14 September 15 is best known for the civic ceremonies, childrens marching band parades and marathons with Olympic-style torches as Guatemala celebrates its independence from Spain (1821). Spanish America declared independence between 1808 and 1826 and many eorts were intertwined. While women participated behind the scenesinuencing family members and friends at homesome outstanding women also participated openly. Before independence, Guatemala included what is now southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica as the Captain General of Guatemala, so studies also include womens eorts in all provinces at the time. Much of the information has been left behind in oral history (historians prefer documents), but more studies in the role of women in Guatemalan journalism are emerging as we prepare for the Bicentennial. Two favorite Guatemalan women leaders, known as prceres, are Mara Dolores Bedoya de Molina and Mara Josefa Garca Granados. Mara Dolores (1783-1853) is famous for parading through the streets of Guatemala City the night of Sept. 14, 1821 to support the signing of the Independence and in organizing the Independence Fiesta the following day with reworks and marimba. Many of her views are found in letters to her husband, Independence prcer, Dr. Pedro Molina, children and friends. Her views also reect the independence of women in a mans world. Mara Josefa (1796-1848), known as Pepita, came to Guatemala around 1810-11 and, due to her familys position, was in constant contact with the most inuential families, particularly at famous tertulias (regular informal gatherings) at Jos Mara Castillas house in Guatemala City. One of the rst women journalists in the country, using the pseudonym of Juan de las Vias as not to be recognized as a woman, she founded political and literary newspapers. She published boletin del clera as a satire of the times and poetry, which was a common genre for illustrious women in those days. Much more is happening behind the scenes. e Bicentennial Commission for Women and Independence of Latin America just celebrated its rst congress in August 2013 in Lima, Peru (UNESCO/Universidad San Martn de Porres), after a number of symposiums and new publications leading up to this. With the input from experts from all over the Americas, new information will be coming soon on the participation of women in independence. ese eorts also led to women receiving the right to vote in Guatemala in 1946.

17 When Adolescent Girls Advocacy and Leadership Initiative (AGALI) founder Denise Dunning envisioned producing a lm about girls leadership and advocacy, she wanted one clear message to shine through: Girls dont have to be victims. Girls, even those facing tremendous obstacles, can become powerful agents for change, said Dunning. Emmy Award-winning director Lisa Russell accentuated that message by ipping the standard girls-as-victims documentary lm perspective 180 degrees in Poder! a short and inspiring lm previewing in Guatemala and the U.S. in early October. ere are no victims in Poder! e story follows Elba and Emelin, two adolescent girls who successfully campaigned for girl-friendly health and education programs in their community of Concepcin Chiquirichapa, outside of Quetzaltenango. Based on Elba and Emelins true story, the lms combination of advocacy and artistry ultimately shows the two girls, who play themselves in the lm, in a more accurate light than the old-school documentary focus on tears and pity. is lm is not about victims; it is a lm about victory. AGALIs leadership and advocacy program, which ultimately led to the girls success, sets the stage for such victories. AGALI oers advocacy training for leaders in Central America and Africa who are already working successfully with adolescent girls and are now ready to take their work to the next level. While working at the Association of Research, Development and Education (IDEI), Juany Garca Perz attended Guatemalas rst AGALI workshop in 2009 with the goal of improving conditions for girls in the indigenous Mam communities of Concepcin Chiquirichapa and San Miguel Sigil, where girls had little access to education or healthcare, and only 14 percent of girls completed primary school. With the tools she learned in AGALI, Garca decided she didnt want to advocate on behalf of girls while they passively waited for change; she wanted them to learn how to actively lead and advocate for themselves. AGALIs intensive program gave Garca the additional tools, knowledge, skills, and funding she needed to empower girls in her community to become advocates. Garca returned to Concepcin with both training and nancial support from AGALI, and began a yearlong capacity-building program for 9-to 15-year old indigenous girls. AGALIs leadership and adovacy program produces short lm in Guatemala FILM by Linda Conard Investing in girls leadership will not only transform girls lives, but also their communities, countries, and the world.

