Despite our enthusiasm for the scheduled 2020 Summer School & Mentored Research program in K'iche', the current global COVID-19 situation has compelled us to cancel the summer 2020 program.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your interest in the summer program in K'iche'. We hope to resume our summer programs & mentored research in 2021.



Summer Field School 2020

Guatemala Winter School for Kaqchikel

The Guatemala Field Station will be offering our second annual two-week Winter School for Kaqchikel. 

Program Dates: January 4 - 19, 2020

At the intersection of Q'anjob'al, Awakateko, K'iche', Kaqchikel, and Spanish —

"Encuentro Nacional de Activistas Digitales de Lenguas Indígenas".

The first group of language scientists from UMD has arrived in Guatemala for a month of Mayan language study and research.  Throughout June, they will be taking intensive classes in Kaqchikel, staying with Kaqchikel-speaking host families, working on language research projects and observing the work of healthcare non-profit Wuqu’ Kawoq / Maya Health Alliance.
