This chapter examines the conflict and accommodation in Ch'orti' Maya ethnopolitics. It explores the Ch'orti' Maya “recovery of ancestral lands” in Western Honduras, particularly the emerging institutional context for claiming, allocating, and managing land, as well as adjudicating subsequent disputes. The findings indicate that the political success of the National Council of Indigenous Ch'orti' Maya of Honduras (CONIMCHH) as a social movement has fundamental challenges in managing people and resources.

Keywords:   Ch'orti' Maya, ethnopolitics, ancestral lands, land disputes, CONIMCHH, Honduras
