Guatemala too young to wed documentary
 
08:54
In Guatemala, it's legal for a girl to marry as young as 14 — though many are married far younger than that. The result: Many girls marry men far older than themselves and become mothers long before they are physically and emotionally ready. Many of these girls faced harsh consequences, similar to those of child brides in other developing nations. They had withdrawn from their educations, some as early as elementary school; were subject to physical and sexual violence; risked dangerous pregnancies and went without crucial medical care. Many aspects of their lives were controlled by older men who considered the girls little more than sexual and domestic servants. Furthermore, the physically immature and psychologically unready young mothers were prone to complications during childbirth, which often took place at home. Stephanie Sinclair, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, is the founder and executive director of the nonprofit organization Too Young to Wed. This project in Guatemala was done in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund. The film below was co-directed by Katie Orlinsky.

Guatemala Travel Video Guide
 
05:10
Guatemala Travel Video Guide - Guatemala has a rich and distinctive culture from the long mix of elements from Spain and the native Maya people. This diverse history and the natural beauty of the land have created a destination rich in interesting and scenic sites. Spanning a mountainous slice of Central America immediately south of Mexico, Guatemala is loaded with incredible natural, historical and cultural appeal. As the birthplace and heartland of the ancient Maya, the country is in many ways defined by the legacy of this early civilization. Their rainforest cities were abandoned centuries ago, but Maya people continue to thrive in the Guatemalan highlands, where traditions and religious rituals, mingled with Catholic practices, endure to form the richest and most distinctive indigenous identity in the hemisphere. Guatemala today is very much a synthesis of Maya and colonial traditions, fused with the omnipresent influences of twenty-first century Latin and North American culture. Baroque churches dating back to the Spanish Conquest coexist with pagan temples that have been sites of worship for millennia. Highland street markets prosper alongside vast glitzy shopping malls, and pre-Columbian festival dances are performed by teenage hip-hop fans. All this in your Guatemala Travel Video Guide! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZr2V_KRxOU

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Quetzal is the currency of Guatemala and also the national bird, it is a fragile and rare animal. The bird´s tail feather was used as a form of currency back in the Maya Empire. 2. Atitlán means ‘at the water’ in Aztec language and is a lake in the nothern Guatemala highlands. It is the deepest lake in Central America and is considered as “the most beautiful lake in the world” by several explorers like Aldous Huxley. Atitlán is also surrounded by 3 conical volcanoes, making it a must to visit place. 3. Chichi or Chichicastenango is the no.1 shopping destination of whole Guatemala, it is located between 2 and 3 hours southwest of Guatemala City. Chichicastenango (also called Chichi) is considered to be home to the brightest probably most vibrant native market in Central America. You can find there a lot of things like local fabrics, clothing, pottery, wood crafted items or even fireworks, there is something for everyone. This City also hosts many festivals. 4. On May 30, 2010, an enormous hole, 60 feet wide and 30 stories deep, opened up in the middle of Guatemala City, swallowing a three-story building and a home. It also caused the death of a man. The reason for the formation of the sinkhole is thought to be the weak material the city is built on – volcano pumice. This was only 3 years after another sinkhole formed in Guatemala City, in 2007. 5. Much of Guatemala’s history has been marked by violence. For 36 years, the country was embattled in a civil war that took the lives of more than 200,000 people. The war brought about mass murders and resulted in millions of people being run off of their land. Guatemala’s civil war ended in December 1996, but the war scars still remain. Violence and intimidation are major problems in private life and in politics too. 6. 21 varieties of Mayan languages are spoken in Guatemala by mainly the rural population. Indigenous languages of Guatemala include Xinca and Garifuna, spoken by populations restricted to the coast. It is usual for native language speakers to have knowledge of either Spanish or other national languages beside their mother tongue. Efforts to preserve ancient Mayan literature and scripts are undertaken to know more about the history of the country. 7. The first chocolate bar was discovered during the Mayan civilization in Guatemala (Thank Mayan gods for that!). Mayans used to worship the cacao tree as they believed it to be sacred. The aphrodisiac properties of cocoa were well known and it was often consumed in the form of a drink. The Mayans used to pray to a deity called Ek Chuah, who symbolized the cacao tree. However, chocolate was usually consumed in its bitter form with the occasional use of chilli. Chocolate is widely consumed in Guatemala even today with a chocolate museum in the city of Antigua. And cocoa is still sacred in Guatemala with cocoa shops, confectioneries and breweries present in almost all the developed cities.

