Resurrected as a squash

From time to time, I have pointed to the blog of Tim Lohrentz who writes about the indigenous history of El Salvador.    Most recently, Tim writes about a death and resurrection story in Maya-Lenca culture -- the story of One Hunahpu who is killed and then resurrected as a calabash squash.  As he explains, it is a story with roots in history, agriculture and astronomy.
