Episode Description:

''People of Pixan'' explores the affects of machismo and the loss of indigenous culture that is experienced by Mayan women. The Romero family has flourished over three generations through the support of Asociación de Mujeres de Altiplanos (AMA) - a local non-for-profit organization in Quetzaltenango (Xela), Guatemala. Through the assistance and educational programs provided by AMA, the Romero women have been able to preserve their Mayan identities and lifestyle while being provided with fair work opportunities. Pixan means spirit, this documentary features the strong and perseverant spirit of the indigenous women of the Romero family and the leaders of AMA.
