Earthwaysjourneys and Lake Atitlan Spanish School together in the protection of Indigenous Language/Culture & Sacred Water.
IJA'TZ means seed in Tz'utujil Maya. We are planting and protecting the seeds of the future. This free of cost & integral learning program for local Mayan children aims at preserving their Tz'utujil Maya Mother Tongue and the Traditional ways of their ancestors. 15% of all proceeds from our guided journeys go towards this collective project. Any remaining funds will go toward water restoration projects for the Sacred Water of Lago de Atitlán.
This project is currently on pause due to the pandemic. Unfortunately the community that we were working with were very impacted. Jonah is in touch with his collaborators and teammates in Guatemala and all are hopeful for the continuation of this beautiful project.
