Masks play important spiritual, political, and cultural roles for communities around the world. In mask dances, Maya performers wore masks of different animals in dance performances to honor their heritage and tradition, commemorate their history, and make political and social statements. Students will learn about the importance of masks for Maya communities, past and present, and then design their own animal masks.