🇬🇹 Guatemala's Disappeared | Fault Lines
 
25:01
Across Guatemala, thousands of families have been affected by mass murder, torture, and repression dating back to the country's civil war. Up to 45,000 civilians were forcibly disappeared during the 36-year conflict; an estimated 200,000 were killed. And while peace accords were signed in 1996, the war crimes of that era have largely gone unpunished. Now with the help of forensic evidence and the testimony of survivors, some former military leaders are facing trial for the first time. Jason Motlagh traveled to Guatemala to meet some of the families still searching for justice -- and the truth about what happened to their loved ones. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

In Guatemala, structures dating from Mayan civilization were discovered.
 
01:50
In Guatemala, structures dating from Mayan civilization were discovered. Under the forested area north of Guatemala, ancient Mayan civilizations were found. Marcello Canuto, a team from the study, said that researchers using aerial high-tech laser scanners have reached nearly 60,000 remains of the Mayan period in the last two years of scanning in the El Peten area, according to the site "phys.org". "These findings are a revolution in Maya archeology," archaeologist Canuto from Tulane University in the United States noted, among the newly discovered structures, urban centers with pavements, houses, terraces, ceremonial centers and irrigation canals. expression. He pointed out that researchers believed that ancient Maya civilization had "much higher" than previous estimates and had a population of more than 10 million, indicating that a 14-kilometer wall was found between the finds. The details of the research were announced on February 11 in a documentary to be published on the National Geographic channel. The Mayan civilization, considered one of the most important of pre-Columbian civilizations, ruled a region extending from southern Mexico to Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. The civilization which grew in 400 BC and started to develop and rose up in 600 BC, lived in the golden age of 250-900 BC and ended with the Spanish occupation. The researches in the Mayan cities show that Mayans reach a very high level in many fields such as astronomy, mathematics, architecture and art.

Haunted by the Ghosts of Guatemala’s Bloody Civil War
 
01:54
I’m in the jungles of northern Guatemala, scouting for a new public television special about world hunger — and I’m learning that extreme poverty is often rooted in conflict. Today, Agros International brought me to a cemetery that was filled with tombs dating from 1981 and 1982 — an especially violent period of Guatemala’s civil war, when the government massacred thousands of indigenous civilians. Walking through this poignant cemetery, hearing survivors tell stories of lost loved ones who were struggling for a little corn and a few beans, I felt the scars of that tragic time. When I traveled through Central America back in 1988, a favorite song was Jackson Browne’s “Lives in the Balance.” Listening to it again, the lyrics — so painfully true back then for me — still pack a punch: I've been waiting for something to happen For a week or a month or a year With the blood in the ink of the headlines And the sound of the crowd in my ear You might ask what it takes to remember When you know that you've seen it before Where a government lies to a people And a country is drifting to war And there's a shadow on the faces Of the men who send the guns To the wars that are fought in places Where their business interest runs On the radio talk shows and the T.V. You hear one thing again and again How the U.S.A. stands for freedom And we come to the aid of a friend But who are the ones that we call our friends These governments killing their own? Or the people who finally can't take any more And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone There are lives in the balance There are people under fire There are children at the cannons And there is blood on the wire There's a shadow on the faces Of the men who fan the flames Of the wars that are fought in places Where we can't even say the names They sell us the President the same way They sell us our clothes and our cars They sell us everything from youth to religion The same time they sell us our wars I want to know who the men in the shadows are I want to hear somebody asking them why They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are But they're never the ones to fight or to die And there are lives in the balance There are people under fire There are children at the cannons And there is blood on the wire __ You can find out more about my trip to Guatemala at https://blog.ricksteves.com/blog/tag/guatemala

