16 Like Shangri-La, the name beckons from the mapsenticing, mysterious and alluring: Ixchigun! I had noticed the place many years ago, and I was always looking for someone who could tell me more about this far-ung outpost. Ask anyone on the street in La Antigua Guatemala if they know anything about Ixchigun and 99-to-1 they will say that theyve never heard of it. e only people I have encountered who know of Ixchigun are hardcore mountain climbers who briey visited it on their way to scale Guatemalas highest peaks. For years I entertained the idea of exploring this little-known region in the north. Finally I found the opportunity, and away we went aboard my land-yacht, cruising into the remote western reaches of the Cuchumatanes Mountains. San Cristbal Ixchigun is one of 29 municipalities that comprise the Department of San Marcos. It is located 270 kilometers northwest of Guatemala City. All but a few stretches of the highway are now paved. e Cuchumatanes are part of the Sierra Madre, the volcanic mountain range that fringes the Pacic Ocean along the entire length of the American hemisphere. Locally the mountain is known ...continued page 66 TRAVEL text/photos by or JansonGetting High in Ixchigune high elevation town of Ixchigun

18 Mara, 21, mother of four, ed dire poverty to come to La Antigua Guatemala hoping for a better future. But she didnt nd the tranquil, colonial paradise that makes Antigua so appealing to travelers worldwide. Instead, she and her older daughter were forced to work long hours for the owner of the house she lived in and barely got anything to eat. e house was frequented by drug dealers, and she had been urged on various occasions to sell her children. Human tracking is not something abstract. It is so shocking that it makes us want to look the other way. Who wants to see young children trapped into forced labor or domestic servitude, young women forced into prostitution and sexually exploited, free men turned into slaves? Who wants to see these 2.5 million victims worldwide? ey do not have postcard smiles; they are survivors who have been through hell. Like countless others, Mara was destitute and far away from her loved ones. She was helplessthe perfect victim for ruthless trackers. She and her daughter had been exploited, and she might have been forced to sell her children if the Institute for Tracked, Exploited, and Missing Persons (ITEMP) had not stepped in to rescue her. Founded in 2001, ITEMP is a borderless anti-human tracking program of Nuestros Ahijados, an NGO well known for having helped thousands of children and families break the bitter chains of poverty over the last 20 years. ITEMP works to prevent, interdict, rescue, recover and rehabilitate victims of human tracking. It provides them with safe houses when necessary, medical and psychological aid, social and legal assistance as well as with education. anks to ITEMP, Mara is now in a safe house, her children are going to go to school, and she is going to enroll is a literacy program. Tears have been shed but joy is taking over. And now she can agree: Antigua is beautiful. If you know about a tracking victim or if you want to help us oer a fresh start to children and young women whose lives have been broken, contact ITEMP.

18 Nesting season for sea turtles is in full swing along Guatemalas Pacic beaches, where from July to December, the olive rid ley (Lepidochelys olivacea) comes ashore to lay eggs. To raise awareness of this endangered species, the third annual Sea Turtle Festival will take place the weekend of Nov. 18-20 in Monterrico and nearby Hawaii. Events include lectures, workshops and activities for children, hatchling releases and nightly patrols in search of nesting females. All proceeds support area turtle hatcheries, which buy turtle eggs from local villag erswho would otherwise eat themto nurture and release. Other highlights include activities such as a beauty pageant, volleyball and beach soccer tournaments, a horse parade, and the areas rst surf competition. Live music, disco and marimba provide nightly entertainment in both towns.Festival de la TortugaConservation by Alice Lee

