    Any idea what the word tayacán refers to -- or what an English equivalent would be -- in the song by Carlos Mejía Godoy about Sandinista co-founder Carlos Fonseca? Thank you.

    Coro:
    Comandante Carlos, Carlos Fonseca,
    tayacán vencedor de la muerte,
    novio de la patria rojinegra
    Nicaragua entera te grita: ¡Presente!
