Maya Arts and Culture
The mission of this program is to heal historical trauma and revive the Maya civilization through the arts.
The program consists of celebrations according to the Sacred Maya Calendar and other arts projects that incorporate Maya culture, history and worldview. These include Maya music, performance and visual arts based on the Maya sacred book the Popol Vuh, as well as Maya cuisine.
Maya Community Mural
In 2019, Comunidad Maya Pixan Ixim, with the help of A Midsummer Mural company and many others from the Omaha community, designed and painted a mural representing the Mayan peoples of Omaha. This mural is part of the South Omaha Mural Project and was created with funding from the State of Nebraska.
