When I looked into The First People of the Jaguar 33 Cirillo’s face just moments after the realization that we had stumbled upon an almost unrecognizable Mayan temple, hidden by the same jungle in which he had spent his life, I saw the connection. He knew what he was looking upon, and the incongruity between the grand ancestral past of his people and his simple, almost forlorn present was as inexplicable and frightening to him at that moment as it was baffling to me. The connections among Cirillo, the ruins, the jungles, and the jaguar were there plain as day.
I followed Cirillo’s trail, still trying to pick up the radio signal of the young male jaguar, when I literally bumped into Cirillo’s back. He stood statue-like, machete in mid chop, staring at the wall of foliage ahead. Only it wasn’t a wall of foliage—it was a real wall! Rising up in front of us, along the edge of a creek, was a mound, 50 feet high, that seemed totally out of place. Looking more closely, I could discern square-cut stones protruding from the edge of the mound at different heights.
Often feared not for it was, but for what it was believed to be, jaguars inspired a universal awe and dread that was predominantly of a mystical nature, the fear of an animal possessed When Jaguars Talked to Man 37 of supernatural powers and only partly of this earth. Such a beast needed to be both respected and controlled. The jaguar, with its power, ferocity, and valor, was of man’s world, yet outside of man’s world; it was a strong, secretive animal of the dark, dense forest, linked to the spirit world, godly but not God.
