Maya Exhibit in San Antonio – May 14 – September 5, 2016

Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed is the largest traveling exhibition about the Maya ever to be toured in the United States.  Maya uses a combination of authentic artifacts along with multimedia and interactive, hands-on activities to reveal our deep ties to this astonishing civilization.

“The Witte is breaking the mold with the Mays Family Center, and it is only fitting to have this world-class exhibition open San Antonio’s new cultural gem,” says Marise McDermott, President and CEO of the Witte Museum. “Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed beautifully represents the impact the Maya had on the world we live in today. The exhibition is immersive, so that entire families can experience the way Mayans lived, learning their calendars, mathematics, and cosmology through interactive opportunities. The exhibition is massive, the largest ever at the Witte, so we recommend scheduling a longer than average time to enjoy the exhibition, demonstrations and programs.”

Exhibition Highlights

  • 230 artifacts
  • 27 unique interactives
  • 7 different environments
  • In English and Spanish

Welcome, Bienvenidos, Chaab’il Kulunik

Mayaglot is a weblog devoted to ideas and developments in modern Mayan language, education, and culture. I am interested in how the Mayan linguistic communities of today are adapting their languages to the modern world. I have a particular interest in the Q’eqchi’ Mayan linguistic community since that is the one with which I am most familiar, but reflections on developments in other other Mayan languages are also welcome.

I plan to post occasionally based on my own readings and research and welcome thoughtful contributions and the participation of people with affiliated interests, whether they be academic or amateur in nature.