19 e population of sea turtles nesting in Guatemala is unknown, but the odds are against the reptiles as only about one out of every 1,000 sea turtle hatchlings survives to reproduce. e vast majority of eggs are lost to human harvesting and consumption; de struction of nesting habitat also contributes greatly to the species decline. Guatemala is one of the last bastions of turtle egg commercialization, having been outlawed in most countries of the world. Here the government permits the sale of turtle eggs, provided that 20 percent of the nest gets donated to a local hatch ery. This system has been established as a compromise, allowing people to continue to do what they have done for generations while attempting to keep turtles from dis appearing. Monterrico, one of the earliest destina tions on the coast to use tourism to pro mote and protect sea turtles, became the home of the rst sea turtle festival. Grupo Gestor, a consortium for coastal develop ment, recognized ecotourism as a solution to their problems of sustainability and lack of jobs and education; the group developed the annual festival three years ago. Leading up to this years event, Herma nos de las Olas, the surf NGO putting on the surf tournament, has been oering threeday surf clinics in Hawaii, the nal set for Nov. 11-13. Call Edgar Guilln at 5316-4637 for details and reservations. Hotel reservations are highly recommend ed for the festival weekend, as it is projected to sell out. La Antigua Guatemala transport services provides daily shuttles to Monterrico and there are connecting buses to Hawaii. ere are also direct camionetas from Gua temala City and Antigua departing daily. : http://festivaldelatortuga.infohttp://visitmonterrico.comhttp://hawaiiguatemala.comPhotos by Iaki Oliver

36 The morral (bag) is a common textile item found all over Guatemala and is often distinct to specic municipalities. Bags likely developed because mens traje does not have pockets, and they became a necessary accessory for men to carry small items when walking to the milpa elds or market. Women sometimes use morrales but mostly carry items wrapped in a cloth, which is balanced on their head. e traditional morral of San Marcos la Laguna, Solol, is made from the bers of the maguey plant. e extraction process includes cutting and trimming the leaves, then transporting them to the lakeshore. Here, men pound the leaves with wooden mallets on large stones, after which the leaves are soaked for several days in the lake. is process softens the tough, thick leaf exterior so that when scraped on a plank with a long-handled, dull-metal tool, the inner bers remain. ese are then dried, leg-spun and knitted into beautiful morrales. In other municipalities morrales are made from a variety of materials, techniques, colors, patterns and styles. One such place is Todos Santos Cuchumatn, Huehuetenango, where the common morral is a brightly colored, cotton-crocheted bag. Sometimes techniques and ideas travel from one place to another, and crossovers happen between communities when contact is made, such is the case with a man from San Marcos la Laguna, Solol. ...cont. page 38Morral BuilderTE X TILE S text/photos by Kathy Rousso Salvador crochets a new morral (left) and shows the nished product to author Rousso (right)Handmade bags reect the creativity of a tradition

Mateo subsequently spent three months in the Solol jail. It just so happened that an inmate from Todos Santos shared his cell, and to pass the time this man worked on a morral. Mateo observed him and slowly learned the process for creating a Todos Santos-style bag, which he later taught to his son, Salvador. Salvador perfected the art and now crochets intricate, colorful morrales with one side usually depicting a local lakeside scene and the other, specic to the buyer. In my case, I requested a maguey plant, and as he does with all of his design ideas, Salvador drew a picture of the maguey plant in a notebook. e pages were lled with a variety of other drawings, and from that he crocheted the design. I left the colors up to him, and one month later the bag was complete. When Salvador explained his story to me, he showed me an old photo of his father with a tourist and a crocheted morral. Apparently, the tourist was so impressed with the bag that she had her photo taken with it and upon return to her European home, sent him a copy. is was all the encouragement Mateo needed, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Answer: It is very uncommon for cats to have bacterial infections in their bladders. However, blood and inammation in the bladder are common. e term cystitis describes an inamed bladder, but it does not indicate infection. Unless the urine has been cultured and the specic bacteria isolated, the antibiotics may not do any good. An ultrasound is certainly warranted to show if the bladder wall is thick, if there are stones or crystals or if a growth or deformity is present. Cystitis can be very painful and may aect your cats appetite and activity level. Have your cats urine cultured, get the ultrasound, try to increase his water consumption, and talk to your veterinarian about pain treatment and whether a special diet might help.

