No Donation Drive this year!

Due to several years of challenges with customs clearance Positive Legacy will NOT host a donation drive on Jam Cruise 14. For cruisers that would like to support our Belize based project please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Deer Dance Campaign in lieu of bringing school supplies.

Deer Dance is an important heritage practice of the Maya communities of southern Belize. The Maya have been intimately connected to the rainforests for hundreds of years. This connection is reinforced through the ecological practices of daily life, as well as through the celebrations and rituals that mark the changing of the seasons, the passing of time and the traditions of Maya heritage.

The Deer Dance tells the story of the relationship between Maya people and the land. Inevitable changes are sweeping through indigenous communities in Belize and around the world; many community leaders are concerned that the young people will not have an opportunity to learn the Deer Dance. The number of young people who know how to dance and play the music for this elaborate tradition is dwindling, and passing on the Deer Dance is vital to this vibrant culture. A $13,750 grant from Positive Legacy will fund not only the Deer Dance in Santa Cruz, Belize this coming year, but also the documentation of the dance in audio, video and workbook form.

And if you'd like to see the Deer Dance in person, join us for the Day of Service & Celebration in Belize on January 8th. 150 people from the village of Santa Cruz, the epicenter of the Deer Dance project, will be taking a 4 hour bus trip to join us in Belize City and sharing the Deer Dance with us.
