Inspired by indigenous mythology
According to the oral tradition of the Wayuu indigenous peoples, Maa'ala was a free-spirited young woman who refused to marry. Out of anger and revenge, the man who was in love with her bewitched her into a snake. From then on, Maa'ala lived as a reptile and roamed freely through the Caribbean desert instead of being forced to marry and bear children in the polygynous Wayuu society.
