Toledo Alcaldes Association names new executive

Posted: Tuesday, January 24, 2023. 4:18 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Toledo Alcaldes Association (TAA) reports that San Miguel, Toledo District’s Andres Cus has been elected president of the Executive Council, succeeding Domingo Bah of Santa Ana.

An official handover ceremony was held on January 21 in the village of Blue Creek – 8 Aq’ab’al on the Maya calendar, which signifies a new dawn – and in the words of the Maya Leaders Alliance and TAA, the ceremony is one that is “transferring both authority and knowledge from the outgoing Executive Council to the incoming Alcaldes,” preparing them to undertake their roles within the Maya governance system.

Kamolb’e (Alcalde) Bah remains on the executive along with Raymundo Sho of Santa Cruz; Diego Oh of Na Luum Caj; Brijilio Garcia of Santa Elena; Marcelino Pop of Golden Stream; and Andres Ishim of Blue Creek. 73 of 78 alcaldes and deputy alcaldes participated.

The executive is elected for a two-year term, aligned with that of the alcalde system, which is recognized as the traditional leadership structure in all Maya villages. The TAA is the Maya people’s collective governance institution and a symbol of its unity in the face of competing interests.
