“Weaving is a part of my culture, it’s a part of my Mayan identity. My mother taught me how to weave. She learned to weave from her mother. To keep the tradition alive, I taught my daughters how to weave. Weaving along with our language and traditional dress is an integral part of life as a Maya woman”.
Maria Cuc Jiatz, Maya Kakchiquel
