Articles of Incorporation

as a

Non-Profit Corporation

for the

Mayan Esteem Project


The name of the corporation shall be the Mayan Esteem Project which shall exist into perpetuity as a non-profit corporation.

The lawful purpose and mission of the Mayan Esteem Project will be the recovery of stolen artifacts and restoration of a pyramid site at Chilon, Chiapas, Mexico, working under all appropriate and necessary permits, licenses, laws and regulations of the State of Texas, the United States of America and the United States of Mexico.

As a cultural project the Mayan Esteem Project may also involve itself in activities related to sites of cultural interest adjacent to the desecrated pyramid site such as educational outreach and other archaeological sites.
