Women between 14 to 24-years-old are the most-vulnerable group. According to experts, these offenses have nothing to do with specific situations but with the culture of domination and oppression where men feel they can impose their will on women. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/guatemala-culture-must-change-in-order-to-stop-violence-against-women/

They are the descendants of West African slaves shipwrecked on St Vincent, who interbred with the local Carib and Arawak people. When the British took over St Vincent from the French, they exiled the Garifuna. The Garifuna now populate the Belize, Guatemalan and Honduras Caribbean Coast. I speak with Diana about Guifitti, a medicinal alcoholic tonic made up of sixteen different herbal roots. It is believed to be a 'cure all'. I also show you the 'ghost hotel' I am staying in that is currently being renovated. As repairs are under way, I'm one of the few guests.

Agricultural exports contribute to about 75 percent of Guatemala’s export earnings. Demographics: Guatemala’s population is about 16.95 million people as of May 4, 2017. The population is approximately 47% latino, 47% indigena, 5% garifuna and 1% other. Spanish is the main language, among many others, and Mayan Spirituality, Catholicism, and Evangelical Christianity are the main religions. Food: Common foods in Guatemala include tortillas and tamales, black beans and rice, and wheat in the form of pasta and bread. Guatemalan food is traditionally made in the home, and going to restaurants to eat is not very common. Holidays: The Guatemalan calendar is determined by the Roman Catholic Church. Because of this, their most important holidays include Christmas, Advent, Easter, and Three Kings Day. Other holidays include the Day of the Dead, which celebrates family members who have passed away, Revolution Day, which remembers the day Jorge Ubico was overthrown in 1944, and New Year’s Day, which they celebrate by wearing a new outfit. Hobbies: In Guatemala, there are many things you can do fill your free time. You can enjoy sports, weave clothing and fabric, and dance. Most Guatemalans hand weave textiles, either to sell or making into clothing. Popular recreational activities include soccer, white-water rafting, spelunking, rock climbing, and kayaking. Popular dances include Cumbia and Punta. Current Events: Today, Guatemala has recently endured some political troubles. In 2015, their President, Otto Pérez Molina was discovered to be heading a corruption ring. Their former vice president who had resigned not long before was arrested and over 14 cabinet members resigned. After its recent problems, Guatemala is back on its feet.

Their rainforest cities were abandoned centuries ago, but Maya people continue to thrive in the Guatemalan highlands, where traditions and religious rituals, mingled with Catholic practices, endure to form the richest and most distinctive indigenous identity in the hemisphere. Guatemala today is very much a synthesis of Maya and colonial traditions, fused with the omnipresent influences of twenty-first century Latin and North American culture. Baroque churches dating back to the Spanish Conquest coexist with pagan temples that have been sites of worship for millennia. Highland street markets prosper alongside vast glitzy shopping malls, and pre-Columbian festival dances are performed by teenage hip-hop fans.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Quetzal is the currency of Guatemala and also the national bird, it is a fragile and rare animal. The bird´s tail feather was used as a form of currency back in the Maya Empire. 2. Atitlán means ‘at the water’ in Aztec language and is a lake in the nothern Guatemala highlands. It is the deepest lake in Central America and is considered as “the most beautiful lake in the world” by several explorers like Aldous Huxley. Atitlán is also surrounded by 3 conical volcanoes, making it a must to visit place. 3. Chichi or Chichicastenango is the no.1 shopping destination of whole Guatemala, it is located between 2 and 3 hours southwest of Guatemala City. Chichicastenango (also called Chichi) is considered to be home to the brightest probably most vibrant native market in Central America. You can find there a lot of things like local fabrics, clothing, pottery, wood crafted items or even fireworks, there is something for everyone. This City also hosts many festivals. 4. On May 30, 2010, an enormous hole, 60 feet wide and 30 stories deep, opened up in the middle of Guatemala City, swallowing a three-story building and a home. It also caused the death of a man. The reason for the formation of the sinkhole is thought to be the weak material the city is built on – volcano pumice. This was only 3 years after another sinkhole formed in Guatemala City, in 2007. 5. Much of Guatemala’s history has been marked by violence. For 36 years, the country was embattled in a civil war that took the lives of more than 200,000 people. The war brought about mass murders and resulted in millions of people being run off of their land. Guatemala’s civil war ended in December 1996, but the war scars still remain. Violence and intimidation are major problems in private life and in politics too. 6. 21 varieties of Mayan languages are spoken in Guatemala by mainly the rural population. Indigenous languages of Guatemala include Xinca and Garifuna, spoken by populations restricted to the coast. It is usual for native language speakers to have knowledge of either Spanish or other national languages beside their mother tongue. Efforts to preserve ancient Mayan literature and scripts are undertaken to know more about the history of the country. 7. The first chocolate bar was discovered during the Mayan civilization in Guatemala (Thank Mayan gods for that!). Mayans used to worship the cacao tree as they believed it to be sacred. The aphrodisiac properties of cocoa were well known and it was often consumed in the form of a drink. The Mayans used to pray to a deity called Ek Chuah, who symbolized the cacao tree. However, chocolate was usually consumed in its bitter form with the occasional use of chilli. Chocolate is widely consumed in Guatemala even today with a chocolate museum in the city of Antigua. And cocoa is still sacred in Guatemala with cocoa shops, confectioneries and breweries present in almost all the developed cities.

