Our Dream | Mopan Mayan Family in Belize

Yan in numul meaning "I have a dream" We at Quichpan Luum have many dreams. Our biggest dream is that one day Na Luum Ca Mayan Village of Belize will teach, and our people will learn to read and write in the Mopan Mayan language. There is many people speaking the Mayan language but most people can not read nor write the Mayan language.

But I have a dream that one day there will be a school in Na Luum Ca that teaches the Mayan language. I think it is very important for someone to be educated in their own native language, in order to preserve their native culture and heritage.

On your Bellize adventure, while staying with our family, you can learn the Mopan Mayan language, tour the rainforest, learn medicinal herbs, skills, culture, traditions. So what is the herb class schedule? It flows naturally throughout the days that you visit, as with all life learning.