18 Although many of the girls had little formal education, they eagerly learned skills and launched strategies to create community change, through public speaking, media outreach, engaging community leaders, and grassroots organizing. eir results of were nothing short of remarkable. Elba, Emelin, and the other girls in the IDEI program applied their new skills to advocate for improved education and health care for girls. ey organized community events and forums with local ocials, mobilized townspeople at public forums, created active commissions that held public talks on domestic violence and girls health, oered peer counseling, and delivered radio programs in Mam and Spanish about sexuality and teen pregnancy prevention. e mayor of Concepcin eventually approved and signed policies developed by the girl advocates and IDEI, and allocated 0.5 percent of the total municipal budget to open a Municipal Oce of Childhood and Adolescence. Two of the girls supported by AGALI were later appointed to the Municipal Commission of Children and Youth, becoming the rst girls in Guatemala to sit on a town board of directors. ese girls Poder! will preview in venues in Guatemala, San Francisco, CA, and other locations in early October in honor of the International Day of the Girl on Oct. 11. It will appear at international lm festivals in the Short Narrative Category before its global premier on International Womens Day, March 8, 2014.

According to the Global Climate Risk Index, Guatemala is one of the top 10 countries most aected by climate change due to its geographical location, which leaves it susceptible to natural disasters. Guatemala generates one of the lowest carbon emissions per capita, but is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world, said Patricia Orantes, director of CNCG. At the same time, Guatemala is one of the countries with the most biodiversity [] but this natural richness is under grave threat: e sheer rate of deforestation went from 93,000 hectares per year in 2001 to more than 132,000 in 2010. CNCG will be led by the international conservation group Rainforest Alliance together with various environmental, business and academic institutions. By focusing on various areas such as deforestation, reducing carbon emissions and strengthening Guatemalas adaptability to climate change, it is hoped that CNCG will succeed in conserving the countrys natural resources. One of its most innovative strategies includes working with rural and community-based businesses, which produce forest products, to help them nd more markets to sell their sustainable goods to. e four regions in which the project will operatela Reserva de la Bisfera Maya, la ...continued page 76New environmental project aims to reduce the eects of climate change in GuatemalaThe sheer rate of de forestation went from 93,000 hectares per year in 2001 to more than 132,000 in 2010.

20 Just minutes from La Antigua Guatemala is an amazing agri cultural project, quietly doing a load of good for the planet and in digenous communities in Guatemala. Situated just outside of San Miguel Dueas, is the Valhalla Macadamia Farm. e farm produces wonderful organic macadamia nuts, makes/pro duces an exceptional line of skin care products, serves a tasty breakfast, and is doing its part to help reduce global warming and educating indigenous communities around Guatemala about all the good that can come from growing macadamia trees. I didnt know they grew maca damia in Guatemala! exclaim many friends when I tell them about this gem. Indeed they do grow macadamia and they do it very well. Lorenzo Gottschamer is the man behind this successful project, and along with his wife Emilia and their son Ricardo, they are doing some amazing work. e macada mia trees at Valhalla are all grown using open geneticsmeaning no grafting. e trees come straight from the seed. e trees are a hardy variety and have been carefully se lected to grow and produce an ex cellent crop. Every tree converts 63 cubic feet of carbon dioxide a day into 55 gallons of water vapor. If youve never seen a macadamia tree, now is your chance. If you dont have transportation you can hop a camionetta to San Miguel Dueas and tell the driver to drop you o at the macadamia farm, or take a taxi direct. Breathe in the clean air while walking through the forest of trees as your feet crunch along the path made of crushed macadamia shells. One of the workers on the farm will guide you through the macadamia nut processing cycle, showing how it is collected and how they use clev er machines to break through the by Tara Tiedemann photos :Luis F.

Ripe macadamia arent picked from the trees like apples; you have to wait until they fall to the ground to collect. After an informative tour, your guide will take you to the store to sample the raw nuts, and also youll get to taste the divine chocolatecoat ed variety. Recline back in the onsite spa chairs and luxuriate in a minimacadamia oil facial. Did you know that macadamia oil contains two ma jor anti-aging acids: palmitoleic and linoleic? ese acids can reduce and remove age spots and lines and are excellent to prevent scarring. e ne molecular structure of the oil pen etrates deeply for a nice moisturizing eect that doesnt leave an oily residue or clog pores. I swear by it! Be sure to stay for breakfast and order up the macadamia pancakes. ey come served with fresh home made blueberry jam, and macadamia butter and fresh fruit. I make special trips out to the farm to indulge in this breakfast and stock up on more macadamia cream. If you decide to make a purchase from Valhallas skin-care line, you can feel good knowing that the proceeds are used to nance their farms project of planting macada mia trees in a variety of indigenous communities around Guatemala. In the last 10 years, over 350,000 trees have been planted. Once the trees start producing in four years, Valhalla buys back the nuts from the communities for use in its retail products. is project has been so successful that it was awarded the International Human Rights Con sortium Medal in the Environment category in Geneva in 2004. Rearrange your schedule, and hop on the bus and head out to Valhalla. Youll learn something new and con tribute toward a great project doing ne work here in Guatemala. Plus, chocolate-covered macadamia and organic macadamia cream make ex cellent unique gifts to take back to family and friends at home.

