Belize Telemedia's 2012 telephone directory is available to the public and was officially launched on March 29, 2012 with a grand unveiling of this year's cover. This year's edition highlights the Maya Deer dance -as the company joins in with the rest of Belize in celebrating the 2012 Mayan Calendar. As the magic and spotlight is placed on an integral part of Belize’s rich ethnic and cultural makeup, BTL is elated to highlight the Maya.
For centuries, the Mayas have looked forward to 2012 as an important time for rebirth, reflections and renewal as one cosmic cycle ends and another begins. 2012 is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in acknowledging the beauty of one of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world, while celebrating the future with a culture that has been successfully predicting it for centuries.
This year’s cover gives a rare look into the vibrant and mysterious Maya Deer Dance. This spiritual dance, although ancient, tells a tale that is important to societies, even today, as it focuses a great deal on the significant relationship between humanity and nature. This dance is sacred and is performed only on special occasions mostly by the Q’eqchi Maya.
On the cover page along with the Maya Deer Dancer, four tabs are available with little detail of what is inside the book. The cover picture of the Maya Deer Dance was photographed by Telemedia’s PR Representative, Ms. Denise Vanzie at the Julian Cho School in Toledo.
Other sections that compliment the directory include the time zone map, hurricane page, kiddie’s page, The Belizean Calendar of Events, and a special on Belize’s Cultural Arts pages which provides readers with highlights and insight into some of our country’s rich cultural arts.
