This talk engages a case of security-making and security practice from the indigenous highlands of north-western Guatemala. Tracing connections between paramilitaries formed during the civil war in Guatemala and the current security committees active in a Mam-Maya municipality, I discuss how security is now deeply imbricated in everyday life from politics and generational relationships to households and gender dynamics.
