Committing to going through my archive and organizing my embarrassing jumble of hard drives this year (if I make a resolution on instagram y’all will hold me accountable, right?). Starting a decade ago, with some old film from a trip to Guatemala, and an afternoon spent with Doña Caterina while she roasted coffee beans in San Juan Cotzal, Guatemala. Doña Caterina is part of the Ixil community, in a region that was heavily targeted during the Guatemalan Civil War that ran from 1960-1996. The Guatemalan Army destroyed 440 Mayan villages in a two year window, and were later found to have killed nearly 200,000 Guatemalans, 83 percent of whom were Mayan. To this day, many of the villages that remain are heavily female, with women managing labor, food production, families, and community organizing.
