ISHIHARA-BRITO, Reiko  y  RODRIGUEZ GUAJAN, Pakal B’alam. RELICS, ARTIFACTS, AND EDUCATIONAL TOOLS: CULTURAL HERITAGE CONSERVATION THROUGH EDUCATION AT THE KUMATZIM JAY MUSEUM AND EDUCATIONAL CENTER, TECPÁN GUATEMALA, CHIMALTENANGO, GUATEMALA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.3, pp.445-453. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562012000300007.

Although multicultural education is highlighted in the newly developed curriculum for public primary education in guatemala in line with the Peace Accords, the current status of formalized teaching of local history and themes on cultural identity in the classrooms remains minimal. in order to build a bridge between the local community members and the prehispanic history of the area, the Kumatzim Jay Museum and educational center Project was launched in tecpán Guatemala, Chimaltenango, Guatemala. Based on the current provisional exhibition, the project aims to construct an interactive museum and educational center, its collection forming the physical basis for local history and culture, which in turn will serve as the foundation for the teaching modules with an emphasis on heritage conservation. the modules focus on the subject areas of social sciences and Maya Mathematics. the results of the first phase are presented, which include artifact registry, analysis, and documentation as well as initial development of the modules. the project aims to generate an active dialogue between community members, educators, and archaeologists, articulating the concepts and meanings of relics, educational tools, and artifacts.

Palabras clave : Heritage conservation; public archaeology; primary education; tecpán Guatemala; Guatemala.
