Black Howler Monkeys

Black Howler monkeys. In Mayan myth, the gods tried to create humanity three times. The first attempt was from earth, but the new people were washed away during the floods. The second attempt was from sticks, but the people burnt in the fires, creating the black howler monkeys. It was only the third attempt, from maize, that was successful.
