Mayan prejudice is a huge problem in Mexico and Central America. As recently as the late 1980s there was Mayan genocide in Central America that led to the deaths of as many as 200,000 people. Natives in the traditional Mayan areas have been marginalized much the same way that Natives in North America have.
Not that that really has anything to do with the film.
