CIHUATETEOAlso known as CIHUATETO
Five female spirit sisters of the [MACUILTONALEQUE].They are the souls of women who died in childbirth, but unlike the CIVATATEO, they were accorded the same honor as men who die in battle.
They come to take warriors and women to heaven, so don't be too scared of the skull heads and clawed feet.
Actually they don't take you there straight away. You have to go to Underworld East first. We imagine there are passports to be stamped and death certificates to be checked.
