ICDO’s ‘Kalan Je La’an:
Following the Maya Voice’ - Phase I
The ICDO team joined close to a hundred of UIMQRoo Maya students and professors as they embarked on the procession. The participants wore their sacred colors, performed ritual music and dance, and shared the spiritual part of their culture with the ICDO team. The ceremony took place around the sacred Ya’ache tree, an ancient symbol of life on Earth in the Maya culture, where each one of us marked the beginning of something new by planting seeds in the ground.
