The 4th Chapter focuses on FOMMA and Ajchowen, two foundational Maya women’s theater troupes in Mexico and Guatemala, and their productions. It argues their plays re-envision women’s roles as critical to the future of indigenous peoples. The discussion concludes that both theater collectives underscore a need for political autonomy.