32 I once knew a Vietnamese couple named Hau and Wen. No, really. When their rst kid was born, the wags who hate to change diapers said he could have been christened Why. An alternative christening for my column might be, e How and Why of Spanish. I admit to spending more time on the how than the why. Maybe that is because my credentials suck. Or because I am only smart enough to observe but not explain. Reader, judge for yourself. But this is another area where you must wean yourself from the applesauce and strained peas of Spanish 101, where Spanish is easy because each English word magically equates with a single Spanish word. Yeah, right. Howness and whyness command their own lexicon in Spanish. How is never really como, except as an interrogative: Cmo? Plain old como is closer to as or even to like, especially for making similes or indicating degree. Look at this simile: Falsta was as fat as butter. e rst as becomes tan (more on this later) and the second, como: Falsta es tan gordo como la mantequilla. Fatness not withstanding, he had mistresses. How many?Cuntos? To answer, you use tantos or tantas working with como: El tuvo tantas amantes como el Rey Enrique VIII. Or maybe even tanto como Enrique Kissinger. Why the chicks go for Falsta and Kissinger may be for you a big question, but you at least know how to start it. Use Por qu? You are unlikely, in Spanish 101, to learn that the distinction between Por qu? and porque is deeper than one being a question-former and the other not. Porque always means because, which, as a conjunction, is not even the same part of speech. Porque may begin a sentence if because begins its English equivalent, usually by way of opening an explanation. But it cannot begin all explanations. Longer ones, those having multiple clauses, start with como. But como also means, you recall from above, not how but as or like or even, as a verb, I eat. You might ask a historian of World War II Por qu? he believes that Hitler was not a vegetarian. e reply could be, como coma nudos de cerdo, no lo fue. Hes right; pigs knuckles do not grow on trees or vines. ...continued page 38 L A NGU AG E by Dwight Wayne CoopHow and Whythe of Sixty Zen columns now form a unique book, The Zen of Pues, useful to Spanish scholars at all levels.

34 Hola! Ciao! Guten Tag! Bon jour! Hello! e universal greeting of meeting another oers a unique and special introduc tion to Guatemala. La Antigua is such a wondrous and diverse place. You can sit on the square, enjoy an extraordinary cup of coee and hear languages from around the globe as you enjoy the beauty of the Parque Central and the stunning architec ture. It is a wonderful way to say hel lo to Guatemala and to yourself. roughout your journey into the heart of Guatemala you will dis cover the ease and ow of this sim ple greeting. Often you will be met with a buen da, buenas tardes or buenas noches, depending on the time of day. is simple custom is a courteous acknowl edgement and an invitation to engage and connect on many levels. While interactions are most likely a quick and friendly ex change, you will discover that there can be an inner opening that comes from the acknowl edgement. ere are those times when this opening becomes an op portunity to simply get to know someone, to experience their jour ney and expand your own horizons through the conversation.

35 shopping + services GU ATEM A L A CI T Y Recently, we were visiting a doc tor in Guatemala City. While the oce was lled to capacity, it was revealing to notice that everyone who entered turned and greeted those waiting with a smile and a buenos das. We simply observed and noticed the cordiality of this one small simple act. e acknowl edgement is a sign of respect. Much has been written about the power of a smile and the multitude of benets from human contact. And, within this one simple custom we have discovered a layer of wisdom that is ever present to reveal itself. e gift of remembering that we are humanwe are social creatures. In our fast-paced, techno world, we so often dive deep into our texting devices that we forget the beauty and the depth of sincere conversation. We have acclimated to text messag es and short emails as the norm for most. Allowing ourselves to adopt the attitude of acknowledging each other with hello oers the opening to a richer life experience. Whether you are on vacation or here for an extended period, you may want to consider taking advan tage of the diverse life experiences so many have to share. Some of those experiences will surprise you, some will delight you and some may startle you, yet they will all enrich you and forever expand your way of being. Saying hello to those we may not yet know helps make the world a more supportive environ ment for all. Allowing interaction and touch ing the humanity of ourselves and our fellow travelers is a rare oppor tunity. And, regardless of the lan guage you may speak, it all begins with hello!

