Today we celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples and the rich culture they bring to our global community. Most of CoEd’s education programs are in schools situated in the highlands of Guatemala, where the vibrant Mayan culture springs forth. Enjoy this edition of Friday Photo Fiesta as we salute our favorite indigenous peoples – the Mayans.
