Ch´orti´-Maya Survival in Eastern Guatemala: Indigeneity in Transition - new book

2006, ISBN: 9780826338808

ID: 734645862

Scholars and Guatemalans have characterized eastern Guatemala as ´´Ladino´´ or non-Indian. The Ch´orti´ do not exhibit the obvious indigenous markers found among the Mayas of western Guatemala, Chiapas, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Few still speak Ch´orti´, most no longer wear distinctive dress, and most community organizations have long been abandoned. During the colonial period, the Ch´orti´ region was adjacent to relatively vibrant economic regions of Central America that included major trade routes, mines, and dye plantations. In the twentieth century Ch´orti´s directly experienced U.S.-backed dictatorships, a 36-year civil war from start to finish, and Christian evangelization campaigns, all while their population has increased exponentially. These have had tremendous impacts on Ch´orti´ identities and cultures. From 1991 to 1993, Brent Metz lived in three Ch´orti´ Maya-speaking communities, learning the language, conducting household surveys, and interviewing informants. He found Ch´orti´s to be ashamed of their indigeneity, and he was fortunate to be present and involved when many Ch´orti´s joined the Maya Movement. He has continued to expand his ethnographic research of the Ch´orti´ annually ever since and has witnessed how Ch´orti´s are reformulating their history and identity.