Will Durant Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. G.K. Chesterton Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-condence. Robert Frostis como could as well equate with since as well as with because. Not since the adverb that marks elapsed time (Socrates wife has been nagging him since last March), but since the conjunction (Socrates wants to move out, since his wife nags him). You could start this latter declaration with como, but puesto que or it synomym ya que, are better. Reader, ya que compraste este libro, I hope you get your moneys worth. English contains a semantic overlap unrelated to Spanish, and this is that Why? and, How come? are eectively synonyms. You could ask my editors why I cannot write, or how come I cannot write. Or I could ask why or how come I am into major self-deprecation this month. All these questions, translated, could begin with Por qe? eir answers could begin with porque if they are short and sweet, but with como if they are truly explanatory. With that out of the way, how do we express how-ness when degree is in question? Here the construction is Qu tan? as in Qu tan enojado se puso Joey cuando no recibi su Happy Meal? e reply contains the inverse construction: Se puso tan enojado que rompi la nariz del encargado de turno (He was so angry that he broke the shift managers nose). is Qu tan? is not to be confused with another howish phrase, Qu tal? (How goes it?). But it is essential for anything that we can measure. What follows are examples that we could put to Joey after he grows up yet fails to reform. Qu tan amplia es tu cintura? (How big is your waist?) Qu tan pequea es tu celda? (How small is your prison cell?). Qu tan lejos queda tu audiencia? (How far o is your court date?) So you need this phrase even when giving specs to a carpenter. Just like my editor needed it to ask me how long this column would be: Tan larga como sea nesecario?

54 Shannon McCullough is a writer and co-owner of AntiguaCatering.com. He is currently writing a book on cooking and entertaining in Guatemala. by Shannon McCullough Food for Thought I recently returned from a longoverdue, 20-day journey to the United States. I spent the rst 10 days in my hometown of Los Angeles and the remainder of time at a family reunion at our family lakeside home in Priest Lake, Idaho. Los Angeles has changed immensely since I last lived there. I found it astonishing at the amount of fast food outlets that now line nearly every major street in Los Angeles. I would be bbing if I said I did not crave certain fast foods that do not exist here in Guatemala. In and Out Burger (for those of you from the East Coast, think Shake Shack) was my rst stop after being picked up from the airport. e meat is ground fresh daily, is never frozen and the french fries (or freedom fries for you Fox News viewers) are fresh cut to order and in a word are amazing. I hate to admit this but I also stopped one day while driving around town for an Arbys roast beef sandwich with horseradish cream. I loved them when I was young, but somehow they tasted less appealing than my fond memories. Fast food corporations make it so easy for todays hurried life style that even when you know better, you can lose all restraint. A French writer wrote, At least with American fast food you know you that are being poisoned and can act accordingly. It always makes me laugh. After two days I had had enough of drive-thru dining and came out of my self-induced fast food coma. I had come to Los Angeles to visit family and friends, go to the beach, go shopping and eat at the trendy new food spots that I have read about. First on my list of restaurants to visit was Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Millikes Border Grill Caf in Santa Monica. I worked for them in the early 1980s at the original Border Grill on Melrose Avenue. is was a time when a woman in a professional kitchen was still a rarity. Speaking of women in the kitchen, Jodie Foster was frequently hanging out in the kitchen, as she was dating one of the women who owned the place. Anyway there were always lines around the block to get in, and it was there that Susan and Mary Sue also became as famous as the celebrities who ocked in droves to the caf. is was the start of the upscale gourmet Mexican food scene in Los Angeles. e restaurant moved many years ago to Santa Monica for a much larger venue. It is a bit pricey, but if you do not mind paying $24 for a taco or $14 for a margarita, it is well worth the dinero. ankfully, they have joined the food truck craze that is sweeping Los Angeles. If your idea of chasing food trucks via twitter alerts on your iPhone around the Los Angeles basin sounds fun, look for the Border Grill Food Truck! ...continued on following page

