Mayas of Today


The groups speaking languages belonging to Maya stock still live in villages in the era where their ancestors created their high culture.

They have different economic, social, religious and cultural patterns, which at the same time share some common traits.

Their religion combines pre-Hispanic and Roman Catholic beliefs; they worship the gods of nature and perform rituals to control weather and for curing sickness, which are directed by specialists in the supernatural.

They venerate the saints and celebrate certain saint's days of Catholic calendar.

They, also, preserve both pre-Hispanic and Colonial elements in their political and religious organizations through elaborate system of positions for serving the community.

They live in settlements apart from the village proper with its church and municipal offices at the center, in houses in the surrounding areas.
