In the previous blog you met the teaching teams, Sak Chuwen, Ajtz’ib’ab’ / PLFM (Proyecto Linguistico Francisco Maroquin), and Guillermo Bernal. You saw them interacting with Congress participants. That was the first goal of the congress – reuniting speakers of Mayan with the writings and wisdom of their ancestors.
Mission accomplished! Now for the second goal – sharing with their communities to build a better Maya future.
These photos from previous local workshops exemplify the reports that we can expect from our colleagues in 2014-2015. This is the next generation of Maya epigraphers and community leaders.
