We sacrifice to the devil, so he will not take our lives instead.

—Mario Bravo, Rosario Bajo mineshaft, 1994


If you see the Tío, the devil, walking around, you can go crazy or die of fear. The Tío is God here: if he wants accidents, he will have them.

—Bernabé Mamani, Candelaria Baja mineshaft, 1997
