Below is short Biography on Tata Pedro Cruz

Tata Pedro Cruz who's maya name is k'u'x'ya meaning heart of the lake, is one of the last living Tzutujil Mayan elders of Lago Atitlan Guatemala.  He is a member of the Council of Mayan Elders of Guatemala and 2005 World Peace Ambassador. He has been working to bring together surrounding Maya from neighboring villages to hold ceremony with one another.  He started holding a gathering of elders and young Maya from all over Guatemala and  traveling to Tikal where he has been holding ceremonies in Tikal at the main Jaguar courtyard for the December 21 winter solstice for the past 6 years and will continue to do so until December 21 2012.  Tata Pedro's main philosophy is in order for us to come together as a world we must first come together in our own communities.  He has been leading ceremonies to unite varying Maya lineages, along with  allowing westerners to be a part of some of the Maya ceremonies bringing together a unity of all races, continents and creeds.  He is a day keeper of the Tzutujil Mayan Calendar which is a branch of the Quiche Maya.  He has been leading workshops to untie the Maya within his communities and teaching youth around the world about the wisdom of the elders and the Mayan ancestor knowledge.  Through all of his experiences throughout life, his main phrase is something that can resonate with all of us.  "No matter what everything always with love." 

 

To learn more about Tata Pedro you can view him in a small clip below on the film we have been making on his life for the past 2 1/2 years.  It is a non-profit documentary with the goal of giving back into the communities that we have been working with over the years.  We are very grateful to be able to work with Tata Pedro, and our friends from around Guatemala.