The countries selected for this series are ones that I have traveled to or are the homeland of a person with whom I am acquainted with, or both. Some of the topics that are discussed to help learn about culture are: i. Art ii. Music iii. Dance iv. Politics/government v. Language vi. Money vii. Food b. Each lesson involves a brief history of the country and a printout that invites the learner to consider lessons that can be learned from that country’s history. Most of the lessons involve a recipe to make a meal common to that area. (because food says a lot about a culture and is really fun to make!)

Here it is! I'm so thrilled to release this Guatemala Travel Guide, and share Albion Fit's top places (& secrets) to visit! This trip was not only an adventure, but so incredibly inspiring. To be there alongside the owners of Albion Fit (who are an absolute HOOT), and see where so much of their inspiration comes from was seriously so cool. I'm convinced that Guatemala is one of the worlds best kept secrets with it's endless beauty, and welcoming culture. We had the pleasure of meeting the talented Albion Fit team, who make the visions become a reality, and to be honest, it was one of my highlights of the trip! To see the process and hard work that goes into each swimsuit and piece of apparel we had been wearing, was mind blowing. Everything was cut and sewn with such precision and care. If you're in the mood for an inspiring entrepreneur story, you gotta listen to theirs -- you will be blown away! Other than that, my favorite places were the waterfall hot spring (Finea El Paraiso) because it was beautiful and had HOT WATER streaming down the falls! Like, is this real life!? AND the adventure hike we did at 4am to the Tikal Mayan Ruins. Can you believe the sound of those howler monkeys!? They sound like dinosaurs of some sort. It was seriously such a thrill, and so beautiful when the sun came up. No wonder they shot Star Wars there (By the way, have you seen the new one? Call me a geek, but I lovedddd it.). Another one of my highlights was being there with my sister and brother-in-law, they motivated me to get out and exercise and it was actually super fun. We were running through little groups of school kids and trying to not get hit by busses in Antigua! Ha! Working out is something I rarely do on vacation, and I'm making it a must from now on.

To donate to this photo book and cultural preservation project, please visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/585522303/qeqchi-maya-photo-project-guatemala-a-photo-book The Project: The photo book will be an 11x14 inch format book (The soft cover will be the largest landscape format book that can still have integrity-the same size or smaller than 11x14 inches). The layout will be photographs of Q'eqchi's working, their portraits, and any moving images accompanied by short interviews with the people. Occasional landscapes will appear to provide a context. Above and to the right you will see their original words in Q'eqchi' and below you will have their English translation. Any stories pertinent to explain who the Q'eqchi' people are will be included. This book would be perfect for any coffee table or waiting room. It will be a somewhat simple read with the focal aspect being the photographs. My name is Tayler and I speak Q'eqchi'. I spent two years in the Polochic Valley of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala teaching, lending service, and learning the language. The people of the Polochic Valley speak Q'eqchi', a Mayan language, with only 800,000 native speakers worldwide. Being there changed my life forever. All of the photos you see in the video were taken with a point and shoot camera while I was there. This time I will have my full frame DSLR. Not only is the region mind-bogglingly beautiful, the people are incredible. They are some of the most humble, meek, loving, and peaceful people I have ever met. Their generosity would leave me reeling. Even if they had no food for themselves they would insist on feeding me dinner. My perspectives regarding wealth and the material were forever altered. Despite their living in reed-walled homes with tin roofs, they were the happiest people I have yet to meet. There was always a smile, always a joke. Everybody talked to everybody ESPECIALLY if you were a stranger-and believe me, at 6'3", blond and very white-I was definitely a stranger. Being of Mayan descent, the cultural heritage of the Q'eqchi' people is very rich. I want to show it to you. In picture and in word I will bring the images of these amazing people to you accompanied by their perspectives and thoughts. They changed how I think, they can do they same for you. Recently the country of Guatemala has completed a paved road into the remote valley in which these people live. The majority of the Q'eqchi's do not know any Spanish. With the road completed, access to the valley has become easier thus bringing in outside culture more easily. Albeit advantageous to learn Spanish for these humble people, I fear that their culture will soon be diluted. Time is running out to capture the true essence of the Q'eqchi' Mayans. Help me immortalize at least a portion of their legacy. Challenges exist in any endeavor. I have felt for some time now that I should compile images of these incredible people. While learning Q'eqchi' I faced some pretty overwhelming circumstances. They didn't stop me. I am now fluent in the language and I am a better person because of it. I view this project as an extension of my original experience in Guatemala. I am determined. Nothing will stop this project from happening :)

According to forensic authorities in Guatemala, more than 56 sex offenders have been identified in the past two years, some of them serial in nature. Women between 14 to 24-years-old are the most-vulnerable group. According to experts, these offenses have nothing to do with specific situations but with the culture of domination and oppression where men feel they can impose their will on women. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/guatemala-culture-must-change-in-order-to-stop-violence-against-women/

Exploring the Guatemalan Port City of Livingston. I meet up with Diana from Antojitos Los Tres Garifunas. The Garifuna's are one of five cultural groups in Livingston. They are the descendants of West African slaves shipwrecked on St Vincent, who interbred with the local Carib and Arawak people. When the British took over St Vincent from the French, they exiled the Garifuna. The Garifuna now populate the Belize, Guatemalan and Honduras Caribbean Coast. I speak with Diana about Guifitti, a medicinal alcoholic tonic made up of sixteen different herbal roots. It is believed to be a 'cure all'. I also show you the 'ghost hotel' I am staying in that is currently being renovated. As repairs are under way, I'm one of the few guests.
