Christine Eber lived for a year with a family in San Pedro Chenalhó in 1987, doing fieldwork for her PhD in Anthropology. She shared daily life with women and their families, witnessing the difficulties they faced. It changed her life. Now, as a respected anthropologist, she continues to work with the indigenous women of Chiapas, visiting communities on a regular basis and supporting the woman-organized weaving collectives. Her most recent book is The Journey of a Tzotzil-Maya Woman: Pass Well Over the Earth, which she co-authored with Antonia. She lives in Las Cruces, New Mexico, with her husband, Mike, and dog Sami.
