Association Plans to Restore Uxbenka Site

Isidoro Makin

Makin says the importance of protecting the hallowed site is to honor the legacy of their ancestors.  As such the Uchbenka K’in Ajau Association has pledged to work closely with residents of Santa Cruz and the Institute of Archaeology to restore the site and manage it for future generations.

“We will work as good as we can do. We will see how we can manage the site the best we could and we will not give up that land. We will hold against it because that piece of land belongs to the community of Santa Cruz. We will keep it for our future generation because it is for our forefathers.”


The Santa Cruz Thirteen returns to court on September twenty-ninth.