56 by Elizabeth Bell /ASK ELIZABETH The Consejo was established by the Guatemalan Congress in 1969 to enforce the Protective Law of La Antigua Guatemala (Decreto 60-69). Written by distinguished Guatemalans who were concerned about the future of this city, the law is intended to protect, restore and preserve all private and public cultural heritage established in the protected area. Without a doubt, it has saved Antigua from destruction. I worked with the Consejo from 1978 to 1986 during which time we prevented Antiguas monuments from falling down by stabilizing and restoring many of them. We implemented housing permits and worked on the restoration of colonial art that was literally crumbling apart. We also developed educational and cultural programs to enhance an awareness of the need to preserve this very special colonial capital. With a board of directors that includes the mayor (as the president of the Consejo) and four representatives appointed by academic institutions in Guatemala City, the Consejo has a conservador in charge of dayto-day activities. While the board appoints the conservador, this task was recently given to a group of qualied local foundations and residents. is permitted local participation in appointing this very important position. After reviewing 21 candidates, the group recommended architect Eduardo Andrade, whom the board immediately and unanimously appointed as the new conservador. is is a great change! We welcome Eduardo as conservador.What is the Orden Diego de Porres?Created by the Consejo in 1974, this award is the highest honor in La Antigua Guatemala. It is given to those whose extraordinary merits and activities have benetted the protection, preservation and research of Antigua. It is named after the main architect of the city of Santiago de Guatemala (as Antigua was originally named), Diego de Porres (1677-1741). Diego was born in Antigua and built many of the main monuments in town, including the Fountain of the Sirens, the Palace of the City Hall, Capuchinas and Santa Clara. e award has three categories: gold, silver and bronze fashioned in the form of a beautiful shell (after the St. James symbol); along with a diploma. I am so pleased and honored to be receiving the gold Orden Diego de Porres this month in a ceremony ...continued page 58What is the National Council for the Protection of La Antigua Guatemala?

I am so excited! e Consejo will honor me for my untiring work over many years in allowing people to know La Antigua Guatemala through her multiple books and lectures and constant activities in the preservation of the city and its cultural heritage. After moving here in 1969, I have lived through all the changes since the Protective Law was passed. During the same ceremony, the rst conservador of the city, architect Roberto Ogarrio, will also receive the award posthumously. is makes the honor even more meaningful to me as I started working with the Consejo and Roberto years ago. Since 1977, 16 gold awards have been given to distinguished people, institutions and governments. I am certainly honored by this award.

From here the climb begins up into the Cuchumatanes. Ixchigun is only 50 kilometers from San Marcos but it will take you several hours as you drive along the steep, winding road, occasionally damaged by landslides and washouts. As always, whenever you head way o the beaten path in Guatemala you should ask locals for information and advice concerning road conditions. Our ascent was slowed considerably because an hour out of town, at an elevation of about 2,700 meters, we were suddenly enveloped by a cloud bank, reducing visibility to no more than 10 meters. As we crawled along up the endless switchbacks the temperature fell to near ...continued page 68as the Cerro Cotzic. From here you can enjoy some of the most spectacular views in all of Guatemala and really appreciate the immensity of the isthmus highest volcanoes: Tacan and Tajumulco, 4,060 and 4,220 meters, respectively (13,320 and 13,845 feet). e town of Ixchigun is surrounded by strangely-shaped mountains and hills, and dozens of rivers and streams meander through the cool alpine forests and tundralike quasi-paramo grasslands. Here it is too high and cold for the cultivation of corn or even wheat, so the local population of some 25,000, nearly all of whom are of the Mam-Maya tribe, eke out a living pasturing sheep. e principal rivers are the Suchiate, which serves as the border between Mexico and Guatemala as it makes its way to the Pacic, and the Grijalva, which turns into the rivers Selegua and Cuilco on their way to the Atlantic side of the country. e town of Ixchigun is surrounded by strangely-shaped mountains and hills, and dozens of rivers and streams meander through the cool alpine forests and tundra-like grasslands.

