muisca meaning of Fira(b)itoba:
"the code / c-e / has to do with air but the ideogramic description is much more complete. it contains the sum of the four winds + a waterfall or cascade + the force of air. possible translations are: 'country of the waterfall' or 'cascade' or 'stream where the four winds converge or intersect'. a more appropriate name that doesn't diminish the beauty of the description could be 'region of the cascade where the four winds meet'.
The male code meant: FIRABITOBA el TCHYKY was the only one WHO HAD THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT THE ATA TA ceremony IN THE SACRED LAKE OF guata bi ta."
