Belize – The Maya of Yucatan

This documentary examines the history of the Mayan people in the part of the Yucatan Peninsula that is now called Belize. The magnificent pyramids and temple remains of the ancient Maya city of Caracol is uncovered. Artifacts reveals tribal wars, religions, hierarchy and the history of this ancient civilization that lasted over 2000 years; then vanished.

Belize is an oddity in being the only country in Central America that has a British heritage and where English is the official language.

Discover how the modern descendants of the Maya have attempted to protect their countries environment, but perhaps have unwittingly helped in its further destruction. All of this is set against the beautiful background of the curious country that is now known as Belize.

MAYAN QUOTE by Rigoberta Menchu  

“We are not myths of the past, ruins in the jungle or zoos.

 We are people and we want to be respected,

not to be victims of intolerance and racism.”
