Q'anjob'al - Settlements

Q'anjob'al villages reflect the agricultural character of the people. Settlements usually consist of a central urban center that is utilized for trade and regional government; however, most Indians live in dispersed households near their fields. Houses generally consist of one-room dwellings made of pole walls and thatch roofs. Many Q'anjob'al construct sweat baths adjacent to the main structure.
