Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.9in. x 0.6in.As cultural mediators, Chamelcos market women offer a model of contemporary Qeqchi identity grounded in the strength of the Maya historical legacy. Guatemalas Maya communities have faced nearly five hundred years of constant challenges to their culture, from colonial oppression to the instability of violent military dictatorships and the advent of new global technologies. In spite of this history, the people of San Juan Chamelco, Guatemala, have effectively resisted significant changes to their cultural identities. Chamelco residents embrace new technologies, ideas, and resources to strengthen their indigenous identities and maintain Maya practice in the 21st century, a resilience that sets Chamelco apart from other Maya towns. Unlike the regions other indigenous women, Chamelcos Qeqchi market women achieve both prominence and visibility as vendors, dominating social domains from religion to local politics. These women honor their families legacies through continuation of the inherited, high-status marketing trade. In Maya Market Women, S. Ashley Kistler describes how market women gain social standing as mediators of sometimes conflicting realities, harnessing the forces of global capitalism to revitalize Chamelcos indigenous identity.
