Collars Needed
Published 7 Days ago by Alex G |

The dogs are getting fed but now they need to be identified, because of control reassons. For that matter, collars will be needed in order to know which dogs are being fed on a daily basis and eventually take them to a more competente veterinarian for further evaluations.

Very Very New born Puppies
Published 24 Days ago by Brenchell |

They are very very new born and I dont know if it would be wise to move them, but the place is very nasty. If someone has any advice of what is best to do please let me know. I am hoping the momy is looking for food and wondering if it would be a good idea to leave some dog food there for her and check on them later. They are by the pipes going to the lake next to the nature reserve in San Marcos.

Thank you, Whith your help they can find a house and food.

Assault June 4 2022
Sorry to report that two women where assaulted on Saturday night at 1:30am on the main path near the tunnel.
From what I heard, a woman was grabbed sexualy and threatened then around 10 minutes later in the night a second woman had her purse cut from her neck with his machete.
The suspect was described as around 5'2 feet tall, Guatemalan, muscular and wearing a black and white woven poncho with a hood. He did not say anything and acted like he was on drugs.
We are making plans to install a camera on the main path.
This incident and person resembles a similar in indent that happened three months ago.
This is not acceptable and we would like will track down this person as soon as possible. Please share any relevant activity or information to me or Alexander Goz .

Mayan Hip Hop Cosmovision in Lake Atitlan
Published 27 Days ago by Emilee M |
We walk amongst magic that flows through this entire lake. It dances through our hearts and in all of our serendipitous encounters. Like everything in life, we must remember the dance of balance - to give and receive.
 
For hundreds of years, the Mayan history and language has been taken, oppressed, and appropriated. Not only do we see and feel the magic of this place, but also the necessity to do our part in conserving this beautiful culture, language, and people.
 
It is our responsibility to understand the impact we have through our influence here. We must play our part to be curious, respectful, and open.
 
Weedman Majia and Wolf Fer Sajvin are 2 young men that have been working tirelessly for many years to produce songs in their language, to preserve the roots of a language that only a fraction of the world actually speaks. Their songs would bring so much pride and opportunity for their community, while inspiring the likes of so many young Mayans around the lake. In this way, we can help support the youth to step away from the negative influence in their environment, to break the cycles of oppression and rewrite their futures in the most beneficial way.
 
Our goal is to cover all the costs it takes for them to make these timeless pieces of art for their community, and to help them start their careers. To accomplish this, we hope to raise $2000 in May!
 
But in order to do this, we need your help!
 
All we ask is a donation to the cause (any amount helps). Em and Anna will be offering a playground workshop every Wednesday at 9:30am for your contribution!
 
We're working directly with Tzutu Kan and Ajaw Hip Hop which is the school of Mayan Hip Hop Cosmovision in Lake Atitlan that supports the local youth in expressing the core elements of their culture, such as the Mayan language.
 
Some words directly from the 2 young men we're supporting:
 
"Hello, my name is Lucas Fermin (or Wolf Fer Sajvin), I am originally from San Marcos La Laguna. Since I was a child, I loved music and fell in love with every musical instrument I touched. Growing up, I connected to different musical tastes, like the Marimba, which is the folklore inesxex ulew (earth of the corn), and from there also Rock Anglo. What mostly got my attention was hip hop culture. I love to rap and freestyle, often practicing with friends. This is the most beautiful art to me, so I composed songs that I want to continue growing, always fostering the Mayan culture in it. It's important to show this as it's done in every ethnic group that represents the Titlan Lake Basin."
 
"I am Weedman. My real name is spelt Widman. Since I was a child, I always liked all kinds of music, but between 2012-2013 I found out about this Hip Hop workshop called "Caza Ajaw" and I started to participate there knowing nothing about Hip Hop culture. It really caught my attention. Over time it became a huge part of my life, because as a child many of us did not have the opportunity to access technology. So, from there, I began to investigate the roots of Real Hip Hop, getting deeper into the role and rapping in Kaqchikel and Spanish. After a while, I stepped away from it because of so many vices that surrounded me. I liked to walk in the street then go to school, but I never left Rap. I would still write about my life and what was happening around me despite so much criticism and ridicule. But I never cared. To this day, I'm trying to turn the tables, to stand out from crowd through my music and my love of Hip Hop."

Asegúrate de que estos cachorros sobrevivan 🐕🦮🐶🐶🐶
Published 32 Days ago by Alex G |

Bartolo, el guardián del castillo, rescató tres cachorros de morir; nacieron bajo la lluvia y en la calle, frente a la propiedad de la cual él es jardinero. Buscaron refugio y lo encontraron en su jardín. 
 

Momentáneamente viven en una caja de cartón, la que les sirve para mantenerse juntos y preservar el calor que necesitarán durante la noche. Pero la caja está húmeda y ya no aguanta más, por lo que la prioridad está en conseguirles un techo adecuado. Afortunadamente, la madre y el padre de los cachorros también están, y son ellos los que necesitan alimentarse diariamente.

Con tu aporte, los cachorros recibirán una casa apropiada para ellos, la madre y el padre recibirán comida diaria. 
 

Bartolo no se puede hacer cargo de los costos, tiene sus propios cachorros que alimentar.
