Bienvenidos

The Maya textiles we see today are documented on ancient stelae of long abandoned Maya cities.  This journey through Chiapas explores the continuance of the Maya, with evidence of how this culture has thrived  despite colonialism.  From the ancient mysticism of the Chamulan`s to spoken languages, pre-Hispanic cuisine and traditional attire, this introduction to the Maya will leave you wanting to explore further.
