We are happy to share with you our latest blog. It highlights the work and art of Walter Paz Joj ─ “5 Ajaw 3 Mak (November 29, 2020): The Living Art of a Kaqchikel Maya Aj Tz’ib’ “. Here is the link: http://discovermam.org/2020/11/5-ajaw-3-mak-november-29-2020/ . Enjoy the beautiful artworks and Walter’s high-resolution photos. This workshop took place before the pandemic spread into Guatemala and Mexico.
We have had to temporarily suspend the workshops until next year, but we are planning ahead when we can once again begin granting funds to individuals for these classes. The monetary support that our Mayanist community has given to Mayas For Ancient Maya (MAM) enable us to continue to support our Maya colleagues in educating their indigenous communities through the organizing workshop grants like that granted to Walter, where the living Maya people are able to connect with their ancestors through the ancient hieroglyphs.
Also, great news regarding Giving Tuesday Week! We have an anonymous donor who wants to match dollar for dollar what others pitch in until this coming Saturday. In other words, if you contribute $100, the donor will match it with $100 and thus you are able to double your commitment. Here is the link where you can go to our secure website to donate: http://discovermam.org/support/.
Thank you so much,
MAM Executive Committee
