Mapa Verde in Mexico + Spanish Resources

In March, our director was heading to Mexico. After exciting days and meetings in Mexico City, Wendy connected with a historic anthropology museum in San Cristobal de las Casas (which is in the state of Chiapas) to hold a Green Map workshop. Museo Na Bolom had just opened a terrific exhibition entitled ‘The Map Is Not The Territory’, covering the early years of exploration by outsiders of the Lacandon Jungle and its riches of Mayan Ruins.
Tim May, curator, led the Mapa Verde Taller and an enthusiastic group joined in. Several local people plus visitors from Spain, Canada and the US took part. Below, find some of the Spanish resources for Green Mapmaking we shared there. 
Using our icons, the collectives, areas that flood, and historic sites were quickly charted. We’re glad to share that the sketch map made there was added to the exhibition, along with Green Map materials in Spanish!
Wendy so appreciated the culture and nature she experienced there and we hope to see more mapmaking in Mexico. Special thanks to Tim May and everyone at Na Bolom, Lyn and Dave Pentacost and Ray Sage.
