MARI sheds light on the Maya for local elementary school students.

Marcello Canuto, left, director of the Middle American Research Institute (MARI), uses the light of his cell phone to show students from Homer A. Plessy Community School details on a scale model of the Mayan temple of Kukulkan, also known as “El Castillo,” from the Chichen Itza archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucatan. The students toured the “Faces of the Maya” exhibit at MARI on the Tulane University uptown campus on Monday (Sept. 28).