Another enjoyable side trip is to the little town of San Jos Ixjoyon Ojetenam, where there is a park used by locals for picnicking. e park includes a small lagoon stocked with mojarra, a sh that makes for a delicious fresh-cooked lunch. If youd like to experience a white Christmas in Guatemala, the best place would be Ixchigun, where snow is not unheard of. e nights are freezing cold but the days, in the dry season, are ooded with the most intense sunshine. e locals will be quite surprised at your presence but we found them to be extremely warm and hospitable. When you visit Ixchigun the hands of time turn back several decades, it is a land where magic is alive and well and where the spirit of the people shines outward, welcoming one and all. freezing. Due to the clouds we did not see much during the trip up but that only added to the mystery. When we nally made it to Ixchigun, we were in a freezing-misting rain and opted to camp adjacent to the gas station on the outskirts. ankfully my camper has a heater, which was much appreciated that evening. e manager greeted us in English! As we were to nd out over the coming days, Mam-Maya is the language spoken by the inhabitants, but English is almost as common as Spanish in this district, as many of the people have gone to work in the States. Dawn came with the most brilliant blue sky above and not a cloud present: a perfect day to explore the area. e town itself is pretty small and has only one rustic hotel. We took a drive to the north toward the town of Tacan to check out the highest viewpoint at a breathless 3,500 meters.

In order to eat the fruit of the nance he goes up the tree every day. (Translation by Dennis Tedlock) Fortunately, iconographers who have looked at the trees in murals where a Principal Bird deity perches in the west wall of the San Bartolo murals have all tended to recognize that dierent species of trees are represented. If you look at every scene where the bird deity perches, you dont see much nance fruit. In other words, the perch tree for the Principal Bird deity in Pre -Classic depictions is the calabash tree. It is only in the Post Classic, Highland, Kiche Mayan version of the Popol Vuh, that the perch is listed as a nance tree.

74 Brown gets bad press. People feel bad and say theyre in a brown mood. When one U.S. president wore a brown suit, his sta knew they were in for a tough day. But watch some of the street artists under the golden-brown arch in La Antigua Guatemala as they mix their oils to make a brown: a squeeze each of orange and red. A squeeze of rose, a touch of yellow. A little black, maybe some gray. Beautiful colors, blended just right. And there on the palette, a lovely shade of oil paint for the colonial walls, a darker shade for the hills, lighter again for paths through a coee nca, or maybe for a painting of the coee itself, drying. Brown shades ll the milpas, the corn elds, this season as the old stalks await being turned under. Brown strings of peanut plants stretch on mountainsides in neat rectangles of farms, matching the brown nuts themselves being sold by street vendors. Wheat elds in the Highlands wave greetings in brown, and kelp on the seacoasts ash a deeper reddish-brown. Mix your palette for your own painting of the Guatemalan countryside, and youll need dozens of shadings of brown to do it right: light browns for the walls, deeper browns in the shadows, dark brown for the volcanoes in the dusk. Brown-skinned children at play, browned surfers on the beaches, brown horses plodding with tourists in carriages along the cobblestone-brown streets. You might want to include on your canvas a mahogany-brown table with a light brown tortilla and barbecue-browned meat, or brown beans in a broth of golden-brown cheese. Brown can be tasty indeed. Browns not so bad, mixed right to show o the Mayan pyramids against the green jungle and blue skies. Or brown on village casas, brown sausages hanging in market stalls, brown monkeys swinging at play. Dont let brown put you in a bad moodenjoy brown at its best around Guatemala.