PAN AM AIRLINES  MEXICO, YUCATAN PENINSULA & GUATEMALA 1960s TRAVELOGUE  59864
 
28:01
This color film from the 1960s was produced for Pan American by Vision Associates Productions. The Yucatan Peninsula (:26) is less than 2 hours from the U.S. by a Pan American Boeing 707 Jet Clipper. A Golden Triangle vacation is to visit the cities of Merida, Mexico City, and Guatemala City (:50). Merida is a city dating back to the Maya Indians. It is the capital of Yucatan (:59) and has many street vendors (1:14). A show at night reenacts the Mayan rituals (2:18-3:05). The ruins of temples (3:28) have intricate stone carvings, and their mastery of building is shown by a large stone palace (3:59-4:23). At a hacienda, a boy sculpts in clay (4:40) and a man paints the figures (4:56). The city of Chichen Itza (5:17-5:55) has a pyramid that is actually a Mayan calendar. This most sacred city of the Maya (5:57) has a hall of columns that originally supported a ceremonial platform (6:11). At its center is the Temple of the Warriors (6:20) and the statue of Chaahk, the god of rain (6:26). Sports played here included passing a ball through a two-foot hoop (6:39) with carvings at its base of the winners (6:48). Along another wall is the record of the losing team (7:00), its captain beheaded. Also there is Cenote, a sacred well that is a natural sinkhole (7:11-7:33). The Quintana Roo territory also contains abandoned temples on the hillside (8:11-9:00). Offshore is the island of Cozumel (9:07), a new vacation destination at that time. A group goes scuba diving (9:18-11:32) as others enjoy sailing and swimming (11:34-13:30). Scuba divers grabs lobsters for eating back at shore (13:31-14:45). Guatemala City is the nation’s capital, where modern architecture mixes with classic symbolism (15:57-17:09). A giant cross (17:13) rises at Antiqua, a city with many ancient churches intricately carved but heavily damaged by earthquakes and so turned into parks (17:26-18:30). Agua, an active volcano, overlooks the city (18:44). A woman displays and makes hand-loomed rugs (18:48-19:15). The Maya still live around Lake Atitlan (19:17-19:37). On Sunday mornings, they walk to Chichicastenango, a meeting and marketplace where they sell the goods they carried there on their backs, including pottery, vegetables, wood, and textiles (19:56-21:40). Worshipers wave incense on the steps of the Iglesia de Santo Tomas church, built around 1545 (21:42-21:51).In Mexico City, the Angel of Independence statue (22:06) looms over the Paseo de la Reforma Boulevard with its many high-end hotels (22:15-22:41). An art market (22:45-23:30) offers many selections while a man plays a street organ (22:51). The National Autonomous University of Mexico Library is covered In mosaic art work (23:36). A mariachi band plays among boats hand-maneuvered through the canals (23:55-24:50). Nighttime lights highlight the Zocalo, the main square of the government buildings (24:57) as well as many neon lights and shows (25:03-25:53).

MOM'S NIGHT OUT PART II -WHITE GIRL WASTED IN ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
 
08:33
Mom's Night out is a video I made ages ago when I got my first opportunity to dress up and go to a wedding (and get childcare for the first time) - I got white girl wasted on two vodka cranberry's and came home to a sleeping baby around 11PM. It was glorious. Now, living in Antigua, i got another shot at going out after many more months of being trapped at home by a tiny queen. Thanks to Briana for taking this girl dancing and to Bev for taking care of my kid for a night.

This is a comparison (a/b test) to see if people prefer the 2D experience or the 360 Video. To access the 360 Version go here: https://youtu.be/2erRIG0ZA34 Please let me know which you prefer. This is a walk through of the ancient Mayan city of Tikal in Guatemala. It is one of the largest and best restored of the mayan ruins. The walk starts in the late afternoon from Temple 4 from which you can look back east over the rest of the city. However, the ruins are only 20percent restored so most of the city is still shrouded in jungle with a few temples sticking up out of the trees. Ironically, it is those trees that hold the stones of the unrestored city in place. It was a hot day in the jungle but we hear birds and see spider monkeys jumping from a tree onto one of the temples. I hope you enjoy this version of the walk but please let me know which you prefer.

🇬🇹 Guatemalan Independence Day Celebration
 
00:45
An afternoon walk around #Antigua on #Guatemala's Independence Day celebrations. People of all ages take part in a torch run through the streets. "La Antorcha", preserves a tradition dating back to the night before the historic day itself (14th September 1821) in which independence hero, María Dolores Bedoya, ran through the streets of #Guatemala carrying a lantern as a symbol of hope for the nation’s liberated future, modern-day participants take equal pleasure in celebrating their continued independence. In a combined effort, the relay runners, generally of school or university age, cover a distance of approximately 350km across the five Central American countries. Naturally, the extensive relay creates great excitement amongst Guatemalan spectators who cheer loudly as they watch the torch pass through their beloved towns and villages.”

