Laguna Lachuá

Laguna Lachuá is a large pristine cenote lake deemed a national park in 1976 and a Ramsar site in 2006. The “Eco-region Lachuá” around the lake is home to Q’eqchi’ Maya families, many of whom live off grid and rely on production of cacao, honey, cardamom, corn and other crops for their livelihoods. Cacao farmers are organized into three certified organic community associations, ASODIRP, ASOSELNOR, and K’ATB’ALPOM, each with its own fermentation and drying operation. Lachuá communities have planted over 245 hectares of new cacao since 2014 and improved financial literacy in cacao production through projects supported by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), FUNDALACHUA, and FundaSistemas, with the shared goal of protecting the Laguna and improving their quality of life

Origins

Erin Currier

Part portraiture, part collage constructed of disinherited consumer "waste" collected in nearly fifty countries, part sociopolitical archive, but wholly humanist, Currier's work has been featured in numerous solo shows, including a major solo exhibition at the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Embassy in Washington, DC.
