Acknowledging The Mayan
Ever our name invokes memories and living monuments.
We are the Maya, the power of the people rooted in the earth and in the sky and in the spaces between them.
We live today in Chiapas in Mexico and through Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. We are those pursued and slaughtered in the Contra Wars. 70,000 of us perished in El Salvador. The organizer of the campain against us, Negroponte, moved next to Iraq.
That spirit now ranges through indigeneous lands worldwide.
But know our spirit and those to whom the earth and the sky and spaces in between sing;
