For 26 years, Lori Benson has traveled to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas to work with the Highland Maya. At first, it was part of a continuing project with the Science Museum of Minnesota. Currently, she and  colleagues are developing a virtual space to gather archives, photographs, textiles, and artifacts for communities, museums, students, and scholars. Her talk will focus on the stories, the relationships, and the hope for the future.