78 For most people, home is where the heart is, but for Gerri and George Chester, home is where Guatemala iswhether theyre in Florida or in La Antigua Guatemala. Tired of moving around every few years for work, the retired Foreign Service ocers decided to set up house in Florida just over 10 years ago and build their dream home where they could keep their boat and sail to the Bahamas and the Caribbean. However, having worked for the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala City, the Chesters werent quite ready to say goodbye to the country they had called home for the previous six years. We fell in love with it here, admits Gerri. It was our last overseas assignment, our kids grew up here and we just loved the Spanish colonial-style houses. Frustrated with what they could nd in the U.S., the former diplomats started searching for inspiration for their dream house around the streets of Antigua. We went through all these magazines looking for ideas but couldnt nd anything, says George. en we went over to a friends house that was designed by (Guatemalan architect/builder) Franklin; we saw it and immediately wanted one. Not wishing to waste any time the Chesters ew Franklin Contreras to Florida to walk their lot and see what he could come up with. A couple of days later, he sketched something on the back of an envelope and so the project began. ...cont. on following pageL I FES T YLE by Anna-Claire Bevan www.annaclairebevan.wordpress.com Migratory House

Although the initial idea for a Spanish colonial residence in Florida presented them with a few challenges, this museum-quality house bottles the essence of Guatemala. It is a tribute to the strength of architecture in the country and a testament to the unique way that chapn life captures peoples hearts. At the end of the day it was teamwork, and I have to admit that George and Gerri did a wonderful job of providing Florida with a avor of Antigua, says Franklin. nouveau chair and ve pairs of antique wooden doors, bought at the Chichicastenango market. I think the real challenge was for the builder in the U.S. to use my design and adapt it to comply with all the regulations, codes and building processes so that it was livable and coherent with the Florida environment, recalls Franklin. I know how dicult it is even to change an outlet in the U.S. if you dont have the right certied electrician with a license, insurance and so forth. We did our best to send instructions on how to put together all the pieces of the terraza espaola and other details, but this was a totally dierent language for the contractor. With its soaring cathedral ceiling, 26foot high wood-burning replace and outdoor swimming pool, the Chesters dream home is a beautiful rendition of a 1700s luxury Guatemalan home. Everybody told us we were crazy not to screen in the pool, but that wouldnt be in keeping with the unique colonial style of our home, exclaims George. With careers that have taken the couple all over the globe, its not just Guatemalan artifacts that decorate the Chester household.

Surely the maximum height would vary depending on the climate, so nance trees in the savannas of Petn (near La Libertad, for example) would be shorter than nance trees outside the savanna environment. Nance fruit is called craboo, crapoo and wild craboo in Belize. e common name nance has been utilized in such Guatemalan place names as El Nanzal (a nance grove), El Nance and Los Nances. El Nance is a town in Baja Verapaz, Guatemala. e word today is a Hispanicized version of Nahuatl (Aztec language) origin and is used throughout Central America. e next time you are in a local market in Guatemala, or the next time you read the Popol Vuh, we hope that this introduction to the nance tree has helped you learn another bit of information about the plants used by the Maya of the past and present. of the nance tree bark and leaves. Branches cut from the trees thrown into the water can stupefy sh; the bark can be used to tan leather. A liquor of nance is made in Mexico and in Central America, and many people speak of various medicinal uses of nance fruits or bark. e fruit is sold in large quantities in markets because it is so cheap. Sweets and desserts are made from the fruit; the juice is used for avoring aguas gaseosas and other beverages; and the rind gives a light-brown dye that is used in Guatemala for tinting cotton textiles. Ink is sometimes made from the bitter green fruit. e bark is a favorite material for tanning skins, and an infusion of the bark is a current domestic remedy for diarrhea.T he N ance T ree cont. from page 70