56 You can purchase a carne asada taco or Baja sh tacos for under $6. Many posh restaurants have fallen in line with the food truck trend, and there is no need to beg your bank for higher over-draft protection to sample the overpriced entrees at their restaurants. Food crazes in North America have always been amusing to me. 2011 was the year of the cupcake, and food journalists declared 2012 the year of bacon, which was most unfortunate as bacon cupcakes somehow found their way into the market. Not to be outdone, the (former) queen of southern food, Paula Deen, introduced her version of a sloppy joe sandwich in between a Krispy Kreme doughnut. It seems the madness continues as Taco Bell has just introduced a national campaign for its new taco in a wae. Yes, a wae you would have for breakfast, as a taco. You cannot make this stu up! While in the States a friend who is in the hospitality business informed me that the current food buzz is foie gras ice cream or a daily cup of coee laced with a quarter stick of butter (from grass-fed cows) that promises more energy and longer life. I fear most of the unfortunate persons who are putting a quarter stick of butter into their coee on a daily basis will have died of a heart attack long before a class action lawsuit is brought before the company promoting such nonsense. After 10 fantastic days in Los Angeles I headed to Priest Lake; it is true Americana at its best. ere is not much to do there, but I suppose that is the point. e local market at the lake is so quaint it looks like a lm set. As I strolled around it, I had convinced myself that when I turned to walk down the next isle, I would stumble upon the likes of Diane Keaton lling her wicker basket with huckleberry preserves. Huckleberries are indigenous to northern Idaho and are sold in every imaginable form; preserves, pancake syrups, infused chocolate, freshchurned ice cream, assorted candies and huckleberry pies (at a mere cost of $20 per pie). My auntie, who taught my father to bake pies, was at the reunion, and my father was happy to demonstrate his pie-baking skills, which he had learned from her. He baked a delicious huckleberry pie. However, he did send his wife Beth out into the forest to pick the huckleberries. One night my father hosted a dinner for all the relatives in the local country caf that has been run by the same family for generations. e menu, as you would expect, was lled with what could only be described as comfort food, and each entre had enough calories to last you for a weekend. e standouts were chicken-fried steak, porterhouse steaks (at 32 ounces), meatloaf with biscuits and gravy, and baby back ribs with sweet baked beans. e family reunion only lasted for four days, and my dear sister had thought it would be fun to stay on an additional six days to enjoy the peace. I spent the following six days at the lake wondering why people nd it relaxing staring at trees in the forest, evidence that I am not much of a country boy. When I arrived home from the States, I realized how much I had missed Guatemala. As we drove from the airport following a Zeta gas truck onto the cobblestone streets of La Antigua Guatemala, I felt my kidneys begin to rattle to the sound of the Zeta gas trucks melody, Zeta, Zeta, Zeta Gas Ah home at last. Priest Lake ( ) 2011 was the year of the cupcake, and food journalists declared 2012 the year of bacon, which was most unfortunate as bacon cupcakes somehow found their way into the market.

64 e team at Recycled Roots workshop Shopping at the mercado in La Antigua Guatemala is by far my absolute favorite thing about living in Guatemala. As you enter the market, you are sur rounded by the bustle of people, ven dors yelling aproveche as they bring attention to their deal of the day, and then the most magnicent part of allthe abundance of fruit and veg etables. e color alone is enough to dazzle, but I was most impressed by the avocados. I love avocados! Avocados have in credible health benets and make a great addition to salads, sandwiches and smoothies, and of course it is the main ingredient of guacamole. But did you know that avocados are also an amazing beauty elixir? Avocado oil is a humectant, which means it draws moisture, which is especially good for hair and skin, and its emol lient qualities soothe and soften. Avocados contain a healthy variety of amino acids, saturated fatty acids and lip ids. is is what makes this fruit the perfect candidate for hair and skin care. On your next trip to the market pick up a ripe avocado and see the benets for yourself with this deep conditioning your hair and skin. Follow these simple steps: 1 ripe avocado mashed 1 egg yolk 1/2 tbsp. macadamia nut oil Combine all ingredients in a bowl and apply to dry hair. Allow to sit for 30 minutes, rinse, then shampoo and condition as normal. Your hair will denitely feel more manageable, softer and shinier. Any remaining mix ture can be used for your face. BE AUT Y by Melissa Collinsdded elights of the agnicent vocado Melissa Collins is the owner and operator of Golden Studio in La Antigua. info@goldenstudioantigua.comApply and leave on for 15 minutes then rinse o with warm water. Your skin will love it! Avocados are perishable so be sure to use as soon as you make it. Whether you enjoy your avocados in a salad or on your hair or skin, the benets speak for themselves. Add ing them to your life can only bring better health inside and out.

