SIGN LANGUAGE, CULTURE, AND COMMUNITY IN A TRADITIONAL YUCATEC
MAYA VILLAGE
According to Robert E Johnson, the analysis of sign language amongst members of the
relatively high number of deaf people in the Yucatan Maya village has formed a community. The
deaf community is in no way marginalized and they are able to access resources equally, just like
other members of the village. These form an informative basis that helps integrate the different
aspects of deafness within the Yucatan Maya village that was accelerated by birth defects
propagated by marriage practices. These have led various researchers to note that deaf people
create communities based on their deafness forming modes of communication in order to gain
access to economic benefits. The structures of these communities are based on three key aspects:
Communities of communication, Ethnic identity and communities of solidarity.
According to the communities of communication, the deaf people find it hard to
communicate with hearing people and instead feel comfortable communicating with other deaf
people in sign language. Moreover, they prefer using ASL rather than the English interpretation of
sign language which leads to the formation of these deaf communities to provide access to societal
resources. Henceforth, the communities also develop patterns of behavior simply referred to as
ethnicity which is bound by two features. They include paternal and patrimonial character traits.
Whereby paternal refers to those born with deafness and patrimony associates itself with sets of
behavior that the deaf people are accustomed to.
