In 2012 Baktún was born as an alliance of organizations and individuals with the VISION to conserve the heritage of Maya communities.
Today, we are an initiative that seeks to activate local intergenerational capacities to allow
the transfer of knowledge and culture to new generations. We promote the celebration,
conservation and transformation of its biocultural heritage, catalysing cultural projects that
contribute to the social, economic and natural regeneration and individual and collective
well-being of the Mayan communities of the Yucatan Peninsula.
