The Maya Heritage Community Project (MHCP) builds academic and educational knowledge in alliance with Maya organizations and people of Maya heritage in the United States and in the Maya homelands. The University System of Georgia Office of International Education gave the MHCP a grant for a university conference in 2003; the United States Peace Corps recognized the MHCP as an approved Returned Peace Corps Fellows Program in 2007; and the dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences recognized the MHCP in 2012. Dozens of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students from across the campus have worked with the project. To learn more about us, follow the links to explore this website.
To understand the Maya in the United States is to understand the United States.
