History lesson
22 September 2011 | by pv61See all my reviews

This is why I say that some movies play a didactic role. Thanks to this one, I learned about that tarascan princess named ERENDIRA (means smiling morning in their language) who lived in the time when Spaniards arrive in Michoacán and she faced them as the most courageous of the male Indian soldiers. Ikikúnari means ''untamed'' and Eréndira, went to do something nobody has done before. She took a horse from the Spaniards and learn to ride it. Doing this, she also learned that without the horse, all Spaniards were just like them, only whiter, they were not giant monsters half horse and half man like some Indians believe! In that time, there were no horses in México and it was a mystery surrounding the soldiers, who ran so fast with those four legs under them... Eréndira was now at their own level. She could fight them now, but when she does and she proves her skills, her own people rejects her and it is then when she fights to death against the enemy. Excellent piece from Juan Mora Catlett, who also made RETORNO A AZTLAN, both in the original prehispanic language.
