The Ahuehuetes

Yuriria

The story goes that when Alonso de Sosa (Irouiri), captain general in the Chichimeca frontier, was still in Yuriria around 1550, he caused panic and terror to the Chichimeca barbarians used to commit robberies.

The Chichimecas took part in an assault where they took away the Tarascan Indian singer Antón Trompon’s son, and his wife named María Patueca, who worked with Sosa. Trompon, upon learning what happened, attacked them, so the thieves left part of the loot and fled.

Once the natives recovered part of the stolen goods, they entered their town in triumph and they decided to plant three ahuehuetes in honor of Antón Trompon, whose names are “Antón Trompon”, “María Patueca” and “Niño Perdido” since the child didn’t appear after the attack on the Chichimecas.

This is how the ahuehuetes have remained in the garden near the Ex Convento de San Agustín as mute witnesses of the historical events of the old Yuririhapúndaro, now Yuriria, land of nostalgia and tradition.
