Maya Atlas: the Struggle to Preserve Maya Land in Southern Belize

Pages 88-89.

Toledo Maya Cultural Council
Maya Atlas: the Struggle to Preserve Maya Land in Southern Belize
Berkeley, California: North Atlantic Books, 1997

The flap copy of this volume explains the revolutionary nature of this publication: “The Maya Atlas was made by the forty-two Ke’kchi and Mopan Maya communities of southern Belize. The maps, text, drawings, photographs and interviews were done by Maya village researchers and cartographers elected by the communities. In their own words and with their own maps, the Maya describe their land and life, the threats to their culture and rain forest, and their desire to protect and manage their own Homeland.”
