the Mayan Quiché: Peace talk in Guatemala
Within a historic-political exhibition, FWC honored the former Czech president and world citizen,Václav Havel.
A presentation of all signatories of Charta 77, whose co-initiator Mr. Havel was and whose brave activity
ultimately lead to the collapse of communism in Czechoslovakia.
The exhibit presented President Havel's thoughts and writing in an authentic way, to guard their constant value.
Likewise, we remember the philosopher Prof. Jan Patočka, who was the mental leader of
Czech thought up to his death after an interrogation in 1977.
|We thrive to support projects, such as the educational program of the all-Mayan school
SWAN TINAMIT in the Guatemalan town Chichicastenango. Here young Mayans are being
taught by their own s scholarly people about their own culture that has been lost over centuries
due to political suppression.
Now, they have a new chance to pass on their heritage by teaching this knowledge in community
schools and teach even younger children what some of their parents had little knowledge of. Some
of the elders kept Mayan knowledge through oral tradition and by maintaining a spiritual relationship
to their ancestors, but for the common man, it had fallen to the Conquest.
To know and live ones identity is a birth right.
The show had a major impact on citizens and visitors. Its mission was to bring two cultures - the Czech and the German -closer to each
other, after historical events had created mutual resistance and now stood in the way to co-existence.
Our exhibition has brought a new outlook and has been visited by some of the politically most effected people in this border-near area.
