What is a ‘kin’?


A ‘kin’ is a Mayan day. The Tzolkin is a count of 260 different kin or days. There’s a nice covergence in language between the Maya and English, that ‘kin’ to us means family or community. It’s much better to think of the 260 kin not as a span of days, but a gathering of tribes, a web of connected tribesmen.

We are each born of one of these days and represent it with our lifetime. We interact with one other in the energy of our birth. We each have an interrelated part.