86 What would make people want to run barefoot uphill for eight kilometers? e answer: a 1958 foot race departing Panajachel for nearby San Andrs Semetabaj. Scores of participants could not aord shoes, but they would not let this keep them out of the race. e excitement of that event was such that only a year later it went national, and terminated in Guatemala Citys Plaza de Armas. But it still begins in Panajachel every April, where a statue erected in 2008 commemorates its golden anniversary. One foot of the bronze runner in Panajachels park is shoeless, in memory of the unshod. e very rst marathon runner was even more exposed to the elements. Pheidippides, an Athenian soldier, is said to have run 26 miles from the port of Marathon to Athens to announce the victory of the Greeks over the invading Persians. He was not wearing a Neiman Marcus cashmere jogging suit; according to tradition, he was fully naked, and he collapsed after giving the news: We have won! en, the legend says, he died. e rst modern Olympics was launched in Paris by French and Greek boosters in 1896. A run, called a marathon, was present at this inception, and over the past century local marathons have proliferated worldwide. All celebrate Pheidippides famous sprint, and the length of the race has been standardized at 42.481 kilometersthe distance from modern Marathon to modern Athens. Greece still hosts a race along Pheidippides assumed route, but marathons are hardly new to Guatemala. Today they pass through the rareed and pine-scented heights as runners set out from the hosting cities of Guatemala, La Antigua Guatemala and Cobn. e Panajachel marathon, not to be confused with the longer race rst held 53 years ago, will be Guatemalas newest, with the maiden event scheduled for 2012. But whereas the other Guatemala marathons are commercial endeavors, the Atitln Marathonas it is calledis almost a crusade. e idea germinated in a conversation between two Panajachel hoteliers seeking a solution to the economic doldrums of the Atitln Basin, which depends heavily on tourism. e 2009 cyanobacterial bloom on Lake Atitln spooked much of the international clientele, who stayed ...cont. on following pageRunners On Your MarkMarathon fever comes to the shores of AtitlnLake Views by Dwight Wayne Coop Runners along the planned marathon route: Roxanna A. & Cheryl M.

88 A titln Marathon from previous pagecayuco (native canoe) race, coee tours, an arte naf painting exhibition, photo hikes around the rim of the lake, and a concert blending contemporary Latin jazz and preColumbian music. Between these, Morgan says, and what the lake already oers year-round, theres something for everyone. e timing of the Atitln Marathon, tentatively set for the last weekend in May, was dictated by weather and tourism cycles. It will not conict with major holidays, other marathons or the rain. e altitude, however, enhances the challenge: the half-marathon straddles the lakeshore, which is already a mile high. But the full marathon ascends 2,000 feet; the exact prole and route can be seen at the event website: www.atitlanmarathon. com. But as with any marathon, volunteers will be liberally stationed to provide water, electrolyte replenishment, rst aid and, of course, applause. One thing still lacking is international recognition. ats only because weve yet to stage our rst race, Morgan explains. But we already have a promised donation of Q100,000 from Gatorade, and another of Q45,000 from Banco de Antigua. All this augurs well for the future. Just imagine how many sponsors we will have by the time of the second Atitln Marathon! One contestant already signed up is Floridian Nancy Pullo, who is 70 but does not even look 60. Im what 70 is supposed to look like, she says. If you eat right, exercise consistently, and eschew tobacco and liquor, etc., you stay healthy. My daughter also runs. And my granddaughter, whos 10, has already entered events. Pullo, who began running in marathons nearly 40 years ago, is ...cont. on following pageaway for reasons that were mostly misinformed. Many organizations have emerged to deal both with the contamination of the lake and the bad publicity. e cleanup now proceeds apace with good, if not yet spectacular, progress, because it is the only issue uniting every constituency: Maya, ladino, expatriate, volunteer and tourist. e events two formulators reect this diversity. New Jerseyan Richard Morgan and Guatemalan Alberto Rivera are today the chairmen, respectively, of the marathons international and national committees. ey are joined by other local leaders in a campaign of concrete action to protect Atitln and revive the regional economy. Our marathon is unique, asserts Morgan, a retired U.S. Army colonel who has penned books on Guatemala ranging in topics from medicinal plants to colonial churches to nativist art. He is also, as every dawn stroller in Panajachel knows, an avid runner himself. All proceeds from the entry fees, Morgan explains, go to clean the same lake for which the marathon is named. And the thousands of folks we hope to draw in will improve the commercial situation as an ancillary benet. e route of both the marathon and the planned half-marathon follow a path through the lakes eastern shore and the mountains above it. But communities all around the lake will benet, Morgan says. Towns and hamlets that are not on the route, or even near it, have come aboard with us, since contestants and spectators will be doing and discovering things elsewhere in the basin during the ve days of planned activities. ese activities complement the two main races, and their venues are spread throughout the basin. ey include a kids run, a fun run for adults, a bike race, a

She discovered the marathon because her daughter, biologist Susan Patlyek, was a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala in the 1990s and has returned to live in the country.

