Aims & Purpose
“Maya America” refers to the entire original lands of the Maya and the present-day geographic region where people of Maya heritage currently live. Thus "Maya America" does not refer to the United States, but only includes the United States as one section of contemporary Maya homelands.
The journal features essays and literature about past, contemporary, and emerging experiences and challenges in the Americas. As borders are spanned geographically, socially, and psychologically, Maya America opens spaces for thoughtfulness and discussion, and in addition proposes collaboration and change.
Academic essays are double-blind peer reviewed while the creative works are peer reviewed. Authors keep full rights over their work. Authors are welcome regardless of ethnicity or background.
