Meet the women keeping a 2,000-year-old Indigenous craft alive in Guatemala

Indigenous Mayan women in Guatemala have passed down the tradition of weaving for over 2,000 years. But when a 36-year-long civil war in the late 20th century threatened Mayan culture, wearing traditional clothing became dangerous.

We visited a group in San Juan La Laguna to see how it is fighting to keep the craft alive.
