Q’inti the Hummingbird – a Quechen story   

One day in the jungle a fire broke out in the jungle

All the animals ran out of the jungle fearing for their lives

Suddenly the Jaguar saw a little humming bird head (q’inti)

The Jaguar asked him what he was doing and the Q’inti said

 “I am flying to the lake and get water to help put out the fire”

The jaguar laughed at him and said, “You’re crazy, you can’t put out this fire!”

The Q’inti replied, “At least I am doing my part.”
