Introduction / History

Cabecar believe in a supreme creator god named Sibo (See-boo), who reveals himself to all groups of people and gives them laws to follow. They believe Sibo walked among their first ancestors and taught them their specific laws to follow. However Sibo is not a personal god that anyone can know. There are also other gods and celestial beings, as well as ancestors. They are all to be feared. Sibo is the creator god of the Cabecar. Some Cabecar who have learned about Christianity insist that Sibo is the same person as the Lord Jesus Christ.
