Numerous native groups do not believe in making permanent records of sacred events out of reverence for the original. The legacy of outside groups, beginning with the Spanish, suppressing native religious life and forcing them to carry on their rites in secret, also made them suspicious of whites who wanted to record their ceremonies, which they feared could be used as evidence for additional repression.
