Hello Amanda from Australia.  I have just noticed the conference that you are planning for Guatemala.  I am the Founder/President of a Womens cultural humanitarian organisation based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.  We actually formed this for the Maori Women originally from New Zealand and I am happy to say that with our research work we have also found that we are the descendants of the Mayan Indians and our culture and spiritual aspects are just so similar.  Due to the timing of your conference, it won't allow us to fundraise as I would have loved to bring a group of Maori Women across for the Conference, we could have offered to do our culture, song and dance for our Sisters in your Nation.  Please respond, we may have to look at trying to get sponsorship travel, but it is leaving it too late I feel...never mind miracles happen all the time....warm wishes from Merekaraka Caesar
