What is La Siguanaba and Where Does She Come From?

La Siguanaba is a mysterious figure from Central American mythology. She has become a popular figure in Mesoamerican folklore, with stories of her appearing in many countries. Her legend has been told for centuries, and her influence can still be felt today. But who is La Siguanaba? Where did she come from? What are the stories that surround her? In this article, we will explore these questions and more as we take a closer look at the mysterious figure of La Siguanaba.

There is some debate concerning the origin of the figure of La Siguanaba. Some believe that she is an ancient Mesoamerican deity and others believe that her legend has been told through different cultures and has reached a point in time where one culture simply fuses its beliefs with those from a different time period. But whatever her origin may be, the story of La Siguanaba cannot be denied for having deep roots in Central American mythology.

What we do know is that she was said to have been born from an egg, and during pregnancy, she would eat snakes instead of food. Her mother would hide her under a pile of corn and soon after birth, she would devour all snakes hiding under the stack. She was then said to have gone on to become a human-eating monster that terrorized everyone in the region until she met an Indian man who tamed her and taught her how to behave as an animal instead of a human.

And this is the baseline for the short fiction work called La Siguanaba, written by Willy Martinez.
