Ricardo Falla, anthropologist and priest, has dedicated his life to assisting and chronicling the lives of Mayas living under political duress in Guatemala. At considerable risk, Falla has spent over half a decade living with Mayas in the “Communities of Population in Resistance.” This chapter presents an interview of him, weaving together the morality and the practicality of what may more accurately be called a life's passion than ethnography.
