This chapter addresses Maya political and economic organization just prior to the Spanish Conquest in Yucatan, Belize, and to some extent, Peten. The nature of native Maya states and geopolitical units is explored, as is the Precolumbian Maya economy. A summary is provided of what we know from archaeology about Belize communities in the sixteenth century, with a focus on Tipu and Lamanai.

Keywords:   Spanish Conquest, Maya, Tipu, Lamanai, Yucatan, Belize, Peten, tribute, warfare, human sacrifice