Guatemala/Lake Atitlán (Beautiful)  Part 8
 
18:13
Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Guatemala/Lake Atitlán : Lake Atitlán (Lago de Atitlán) is a large endorheic lake (one that does not flow to the sea) in the Guatemalan Highlands. Atitlan is recognized to be the deepest lake in Central America with maximum depth about 340 meters. The lake is shaped by deep escarpments which surround it and by three volcanoes on its southern flank. Lake Atitlan is further characterized by towns and villages of the Maya people. Lake Atitlán is about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west-northwest of Antigua. Lake Atitlán should not be confused with Lake Amatitlán. Lake Amatitlán is located about 65 kilometres (40 mi) southeast of Lake Atitlán and 16 kilometres (10 mi) southeast of Antigua. Lake Atitlán is much larger than Lake Amatitlán. "At the water" is the meaning of "Atitlan." It is a fusion of simple Nahuatl words that belies the complexity of the entity it identifies. German explorer Alexander von Humbolt is the earliest prominent foreigner generally quoted as calling it "the most beautiful lake in the world." The lake is volcanic in origin, filling an enormous caldera formed in an eruption 84,000 years ago. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and Aldous Huxley famously wrote of it: "Lake Como, it seems to me, touches on the limit of permissibly picturesque, but Atitlán is Como with additional embellishments of several immense volcanoes. It really is too much of a good thing."The lake basin supports extensive coffee growth and a variety of farm crops, most notably corn. Other significant agricultural products include onions, beans, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, chile verde, strawberries, avocados and pitahaya fruit. The lake itself is rich in animal life which provides a significant food source for the largely indigenous population. Culture The lake is surrounded by many villages, in which Maya culture is still prevalent and traditional dress is worn. The Maya people of Atitlán are predominantly Tz'utujil and Kaqchikel. During the Spanish conquest of the Americas, the Kaqchikel initially allied themselves with the invaders to defeat their historic enemies the Tz'utujil and Quiché Maya, but were themselves conquered and subdued when they refused to pay tribute to the Spanish. Santiago Atitlán is the largest of the lakeside communities, and is noted for its worship of Maximón, an idol formed by the fusion of traditional Mayan deities, Catholic saints and conquistador legends. The institutionalized effigy of Maximón is under the control of a local religious brotherhood and resides in various houses of its membership during the course of a year, being most ceremonially moved in a grand procession during Semana Santa. Several towns in Guatemala have similar cults, most notably the cult of San Simón in Zunil. While Maya culture is predominant in most lakeside communities, the largest town on the shores, Panajachel, has been overwhelmed over the years by tourists. It attracted many hippies in the 1960s, and although the war caused many foreigners to leave, the end of hostilities in 1996 saw visitor numbers boom again, and the town's economy is almost entirely reliant on tourism today. Several Mayan archaeological sites have been found at the lake. Sambaj, located approximately 55 feet below the current lake level, appears to be from at least the pre-classic period. There are remains of multiple groups of buildings, including one particular group of large buildings that are believed to be the city center. A second site, Chiutinamit, where the remains of a city were found, was discovered by local fishermen who "noticed what appeared to be a city underwater".During consequent investigations, pottery shards were recovered from the site by divers, which enabled the dating of the site to the late pre-classic period (600 B.C. - 250 A.D.). A project titled "Underwater archeology in the Lake Atitlán. Sambaj 2003 Guatemala" was recently approved by the Government of Guatemala in cooperation with Fundación Albenga and the Lake Museum in Atitlán. Because of the concerns of a private organization as is the Lake Museum in Atitlán the need to start the exploration of the inland waters in Guatemala was analyzed. There is no road that circles the lake. Communities are reached by boat or roads from the mountains that may have brief extensions along the shore. Santa Cruz La Laguna and Jaibalito can only be reached by boat. Santa Catarina Palopó and San Antonio Palopó are linked to Panajachel. Main places otherwise are Santa Clara La Laguna and San Pedro La Laguna in the West, Santiago Atitlán in the South, and San Lucas Tolimán in the East.Wikipedia

