PRE-COLUMBIAN ARCHITECTURE OF MESOAMERICA

Architectural criticism has nearly always been concerned with the visible aspect of individual buildings, taking this to be the decisive factor in the formulation of valuejudgments and in the classification of those "styles" which appear in textbooks, and which have thus become common knowledge. But once it is recognized that every building is, by definition, a work subject to the limitations imposed by the materials and building techniques at hand, and that every building must prove its stability, as well as its capacity to endure and serve the needs it was  builtfor, it becomes clear that the aesthetic aspect alone is inadequate when we come to appraise a creative activity, dijficult enough to judge in the past, rapidly becoming more complex in our own day, and destined to become more so in the foreseeable future.

Reconciliation and Self-organization through Q’anjob’al Maya Divination

Benjamin N. Colby (together with his ex-wife L. Colby) is the author of “The Daykeeper. The Life and Discourse of an Ixil Diviner” whose excellent and exemplary ethnographic work and publication on divination among the Ixil Maya inspired and motivated me.

Itzá Maya Texts With a Grammatical Overview

This research was supported in part by a Fulbright Fellowship (1979-80) and a University of Kentucky Summer Faculty Research Fellowship (1988), for which I am grateful. I thank the many people of San José, Petén, who assisted me in this work, especially don Fernando Tesucún, don Julian Tesucún, and don Domingo Chayax Suntecún. Don Fernando Tesucún has been a wonderful teacher and friend throughout, and I owe him a special thanks. I am also grateful to Helen Crawford for her assistance in preparing the manuscript, and to Munro S. Edmonson and an anonymous reader for helpful comments. It has been a pleasure to work with the University of Utah Press and I am grateful to its past director, David Catron, and current director, Nana Anderson, for their support.

The Dresden Codex,

The Dresden Codex, as it appears in the Lord Kingsborough edition, differs somewhat from the Förstemann in the numbering of the pages. The pages that follow are arranged as they appear in the Kingsborough with the Förstemann page numbers noted. Although the artist Agostino Aglio followed the original codex with great precision, there are subtle differences in the rendering of some of the glyphs and figures.

Ritual Techniques of Distributed Cognition in the Guatemalan Highlands

The pursuit of a doctorate—especially in a field as broad and engaging as  cognitive anthropology—is marked by moments of excitement, discovery, and  communitas, but I have to admit often feeling abandonado while walking this path. The discipline requires this, I think, and gains from it. And while it may be true that solitude
can lead to insights of, I dare say, a spiritual nature, it can just as often lead one to the edge of an abyss. And as Nietzsche taught: “…when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you” (1989). Thankfully, I had a generous and wise advisor, Steve Parish, who no matter what the funding institutions or others thought of my work, stood by me and ladled out praise just when I thought I might fall while peering downward.

DEITIES OF THE ANCIENT MAYA

The workshop was inspired by the work of my graduate adviser, Dr. Karl A. Taube, and as such, the workshop guide is a   simplified version of his 1992 publication “The Major Gods of   Ancient Yucatan,” the great majority of which has proven to  stand the test of time. From his many seminars and hours of    advising, I hope to have presented as accurately as I can, at  least based on the current state of scholarly knowledge, the variety and multitude of the supernatural beings or deities  that the ancient Maya peoples lived with and venerated. I          would like to thank Dr. Taube for supporting me in the production of the workbook including his valuable comments. Thanks also go to Dr. Christophe Helmke for providing me with extensive comments for this revised guide.

RELACION DE LAS COSAS DE YUCATAN

Que Yucatán no es isla ni punta que entra en el mar como algunos pensaron, sino tierra firme y que se engañaron por la punta de Cotoch que hace el mar entrando por la bahía de la Ascensión hacia Golfo Dulce, y por la punta que por esta otra parte, hacia México, hace la Desconocida antes de llegar a Campeche, o por el extendimiento de las lagunas que hace el mar entrando por Puerto Real y Dos Bocas. Que es tierra muy llana y limpia de sierras, y que por esto no se descubre desde los navíos (sino) hasta muy cerca (de la costa), salvo entre Campeche y Champotón donde se miran unas serrezetas y un Morro de ellas que llaman de los diablos. Que viniendo de Veracruz por parte de la punta de Catoche (Yucatán), está en menos de 20 grados, y por la boca de Puerto Real en más de 23, y que bien tiene de un cabo al otro 130 leguas de largo (en) camino derecho. Que

CULTO AL MAÍZ EN GUATEMALA Y PSICOLOGÍA DEL INDÍGENA COLOTECO

Escribir un libro no es un acto fortuito. No. Además de
las condiciones intelectuales que precisa el autor para crear su obra —que de por sí es condición psicobiológica— se necesita de un largo y profundo estudio sobre el asunto. Un libro no se improvisa. Con ello quiero decir que mi interés por el culto al maíz en Guatemala no es reciente. Data de muchos años atrás, de una época en que lo indígena era material humano desconocido, explorado tan sólo por unos pocos intelectuales y artistas; que a grosso modo podemos situar hasta el gobierno de Ubico. Con la Revolución de octubre de 1944 y el gobierno de Arévalo se inició la exploración del mundo indígena con la fundación del Instituto Indigenista Nacional en 1945. Son prueba de mis afanes por el conocimiento y superación del indígena, varios trabajos publicados al respecto y que, como considero natural, no son conocidos, salvo quizáporunospocos especializados
en el asunto.

Maya Graphic Pluralism and Indigenous Elite Strategies for Survival in Colonial Yucatan

This paper offers a revisionist viewpoint on the nature of colonial Maya literacy, showing that the colonial Yucatec Maya elite utilized both the traditional hieroglyphic script and the new alphabetic writing skills taught by the Franciscan friars. By adapting and utilizing both styles of writing, the colonial Maya elite created a system of graphic pluralism that enabled the Maya nobility to better defend their elite interests in a manner consistent with both pre-Columbian and colonial forms of writing, address, religion, and government administration
