A hawk of Aztec tales. When the sun stopped moving, the gods sent Tlotli to discover why it had stopped and to make it revolve again. The sun sent a message to the gods to sacrifice themselves to make the sun continue its journey. The gods realised that the sun was their superior and thus they sacrificed themselves and the sun moved once more.
