Looking at the Mayan myths it is easy to see some similarities to the Native American myths. This includes the creation of human beings through the process of trial and error. It shows that the “less successful” humans are replaced by more able figures. Going from this, the Mayan myths seem to differ from a lot of the “typical” myths. For example, within the Roman or Greek myths humans are seen to have regressed from a supreme being (the perfect human) whereas within the Mayan myths we see humans slowly progressing into the form that we are today.
I find this to be a very interesting read as it reminds me of when I was younger; my family and I went to Mexico and saw many of the Mayan architectures, including the Mayan pyramids.
