Yucatec Maya Exhibit Opens

Two new exhibits about Maya life are open for viewing at Milne Library through March 7, 2007.

“Maya Portraits: Poverty and Community Transformation, Cobá, Quintana Roo, México” and “Yucatec Maya Huipiles | Vestidos de los Indígenas” seek to raise awareness of the lives, rural poverty and community transformation among Yucatec Maya women. Photographs, sculptural carvings, and other artifacts portray the activities in a small village in Quintana Roo, Mexico. This is based on Dr. Ellen Kintz’s fieldwork and development work in the village since 1982.

The displays are sponsored by the College’s Anthropology department and Milne Library. For more information, please contact kintz@geneseo.edu or paradis@geneseo.edu.
