Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
in Santiago Sacatepequez, most residents are indigenous Mayans from the kakchiquel community, where weaving on backstrap looms is a venerable tradition. But decades of genocidal war, racial discrimination, and economic dislocation has broken the tradition for many. A local weaving school has given over 1,500 women the chance to learn what their mothers could not teach them and recover their history, identity, and cultural pride.  Ilda Coralia Mecur Yucute is a student in the weaving class; her two children play in the room (the daughter's name is Emily). Martha Julia is a former student and now an instructor at the weaving school in Santiago Sacatepequez.
