Katun Celebration

Sunday, July 3, 2016

Twenty years ago, a full Katun, launched the establishment of the boundaries of the El Pilar Archaeological Reserve for Maya Flora and Fauna. The theme of the new archaeological reserve would be the Maya Forest featuring Archaeology under the Canopy, engaging the local community in their own resources and their own history. We had a host of support from businesses with funding, with the lunch buffet, beer and herbal teas, with security and oversight, transport, chairs, tables, and tents, and set up with the El Pilar team with their donated green T shirts! Everyone threw in their weight in the arrival organization, the décor and set up, the direction and reception, and overall good cheer.
