Mayan society: the Mayans were the most important of the cultured native peoples of North America, both in the degree of their civilization and in population and resources, formerly occupying a territory of about 60,000 square miles, including the whole of the peninsula of Yucatan, Southern Mexico, together with the adjacent portion of Northern Guatemala, and still constituting the principal population of the same region outside of the larger cities.The most important tribes or nations, after the Maya proper, were the Quiche and Cakchiquel of Guatemala.The king usually acted on the advice of a council of lords and priests.The lords alone were military commanders, and each lord and inferior official had for his support the produce of a certain portion of land which was cultivated in common by the people.
The lower priesthood was not hereditary, but was appointed through the high priest.
At Izapa carvings depict gods that were the precursors of the Classic deities and at Kaminaljuyu glyphs on stelea foreshadow the Maya writing system. The central region includes the southern lowlands, from Tabasco in the Northwest to Belize and Guatemala's Motagua River region in the southeast.
Here is where the Classic Maya flourished, along the Usumacinta River and throughout the Peten.
Culturally the area is divided into three sections: the northern, central and southern regions.
The earliest evidence of the Maya civilization is found in the southern region.
