The civil war in Guatemala during the 1970s through the mid-1990s decimated the indigenous Maya population in many parts of the country. The Communities of the Population in Resistance (CPR) were groups of displaced Mayan people from three regions of Guatemala: Sierra, Ixcan and the Peten. This book contains interviews of 30 women from the CPR-Sierra group, which survived in the rugged mountains of the Ixil region of the Quiche highlands from 1982 until the Peace Accords were signed in 1996. Through their embroideries, they tell their stories of violence and murder at the hands of state violence by the Guatemalan government.