For every animal adopted, more and more take their place. Its so easy to rescue an animal. Next comes the hard part: these dogs and cats (of all ages, in all manner of condition) need medical attention, spay ing/neutering, vaccinating, they need to be housed and comforted, fed and walked, brushed many will live out their lives at Hound Heights, cared for by human kindness and generosity. They deserve no less. Just because they dont have a home, doesnt mean they dont deserve a life.

108 Atthe beginning of time, accord ing to ancient Mayan legend, the gods from their center spun out the cosmos, setting in place the universe. e corn god laid out the four corners and erected the World Tree in the center, from whose branches grew one of everything to come. When they became too full, the fruit fell, scattering seeds. e old tree then provided shelter for the new plants and nurtured them. e stump has continued to exist as the center of the world. Creation and acts of the gods in making the world and regulating nature has been at the heart of Mayan thought and religion for 3,000 years. Mayan civilization ourished at the time of Christ in what is now Central America, building magnicent and colos sal cities and temples. e Maya world view that survives in Guatemalas indigenous culture looks back, contrary to the Western world view that looks to the future. For the Maya, the past sustains the present. e weaving tradition expresses that past and the world view, full of symbol ism which connects the Maya to all of cre ation. e Maya people center themselves in the cosmos and creation by the cloth they weave. e spindle is seen as the cen ter, from which yarn is spun out. Myth has it that a Maya woman, led by a goddess, learned to weave by watching a spider weave a web. e back strap loom is seen as an aspect of the World Tree, the weaver feeding the loom to create. Wearing the traditional, woven costume ( traje ) is part of the backward focusthe importance of customs. e tradition of weaving contin ues in the traje, and so the Maya maintain their identity. Girls learn to weave at age four or ve. Women generally design their own blouses ( huipiles ) and spend several months weaving their creations. It is a costly process, both in time and money, and the huipil is worn for many years. Designs may be passed down W e a v i n g a Hi s t o ry TRA DITION by Joy Houston

PAGE 111

109from generation to generation, with styles unique in colors and designs particular to landscape, ceremonies and mythology of each Maya group. Yarn for the weavings is of locally grown and spun cotton or, in the colder climates of the highlands, ne wool.The traje of an indigenous Maya woman identies her ethni cally and socially. Further information of civil status or position may be shown in the manner in which certain articles are worn. For example, the way she wears the hair ribbon may tell whether she is mar ried or single. Earliest weavings used only geometric designs but then added fauna and ora. Tex tile motifs celebrate life, showing harmony with nature and the cosmos in symbols such as seeds, rays of the sun, phases of the moon, corn, volcanoes, birds and other animals, water jugs. Vivid colors of the weavings re ect the owers that abound in Guatemala. Much of the meaning of the symbolism has been lost or changed, making it dif cult to research this signicant aspect of Mayan clothing. And younger women, feel ing more and more social freedom, choose colors and patterns according to preference rather than identity. Often huipiles are sim ply less expensive fabric blouses with ma chine embroidery. Also increasingly, there is the choice of modern Western clothes. e weaving tradition is a dynamic art form with ties to the past. It is more than craft. Artisans have lled their weavings with memories of their people. It serves as an instrument of ethnic identity and has also become a major source of income, with tourists choosing table coverings, napkins, bags, pillows, bedspreads and more. Remarkably, the Maya and their tradi tion have adapted and survived. Textile motifs celebrate life, showing harmony with nature and the cosmos in symbols such as seeds, rays of the sun, phases of the moon, corn, volcanoes, birds and other animals, water jugs.
