ission Statement
The Julian Cho Society (JCS) is a non-profit, non-governmental membership organization dedicated to the conservation of the environments and indigenous lands of southern Belize. We aim to carry forward the vision and legacy of the late Julian Cho, a renowned advocate for the rainforests and indigenous peoples of southern Belize. Following Cho, the JCS regards environmental conservation and the struggle for Maya land rights to be inextricably linked.
Aims of the Julian Cho Society:
  • To develop and disseminate programs that promote the ethical, social, and
    intellectual development of the indigenous peoples of southern Belize
  • To facilitate research that contributes to greater understanding and
    appreciation of the history, cultures, and environment of the Toledo District
  • To promote the principles and values that Julian Cho fostered as leader of
    the Maya movement by advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples in Belize
    and contributing to the struggle for justice, democracy, and sustainable development
