MAM: Mayas for Ancient Mayan

Here’s a link to the new website for MAM: Mayas for Ancient Mayan, an important effort to bring ancient Maya literature to indigenous communities in Mexico, Guatemala and Belize.

From their website:

Mayas for Ancient Mayan (MAM) supports indigenous Mayas who are thirsting to learn the ancient hieroglyphic writing and the calendar. With financial aid from MAM, our Maya colleagues attend workshops and conferences in the US, Europe, and Latin America to learn the latest advances in decipherment of the ancient writing. Combining these advances with ancient teachings from their own elders, our colleagues spread this knowledge in workshops and classes to the Mayan-speaking communities. MAM supports these efforts.

    I have many friends in Momostenango who will be eager to participate in this educational/cultural preservation outreach. Thank you so much for this! I can hardly wait to start teaching my son (and myself) to do glyphic inscriptions.
