Abstract:
To understand the genocide in Guatemala, it is necessary to know who the Mayan People are and what their history in the country has been. Below is a presentation of their economic, social and cultural reality, which will allow for a better understanding of the Internal Armed Conflict and the conviction for genocide of the former dictator José Efraín Ríos Montt.
