In 2011, MAM president Bruce Love delivered two important gifts to Sak Chuen, a cash grant to support glyph workshops in the communities and the loan of a brand new Epson digital projector.
These gifts help the Sak Chuen epigraphy group fulfill their mission:
“To learn about the history and culture of the pre-Hispanic Maya and to recover the cultural legacy they left to humanity, especially to the contemporary Maya population, by means of promoting the knowledge of Maya epigraphy.”
