The Lacandons are indigenous peoples of La Selva Lacandona in Chiapas, Mexico. They refer to themselves as the Hach Winik or True People. The Lacandon culture has lived in the Lacandon Rainforest for hundreds of years. It is said the Lacandons are direct descendants of the classical civilizations of Palenque, Yaxchilan and Bonampak.
