Se van sus naves / Oscar Vincentelli
After the return to Europe of Columbus’ first expedition, two Eyer.s Indian twins named Bohique and Guaba, arrive in Baiona (Spain) using the technology of foreign ships, being the first American Indians to set foot in Europe. The Eyer.s along with the sailors are confined by Pinz.n, the captain of the ship, in houses far from the village while he notifies the return of the expedition to the Catholic Monarchs. Everyone celebrates the return to land while awaiting the return of Captain Pinz.n, but the twins come with a mission: to inseminate the land of the foreigners. To do so, Guaba must die and become seed and Bohique must get it and sow it. Guaba’s spirit guides Rui Gallego and his brother, the only witnesses to his death, to find the seed. The Eyer.s instruct the sailors in the formation of the conucos, the Eyer. method of sowing. When they finish the cultivation, Bohique plants the seed of his twin Guaba. A solar eclipse leaves the world in darkness. In the midst of this darkness, a root begins to sprout.
