Axia College Material Appendix D Indigenous Culture Web Site Review Template Question Response Web site 1 URL: http://gomexico.about.com/od/historyculture/p/maya.ht m Name of Indigenous culture/religion presented in Web site Mayan culture Consider the examples of roles and observances held sacred by these people. Is this practice being kept alive? The practice isnt being kept alive by the Mayan's but it is by the Lacandon Maya which is a part of the Mayan culture. The Lacandon Maya are very secretive about their religion. Has the culture/religion evolved over time? Well since time has past a lot of their culture and religion have changed. They don't have ball game, human sacrifice and blood-letting ceremonies in which nobles pierced their tongues or genitals to shed blood as an offering to the gods. But like Lacandon Maya they still do these traditions. If the culture/religion still lives, how has Western culture changed it? They live on today in the same areas their ancestors inhabited. Although their culture has changed over time, many Mayas maintain their language and traditions. There are over 750 000 speakers of Mayan languages living in Mexico today. To the present day their religion is a color hybrid of Catholism.
