Connecting with the Modern Maya – The Chiapas Maya Project
October 1 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
For 26 years, Lori Benson has traveled to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas to work with the Highland Maya. At first, it was part of a continuing project with the Science Museum of Minnesota. Currently, she and colleagues are developing a virtual space to gather archives, photographs, textiles, and artifacts for communities, museums, students, and scholars. Her talk will focus on the stories, the relationships, and the hope for the future. Available in-person and on Zoom.
