Descendencia 1 (Cristobal Smoking during ceremony)

Cristobal, the son of a Mayan Spiritual guide is proud to show he can smoke during ceremony like his Father, as some adults present could not. It would seem offensive in Western civilization, but tobacco is of great significance in the Maya world, and used only in ceremony.
