MÉRIDA, Yucatan, March 19, 2023.- In order to show the cultural richness, as well as to recognize the actions carried out to preserve and disseminate traditions, the Institute for the Development of Maya Culture (INDEMAYA) closed in Maxcanú the program of commemorative activities for the International Day of the Mother Tongue.
The director of the agency, Eric Villanueva Mukul, mentioned that this demarcation was chosen as the venue because it preserves its identity and emphasized that Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal promotes actions to strengthen culture throughout the territory, such as recognizing the people who, on a daily basis, promote Yucatecan Maya customs.
For this reason, he added, 20 citizens were honored who, with their work and artistic expressions, contribute to the permanence of these features in each area of the state, give luster to the Mayan population and have made it transcend to national and international levels.
The Dean of the Universidad Tecnológica del Poniente, Yesenia Polanco Ross, commented that the current administration is joining forces with the 106 municipalities to help these elements to prevail, a goal “where Governor Mauricio Vila places great emphasis and attention”.
The event recognized Luis Pérez Sabido, Ausencio Cauich Catzin, Christian H. Rasmunssen, Héctor Rodríguez Rodríguez, Isaías Uc Uc, José Artemio López Cumi, José Francisco Rodríguez Couoh, José Guadalupe Couoh Moo, José Miguel Couoh Moo, Juan Pablo Pech, Luis Alberto López Can, Macario Couoh Moo, Manuel Jesús Rodríguez Couoh, María Antonia González Chi, María Claudia Uc Cahum and Modesto Dzib Chin.
