They decided to get their education, return to their communities,, and improve their art skills so they can present the genuine Maya culture in the best way possible. As they said, Maya heritage, culture and language is part of them, their past, present and future.
Elián from the Felipe Carrillo Puerto community, Jose from the Becanchen Yul community Juan Angel from José María Morelos community and Cynthia from Chetumal community are four brilliant young people who are studying art at UIMQRoo.
“The ancient Maya culture is not extinct. Mexico still does not know how rich it is in culture and that is why the other countries and cultures are given more value than our own. The world needs to see the greatness of Mexico’s multiculturalism. We need more art; we need to feel alive.”
