San Juan Chamula is a municipio (municipality) and township in the Mexican state of Chiapas. It is situated some 10 km (. mi) from San Cristóbal de las Casas. As of 2010, the municipality had a total population of 76,941.
Chamula is one of the centers of Mayan culture in highland Chiapas and has had strained and peculiar relations with the established authorities of the Roman Catholic Church and the government of the country. It was one of a number of towns involved in the Zapatista Movement under Subcommandante Marcos in the years just after this picture was taken. The Tzotzil are an indigenous Maya people of the Central Chiapas Highlands in Southern Mexico.
The Chiapas Highlands or the Central Highlands of Chiapas (Spanish: Los Altos de Chiapas), is a geographic, sociocultural and administrative region located in Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico.

Three rows of perhaps a dozen candles each were placed in front of the chicken, all were fully blazing. A bottle of Coca-Cola sat to the right.

A young man was kneeling next to the woman, and an older man with a mustache took up the same position on the other side. All three adults were rocking back and forth, chanting prayers in Tzotzil. The church of John the Baptist in San Pedro Chamula in the Central Highlands of Chiapas is an epicenter of traditional Maya and Catholic syncretism. As I walked through it, there were perhaps a dozen two to eight person groups of Tzotzil Maya worshiping as they knelt on the floor of the church’s nave, praying in their native tongue, and making offerings of bottles of soda, a liquor from this region called pox, and animals.
Both Chamula and Zinacantán economies are mostly based on agriculture, commerce, crafts, and increasing out-migration.
