Maya Pastoral 2004-2005 Book

The book PASTORAL MAYA was produced in collaboration with the Pastoral Maya leadership, students, and faculty. About one third of the book contains the proceedings from the national Maya conferences held in 2004 and 2005, and contains detail about many topics including the discussions and plans of the national leadership. The rest of the book includes various essays written with the goal to inform Maya leaders on topics such as education, women, capacity building, and Maya history. Also included is an insightful interview given by the president of Pastoral Maya, and an essay written by one of the leaders on whether or not leaving home is “worth it”. The book has 236 pages, all material is in English and in Spanish. The book was published by Kennesaw State University Press, and is currently out of print. We plan to have this book online in the near future.
