On Saturday June 21st the public of San Pedro where invited to join the San Marco Gonzalez Ancient Maya Ceremony at 10am. Through swamp, through jungle, through the palms view up above the site is very evidence of natural soil and from different kinds of animals and pottery on the land when you enter the site. each step is like going back in time. It all started when Jane Brown introduced herself thanking each and everyone that showed up.
The guy played the flute presentation very well before the ceremony. The guy song with two flute at the same time, then 82 year old Martin Chuck from San Marcos, Toledo was invited to give a ceremony to bless Marco Gonzalez site.
Chuck gave his prayer in Maya giving his prayers to Jane Brown, the island and to protect the site from any harm. This Ceremony gives a lot of meaning as how important our Maya Culture are. First the pot was lid up. Everyone then lid up candles and then bowed their heads to give the prayer remarks. With the continuation of the prayer it took a matter of minutes so he could end his prayers. Martin Chuck did a great job giving his ceremonial blessing throughout the property.
With the experience I saw it gives me a glance of how much it means a lot to them to continue their culture and teach others whats behind their culture.
