The legend of Lucia Zenteno is part of the oral history of the Zapotec Indians of Oaxaca, Mexico. It tells the story of Lucia, a beautiful, yet strange and different woman. While the elder villagers believed she should be honored and treated with respect, the other villagers were afraid of Lucia. They treated her meanly and drove her out of the village. Lucia went to bathe one last time in the river, who loved her. The river, fishes, and otters flowed into her long hair, and would not be combed out. When Lucia left, the river, fishes and otters, left with her, leaving behind a barren land. The villagers realized that their cruelty was wrong, and the entire village went in search of Lucia. Lucia came back to the village and combed out her hair, releasing the river, fishes and otters. This is a moral story, teaching that despite our differences, everyone must be treated with honor and respect.
