Nucano (Great Fire) was an important character in the history of Oaxaca, a brave Mixtec warrior who fell in love with the Zapotec Princess Donají, and who, in the name of that love, sought to bring peace to the two nations.
Nucano governed the Zapotecs, and did so with nobility and respect, as his beloved Donají would have done. According to the legend, their bodies lie under a flagstone in the Cuilapam de Guerrero church in Oaxaca.
