by Guabancex and her helpers.

“Concerning another cemí named Guabancex. This cemi lived in the land of a principal cacique, named Aumatex. It is a woman, and they say she has two other cemíes for companions; one is a herald and the other is the collector and governor of the waters. They say that when Guabancex is angry, she raises the winds and water, throws down houses, and tears up the trees. They say this cemi is a woman and is made of stones of that country. Her herald, named Guatauba, carries out her orders by making the other cemies of the province help in raising wind and rain. Her other companion is named Coatrisquié of him they say that he collects the waters in the valleys between the mountains and then lets them loose to destroy the countryside. The people hold this to be gospel truth”, Ramon Pané.
