"Mayan Indian leaders have vowed to "spiritually cleanse" an ancient site in Guatemala after U.S. President George W. Bush visits during his seven-day, five-nation tour of Latin America."

""That a person like (Bush) with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States, with the wars he has provoked is going to walk in our sacred lands is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture," Juan Tiney, director of a Mayan non-governmental organization with close ties to Mayan religious and political leaders, told The Associated Press."

I don't blame them one bit. Break out the smudge sticks!

You'd need a ginormous can of salt to sprinkle around that perimeter...

I know overall he is not very well liked there. I'm not sure what his need was to visit the mayan site but I know some are considered quite sacred.
