Promotional Invitation to the Úuchben Maya Ts’íib workshop

Úuchben Maya Ts’íib:
An Online Workshop with Omar Alejandro Chan May

We have already reached the month of May as the end of the dry season finally gives way to the arrival of the rains and the season of planting in Maya lands. This month, we hear from Omar Alejandro Chan May who offered a free, weekly online workshop from February 23 to March 23 this year titled “Úuchben Maya Ts’íib”, sponsored by MAM as part of our mini-grant program for online learning initiated last year. Omar shares with us the introductory session that he recorded with his students in both Spanish and Màaya T’àan. We have added this video to our MAM YouTube channel for all who are interested in viewing it, and we thank Omar and all of the workshop participants for sharing it with us.


We hope to provide additional online video resources from workshops like this in the future, and we likewise look forward to being able to once again offer mini-grants for face-to-face workshops as the restrictions of the pandemic finally are lifted. In addition, we hope to finally be able to set a date for the Congreso next year.


Stay tuned, and may the coming months provide bountiful rain for our Maya friends, and relief for all of us from the past two years of the pandemic.

Yum Bo’otik,

Michael Grofe, President
