About this event: The Mayan are the indigenous people of Central and South America. Many Latinx countries have a large population that identify as Mayan and not Latinx.  Many of our Guatemalan immigrants identify as Mayan. We will be looking into a rich culture and language that is over shadowed by the Latinx community.  What can we do to help a community that is still living in fear and wanting a better life in our country.
