Cakchiquel-Maya Chronicles Translation Project

To support the transcription and translation of two histories from the Spanish Colonial era of the Cakchiquel, a highland Maya people who lived in what is nowGuatemala.

The project seeks to produce definitive transcriptions and English translations of the main Cakchiquel-Maya chronicles: The "Annals of the Cakchiquels," and the "History of the Xpantzay." For this purpose the project will employ a linguist specializing in Cakchiquel, an ethnohistorian specializing in preconquest/colonial cakchiquel culture, an ethnographer who has worked extensively in a key Cakchiquel community, and two native speakers.