You can also nd vultures pictured in Mayan hieroglyphic writing, such as those at the Copn ruins in Honduras. ere are two kinds of vultures, those of the Old World and those of the New. Old World and New World vultures arent actually closely related; similarities between them are purely due to their eating habits. Four species of vultures are distributed throughout Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Mexico, El Salvador and Nicaragua: Cathartes aura, turkey vulture; Cathartes burrovianus lesser yellow-headed vulture; Coragyps atratus, black vulture; and the Sarcoramplhus papa, king vulture. e bald head of a vulture or a buzzard is an adaptation to its carrion diet. e lack of feathers protects them from infections that could be caused by decaying esh remains trapped in the feathers. e American black vulture, buzzard or black-headed vulture (Coragyps atratus) is the only species of the genera Coragyps.

70 King vulture ( )king vulture, being mostly white, is much easier to photograph. Although the Maya also depict water birds, hummingbirds and macaws, the vulture is relatively well documented in Mayan epigraphy and iconography. ere are many Mayan cultures whose local folklore includes vultures as major actors in the local stories. Although these are birds are not as colorful as a macaw, as graceful as a hummingbird, or as majestic as an eagleand denitely not as tasty as a duckvultures are a component of Mayan art, cosmology and folklore. We hope this article has, at least a bit, changed your view of these birds. Lacking the syrinxthe vocal organ of birdsthe only sounds the vulture emits are grunts or a lowfrequency hiss. ese birds lay their eggs in caves, hollow trees or just on the ground. Vultures usually have two broods a year and feed their young by regurgitation. Vultures should never, ever be killed or disturbed since they serve a useful service to nature (and humans) by cleaning up rotting carcasses. In the United States, the vulture receives legal protection under the Migratory Bird Act of 1918. I nd all vultures photogenic because they are so dark; it is a challenge to get acceptable lighting. e placesmundane and exotic. At the Parque Nacional Tikal (El Petn, Guatemala), for example, vultures have become accustomed to tourists and feed on sandwiches and other morsels left by visitors in the Great Plaza area. Of course vulture sightings are also common along the highways where they feed on road kill and at garbage dumps near cities and towns. ey also gather along rivers where shermen discard unwanted catches; the Ro Pasion near Sayaxche, Petn, is a great vulture-watching spot. e king vulture is the most impressive of these creatures but is so rare that you are likely to see it only in a zoo.Vultures cont. from page 68

Is this a bad thing to do for their health because the fat is saturated? Answer: In general, dogs and cats have more good cholesterol than bad cholesterol in their bodies, no matter what types of fat they eat. ey can consume saturated and unsaturated fats without the risk of clogged arteries, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease or strokes. Unsaturated fats are necessary for growth, development, reproduction and healthy skin. And saturated fats improve palatability and promote the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. e obvious exception is the quantity of fat. A lot of fat, given all at once, could cause vomiting and acute pancreatitis. Fat, given on a regular basis, can promote obesity. For a cat, a square inch of chicken skin would be ne, but if he gets into the garbage and eats all of the chicken skin, you could have a very serious problem requiring immediate medical attention.

