There are an estimated 7 million Indigenous Maya living in southern Mexico and northern Central America at the start of the 21st century. Please do not ask ‘who were the Maya’ as they are very much alive today.
The breakthrough we would like to see is one in which we learn more from the Maya themselves. We’d like to see tourism that benefits the Indigenous communities and in which locals have a greater voice.
What are Maya-owned tourism services?
Who are Maya artisans and where can visitors buy their crafts?
Who is tweeting in the Mayan language? (We’re making a list!)
