Yapoza was an Azuposi human settlement of 1,200 people on the banks of the Pasocada River in Maztica.[1]


A myth surrounded the city's history. It was alleged that when Matsailema, one of the War Twins, went on a rampage across the land, he became tired and chose to rest on the banks of the Pasocada River. While he was resting, a man and woman provided him with food and drink, and in exchange for their kindness, Matsailema pledged to provide the Azuposi people with prosperity, but introduced a matrilineal society to ensure that he kept some control over them. The site at which he took his rest was the site where the city was founded.[1]
