GARCIA BARRIOS, Ana. Chaahk and Bird O' through the Classic Period and Colonial Narrative. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2009, vol.34, pp.91-114. ISSN 0185-2574.

During the Maya Classic period we can find some referentes to a bird named O', that seems to be related to Chaahk. This bird is part of the name of this God on an inscription at Ek' Balam and in many more at Yaxchilan, where it seems to be the patron god. The importance of this mythological bird might be seen by the number of references to it during the Colonial period, as in El Ritual de los Bacabes, where this bird is described being part of symbolic structures associated to the rain god too: the tree and the four cardinal points. This bird also appears in texts related to healing.

Palavras-chave : Chaahk; O'Bird; Yaxchilan; invocation rituals; Classic period.
