Cloth holds great importance for Guatemala’s indigenous communities, and traditional dress plays an essential role in Maya identity today as a vital link to an ancestral past and a means of cultural reinvention. Through a range of perspectives reflecting on Maya identity and global influences in Guatemala, this illustrated publication traces a century of change as well as the remarkable continuity of ancient Maya traditions in the face of modernization, political upheaval, and religious transformation. Essays by Andrea Aragon, Veronica Riedel, Ann Pollard Rowe, Roxane Shaughnessy, and Donna E. Stewart.
