Just for clarification


We’re called Maya not Mayans. When you’re talking plural, it’s still Maya. Mayan is our language family/group.

I’m Maya. They’re Maya. The Maya calendar.

There’s roughly 30 or so different Maya ethnic groups with their own languages, traditions, clothing, culture, etc. just like the many different Pueblo Native groups in the southwest.
