The Seven Caves

For more evidence of the part Cuba played in the foundation of the Atlantis myth,
we turn our attentions to the creation myths of the Mesoamerican peoples, such
as the Aztec, Toltec and Maya.

They spoke variously of their earliest ancestors coming from an island paradise loca-
ted in the east, known variously as Aztlan or Tulan, following a period of darkness
when the sun would not appear. On this island the first humans are said to have emer-
ged from somewhere called Chichomoztoc, the Seven Caves.

From these individuals came seven tribes, or clans, and by their hands rose Seven Cities.

I believe that some semblance of knowledge regarding the creation of the seven cities
in Mesoamerican myth led to Antillia, or Cuba, becoming known as the Island of the
Seven Cities.

Furthermore, just ten years after Christopher Columbus's famous landfall in the Bahamas
in 1492, the main islands of the Caribbean - Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Cuba - were nam-
ed on maps as 'the Isles of Antillia of the King of Aragon', showing how the early Spanish
explorers likewise came to identify them with ancient Antillia and its accompanying islands.
