1 Aq'ab'al Fire Ceremony: Project

CCA's 115th Commencement Ceremonies included an alumni performance by Katherin Canton (BFA Community Arts 2011) and Mariana Moscoso. "Toj + Tijax: A Ritual of Myth Making" leads this year’s commencement class into new beginnings through a sacred fire ceremony performed on 1 Aq’ab’al (Saturday, April 16, 2022), a pivotal day of change in the Chol’qij, or the Mayan spiritual calendar.
