I am a Mopan Mayan woman with a Masters in Rural Development from Sussex University, England and a Bachelors in Anthropology from Trinity University, Texas. As the co-director of the African and Maya History Program under the Ministry of Education, I trained teachers across Belize in cultural education. As the Director of the Institute of Social and Cultural Research, I coordinated national campaigns to deepen the public's understanding and appreciation of these communities. Before taking the helm at the Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management, Belize's only Maya community environmental organization, I managed the Tumul K'in Center of Learning, a Mayan specific cultural school. I am the author of the Report on the Main Barriers and Constraints to Q’eqchi Women’s Participation in Economic Activity in Toledo. I hope this network will inform SATIIM's work in indigenous land tenure and natural resource management.
