In "Entre los indios", the devil decides to appear to a group of Indians. His appearance, he thinks, will cause panic. But apparently, he's wrong. On the night he chooses to appear, there's a banquet. Men and women eat and drink until they become so tired and exhausted they can no longer see anything, much less flee. The children, far from panicking, assume he's a toy to ride happily. Of course, the devil doesn't give up, and refuses to admit that his work is futile. However, he fails in every attempt. After these accumulated failures, which are more and more joyful, suspicion is turned from the devil to the tribe, whose possessions are merely horses to ride, stolen mares to eat, and some leather awnings. The tribe does not build anything and prefers not to talk. And somehow, it continues to resist the devil.
