The funeral of José de Los Santos Sevilla, a teacher and leader of the Tolupán indigenous people in Honduras who was assassinated at 6:30 in the morning on 17 February 2017, at his home in the remote area of Montaña de la Flor where he lived with his wife and six children. He was the eighth Tolupán leader to be assassinated in this small area of the country, the killings were linked to land tenure, as non-indigenous people try to take land from the Tolupán people and run mining and logging there. There are several Tolupan tribes in Honduras, split between Montaña de la Flor and Yoro.