Mundo Perdido, Tikal, Petén Department, Guatemala, Central America, North America
 
02:43
The Mundo Perdido is the largest ceremonial complex dating from the Preclassic period at the ancient Maya city of Tikal, in the Petén Department of northern Guatemala. The complex was organised as a large E-Group astronomical complex consisting of a pyramid aligned with a platform to the east that supported three temples. The Mundo Perdido complex was rebuilt many times over the course of its history. By AD 250--300 its architectural style was influenced by the great metropolis of Teotihuacan in the Valley of Mexico, including the use of the talud-tablero form. During the Early Classic period (c. 250--600) the Mundo Perdido became one of the twin foci of the city, the other being the North Acropolis. From AD 250 to 378 it may have served as the royal necropolis. The Mundo Perdido complex was given its name by the archaeologists of the University of Pennsylvania. The large plaza centred upon the Lost World Pyramid (5C-54) and the ceremonial platform to the west (5C-53) is divided into two clearly demarcated areas referred to as the High Plaza and the Low Plaza. The High Plaza is the area around the Lost World Pyramid. It is closed on the south side by Structures 6C-24 and 6C-25. A range of eight adjoining structures divide the High Plaza from the Plaza of the Seven Temples to the east. On the north side, the Plaza is principally delimited by Structures 5D-77, 5D-45, 5D-46, together with some smaller structures. The Low Plaza lies to the west of the Lost World Pyramid, centred upon Structure 5C-53, a low platform. The Low Plaza is closed on its north side by the Talud-Tablero Temple (5C-49), which is the second largest structure in the whole complex. The complex has a surface area of approximately 60,000 square metres (650,000 sq ft). Guatemalan archaeologists have made major discoveries in the Mundo Perdido since the 1970s. The National Tikal Project (Proyecto Nacional Tikal) investigated the Mundo Perdido from 1979 until 1985, and partially restored the principal structures of the complex. The Mundo Perdido was the first architectural complex to be built at Tikal in the Preclassic period and the last to be abandoned during the Terminal Classic. Archaeologist William R. Coe divided the Mundo Perdido complex into two clearly demarcated areas that he referred to as the High Plaza and the Low Plaza. The High Plaza is the area around the Lost World Pyramid. It is closed on the south side by Structures 6C-24 and 6C-25. A range of eight adjoining structures divide the High Plaza from the Plaza of the Seven Temples to the east. On the north side, the Plaza is principally delimited by Structures 5D-77, 5C-45, 5C-46, together with some smaller structures. The Low Plaza lies to the west of the Lost World Pyramid, centred upon Structure 5C-53, a low platform. The Low Plaza is closed on its north side by the Talud-Tablero Temple (5C-49), which is the second largest structure in the whole complex. More recently, the Proyecto Nacional Tikal has defined the complex as an area divided into four plazas. The North, East and West Plazas are defined by their relationship to the Lost World Pyramid (5C-54) while the South Plaza is on the south side of Structures 6C-25 and 6C-25, themselves to the south of the Lost World Pyramid. The Lost World Pyramid (Structure 5C-54, also known as the Great Pyramid) dates to the Late Preclassic. This structure is the focus of the Mundo Perdido complex; it currently stands approximately 31 metres (102 ft) high and has a maximum width across the base of 67.5 metres (221 ft). The Lost World Pyramid was one of the most massive construction projects ever undertaken at Tikal. The pyramid is accessed via a stairway on the west side; this was flanked by giant masks. The final version of the structure had stairways on both the east and west sides that extended to the top, with additional stairways on the north and south sides climbing only as far as the eighth of ten levels. This structure was one of the most massive buildings in the whole of Late Preclassic Mesoamerica and its construction used masonry blocks that measured over 1.8 metres (5.9 ft) long. The pyramid was periodically rebuilt throughout its history, in common with the rest of the complex. The version now visible is the fifth version, dating to around AD 250. When it was built it was the tallest structure in the entire city. The stepped levels of the pyramid have inset vertical panels that were forerunners of the talud-tablero style; these early tableros first made an appearance in the second half of the 3rd century AD when they were built into the fifth construction phase of the pyramid.
