Guatemalan Syncretism


During tge colonization of the Americas, spaniards would use brutal techniques to “save” souls of Mayan infidels and convert them to Christianity.

Guatemalan Mayans were forced to abandoned or hide their religion and adapt it to the Christian system.
This syncretism is deeply entrenched in Guatemala’s indigenous communities.
