Description: The materials in the Ruben Reina papers pertaining to the Peten region of Guatemala are found primarily in Series II of the collection. This series consists of extensive ethnohistory materials including oral histories and photocopies of documents from numerous local community archives, both within and outside the Peten region, the Archivo General de Centroamerica (AGCA), and the Archivo General de Indias (AGI) in Seville. The material dates from the 15th century through the 1960s. Reina copied the material with portable photocopy and photographic equipment under poor conditions. The series includes 5 subseries: Encomiendas y Tierras; Libros Antiguos de Cofradias; Ethnohistorical Data; Peten Court Records; and Transcriptions. Each section contains a description of the conditions under which the materials were collected and the provenance of the materials, including whether the materials are still in existence. The Mayan langauges identified above should be regarded only as probable given the locations from which documents originated. Additional relevant materials may be found in Series VI, VII, VIII, XI, and XII.
