  Gold Legend
by colombiantraveler

Let your mind fly in the Tree of Dreams, history with over 400 years of oral tradition, which was originated in the times of the big Muisca chiefs; being Chief El Zipay its legislator Nemequene, one day behind a big tree he fell sleep. That day he had a dream and foresaw his future and his own tribe one, seeing the arrival of the Spanish people to their land. A dream with strange and worried events in which from the North white people with big beards, on giants animals and with brilliant armors, which would bring with them death, and destruction of their Gods and traditions, arrives to their land. When he woke up, he gathered his people to tell his terrible dream: The end of his people, their treasures and their Gods. After that he asked them to collect their treasures to be hidden and buried, originating the gold legend.
