DigVentures Dig Nation Festival 2020




Members of the Tihosuco Heritage Preservation and Community Development Project participated in a two-day global archaeology festival to share our work with the world!


The Caste War of Yucatan (also known as the Maya Social War) is generally acknowledged as the longest and most successful indigenous rebellion in Latin American history. Tihosuco, a small town in southern Mexico with a long colonial history, was abandoned during this 60-year war, eventually being re-settled once more in the 1930s. In this talk, the team reveals how the project has been exploring the rich and diverse local culture and the evolving Maya identity, in the hopes of contributing to Tihosuco’s future.
