Healers of the Maya (Curanderos de los Mayas) by José GutiérrezFive hundred years after the European conquest of Mexico, the institution of the curandero, or healer, continues to survive among the indigenous Maya of the Yucatan peninsula. In fact, many indigenous Mexicans have immigrated to the United States and brought their beliefs about health care with them. The curanderos are older, respected members of Mayan society, experienced herbalists, psychologist, and community leaders. They have integrated many features of Western society into their world: Christianity is an integral part of their practice, and many of them accept a role for Western medicine. Their world is vibrant, ancient, wise, and colorful, but fast disappearing.
