Resumen

SIEDER, Rachel  y  MACLEOD, Morna. Gender, Law and Mayan Cosmology in Guatemala. Desacatos [online]. 2009, n.31, pp. 51-72. ISSN 1607-050X.

This paper explores the contributions made by women's organizations in Guatemala, regarding their reflections on identity, as well as on collective and gender rights; it also analyzes the way in which these reflections help to revitalize and strengthen indigenous law. The essay's prime objective is to establish links between Mayan women's theories about gender and identity, and the emerging practices for revitalizing indigenous law, which are guided by the efforts of Mayan activists to rescue their culture's values and principles.

Palabras llave : indigenous law; women; Mayas; cosmology; identity.
