Abstract:

"Neighbors of the better-known Itza in the central Peten lakes region of Guatemala, the Kowoj Maya have been studied for little more than a decade. The Kowoj: Identity, Migration, and Geopolitics in Late Postclassic Peten, Guatemala summarizes the results of recent research into the this ethno-political group conducted by Prudence Rice, Don Rice, and their colleagues." "Chapters in The Kowoj address the question Who are the Kowoj? from varied viewpoints: archaeological, archival, linguistic, ethnographic, and bioarchaeological. Using data drawn primarily from the peninsular site of Zacpeten, the authors illuminate Kowoj history, ritual components of their self-expressed identity, and their archaeological identification. These data support the Kowoj claim of migration from Mayapan in Yucatan, where they were probably affiliated with the Xiw, in opposition to the Itza. These enmities extended into Peten, culminating in civil warfare by the time of final Spanish conquest in 1697."--BOOK JACKET.
