The Mayas today inhabit two specific regions of México. They are both the Lowlands and the Highlands. The lowlands represent 30,000 Chontal Indians, 200-300 Lacandon Indians, 40,000 Chol Indians, and 400,000 Mayans of the Yucatan, Campeche, and Quintana Roo areas. The highlands people represent 100,000 Tzotils, 60,000 Tzetals, and 30,000 Mames, as well as 15,000 Tojolabals. All of these diverse groups make up an area that has extreme cultural and historical wisdom (Bernal 1980).
but it's true that they knew that their end would come in 2012, meaning that their traditions and religions would die.
