Maria Cuc Jiatz is a Maya Kakchikel indigenous woman from Solola, Guatemala. She learned to weave on a back-strap loom when she was 10. Maria is proficient at weaving the complex and labor intensive “ikat” technique that is the trademark of Sololá weaving. Maria founded Maya Color to preserve Mayan traditional weaving arts, culture and folk art. Her daughter Ingrid also gives an introduction to Guatemala and Mayan culture, the current status of traditional weavings and indigenous rights of collective intellectual property. This program is one of our many events celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
