The past and future of the Usumacinta River watershed was the theme of the Maya Meetings, held last week in Austin Texas. For three members of the Rios Mayas organization (Ron Canter, Chris Shaw, and Dave Pentecost), it was a privilege to come and present what we have learned over the last few years, and to find new support for the campaign to protect the river from a hydroelectric dam and other threats.
I will post a selection of information, reports, maps, and video here for quick reference. Welcome to all Maya Meeting folks, and people coming here by way of the FAMSI website, which has offered its support to the work.
