Minette Church, associate professor, Anthropology Department, and faculty director for the Heller Center for the Arts and Humanities, will deliver “The line is a line drawn upon a map, and the Country is a wilderness: British Colonial Memory and the San Pedro Maya of Western Belize” at 2 p.m. April 15 at the Archaeological Institute of America meeting.
Church’s presentation will be at the Auraria Campus, North Classroom, Room 1511, 1100 Lawrence Street, Denver. It is free and open to the public.
Church will discuss the Maya Indian population that occupied Belize before British colonization. These narratives have impacts on Maya descendants and their relations with sites, and with archaeologists who continue to work in Belize.
