Description


Beautiful and haunting, the images in this photographic chronicle represent 10 years among the Lacandon Mayans in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. What results is an intimate portrait that illuminates the very essence of the Hach Winik, or “Real People,” a tribe struggling to preserve their culture as the modern world encroaches. Also included is the short story “Pastor Dowe at Tacaté,” by Paul Bowles, which describes the experiences of an American missionary in a small Lacandon town.
