Who are the Mayas?, Where are they?, What they did that makes
them so special?
Actually the modern Mayas are a blend of different cultures that do still have strong roots in the past, they do not build big rock temples anymore or perform human sacrifices, however they do have a very rich spiritual life and a different way of see things.
The modern Mayan people also keeps a strong textile history alive, their textiles and designs are incredibly colorful and complex, the Ixchel museum in Guatemala city is a bless of information and their collection is among the best in the world.
