MOLOJ WA'IX EJQALEM

COMALAPA, GUATEMALA

Moloj Wa’ix Ejqalem is a collective of indigenous Maya Kaqchiquel women, who perform a piece on sexual violence in Guatemala. The performance spans Guatemala’s complicated political and cultural histories, and addresses the trauma and silence that comes in the wake of violence, the need to speak out and denounce abusers, and the healing that can be brought about through ancestral practices and community support.