82 I hope to use my craft to improve the lives of my family and my village and give my children a chance to get ahead, explains potter Felipe Perz. Cermicas de Atitln is an artisan group run by two brothers in a small town on the edge of Lake Atitln. Felipe and Francisco Perz were trained at a young age by the famous Ken Edwards and since have built a business around their craft. Edwards is credited with inventing a form of stoneware ceramics that combines various techniques: the famous Tonol hand-painted decorations, ancient Chinese technology of reduction-red celadon stoneware and Edwards original designs. Edwards is from Kansas City, Missouri, and moved to Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1959 after receiving his degree in sculpture and ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute. He developed his stoneware ceramics technique in Guadalajara and later moved to Guatemala. Upon arriving in Guatemala in the 1990s, Edwards settled in a tiny, very poor lakeside town. e Perz brothers became friends with Edwards, helping him settle in to the community and doing various tasks around his house and workshop. Eventually, after much prodding by the Perz brothers, Edwards decided to teach the boys how to make this style of ceramics. My rst piece was a plate that I made without a mold. It was not very good and broke easily, Francisco Perz recalled. However, after practicing and learning how to use the mold and work with the clay, I learned how to make quality pieces that people can use in their homes for years. ...continued on following page text photos by Hilary KilpatricGuatemalan ARTISANS Cermicas de Atitln

Starting in the 1960s the Guatemalan government oered land in Petn to any citizen willing to settle on it and pay a fee of $25. A road was opened up to Flores, although it was unpaved, and the notorious bus trip to Flores was known to take up to 24 hours to travel the 300 miles. Small airports were built at Flores and Tikal, bringing tourists to the region. In the early 1970s a road was opened from Tikal to Belize. The rst paved road in Petn was built in 1982.

105really have become amazing community leaders, said Dunning. e girls success illustrates AGALIs core mission: empowering adolescent girls to be their own advocates. Our whole model is nding the leaders in-country who are doing really great work and then helping them to take their impact to the next level by expanding their scale, said Dunning. Weve seen organizations go from having an educational program for 50 girls to advocating for laws that improve education for millions of girls. By partnering with in-country experts instead of trying to do it all themselves, AGALIs small sta of four women has been able to achieve extraordinary results in Malawi, Liberia, Ethiopia, Honduras, and Guatemala. For example, AGALI partners have virtually ended child marriages in one region of Malawi, successfully advocated for a national childrens law in Liberia, and created and pushed through a national policy in Guatemala requiring special attention for adolescent girl survivors of abuse. With Poder!, Dunning hopes that global audiences will grasp the power of girl-led advocacy and the need to invest in it. Investing in girls leadership will not only transform girls lives, but also their communities, countries, and the world, she said. I hope the audience will nd this a fun lm and be inspired by it, and then let that inspiration drive them to learn more, Russell added. Entertainment is powerful. When it can be socially responsible and educational, it can be magic. This lm is not about victims; it is a lm about victory. AGALI Film cont. from page 18 Elba Velzquez and Emelin Cabrera, Guatemalan girl leaders shooting a scene from PODER! with the lmmaker Lisa Russell and AGALI Fellow Juany Garca Perez. :

107each tastes and peach tones are challenging to nd in Guatemala, but its worth taking the challenge and seeing what you can discover. Peach tonesthose orangy, red dish, yellowish, pale shades that decorators likearent around gardens or weavings as are so many brighter colors. Luscious peach fruit and juice are in our markets, but not all that com mon, which is a little strange, as Spanish explorers brought the peach here two centuries before the fruit reached northern Europe and North America. In the Guatemala Highlands and even in Guatemala City, farmers and homes rich and poor often have a peach tree or two in the yard. e fruit can be ripe any month, and peaches in local markets are usually tree-ripened. eyre not as perfect-looking as commercial varieties sold in other countries supermarkets, but so much richer in taste. Seek out melocotones when youre shopping, and youll be rewarded by their great avor and aroma. When peaches nally did get to France and England, they were popular additions to fruit bowls for art students to recreate in oils. Same here. From Spanish Colo nial days to now, youll nd bud ding artists practicing with oils and watercolors, trying to catch the complicated blend of tones of a peach. In big and small homes, you might nd a fruit bowl com position on a wall, done by an an cestor decades ago when he or she was in school, copying the Old Masters from Europe. Sure, there are peach-tone owers around, especially some bougainvillea spilling over walls, though not as often as red and purple vines. Check out the ower markets, and among the stronger tones youll nd peach roses, lil ies, fuchsia and dainty little freesia with their heady odor. To capture the absolute best peach shades in this country, how ever, youve got to get outside at the right timeto see peach spread across the sky for a few mo ments at dawn, or lingering a little longer at sunset, or spilling down the ank of a volcano blended with the ery reds and yellows of the lava. Peach in the skies doesnt last long, but youll never forget when you do see heavenly peaches in Guatemala. Peach SE N S UOU S GU ATEMALA by Ken Veronda
