muisca meaning of cuítiva : Qüitiba
Tiba was translated in spanish as 'captain' because JIMÉNEZ DE QUESADA, WHO COMMANDED THE SOLDIERS, used the word 'tiba' to signify the 'ABILITY TO COMMAND'.
in primitive times, 'tiba' was one who served as a regent within a certain domain of the MHUYSQA (muisca) culture.
(i) and (y) semantics can be extensive and will vary according to context. However, 'responsibility', 'regency', or 'command' is always involved in the translation.
Science serves to open new fields studying the knowledge of man and also to correct historical mistakes.
with constant breakthroughs in the muisca language, we must not continue translating TIBA as 'captain' because in doing so, we confine ourselves to the narrow vocabulary of spanish soldiers from centuries ago.
