Performing Maya Play at the Smithsonian



The Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian has selected three community groups in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia to perform a community play called "Popol Vuh." The play uses native puppets to tell the story of how the Maya People were created.

We are proud to announce that our tenant association was selected to represent DC because we have a history of incorporating Mayan art in our tenant rights education and community organizing efforts.

Since this summer, we have been rehearsing our lines and making puppets in preparation for our performance this weekend.

The play is free and open to the public.

We hope that you will be able to join us this weekend. The play will be in Spanish with subtitles in English. There will be a morning and afternoon performance.
