Yesterday, Rene and I met with Juan, who will be my assistant and Mayan language transcriber and translator. He is also the owner of the printer which will make the books. We had a good discussion. We will be working with three lists of potential participants, one drawn up by Celeste, my former maestra and Rabin Ajaw (if you follow that link, you will see photos of the election of the current Rabin Ajaw. Celeste, the former, is the one wearing the crown.), one by Rene, and one by Juan. In lieu of my previous method of simply asking each person for a story, we will present them with three or four questions, tailored to what we actually know bout the person in advance. After the interview and photoshoot, Juan and I will decide which parts of their responses will be the most interesting and descriptive of them. He will arrange the appointments and give them the questions the day before, so they are somewhat prepared. We meet this morning to work on exactly what the questions will be.
