El problema del chamanismo en las religiones prehispánicas de Mesoamérica: el caso maya
The article investigates the idea, suggested by number of authors in the 1990s, that shamanism was an important part of life in the pre-Columbian Maya societies. Kucyba analyzes the evidence of shamanism in past and modern Maya societies and then compares it with some existing models of shamanism. He dismisses the evidence for shamanism's prevalence as inadequate and argues that the term 'shamanism' describes a different kind of socio-political organization than what the Maya had.
