The king of dyes and the dye of kings, indigo—that amazing blue dye—is native to Guatemala. Although it is a common belief that the Spanish brought indigo (añil) to the Americas with the conquest, there is pre-Hispanic anthropological evidence that tells us otherwise. This evidence demonstrates that the Mayas used indigo to create Mayan blue, a pigment that they developed in the late pre-Classic period, 1900 BC to 200 AD. The color can be found in pottery, murals and archaeological remains throughout Mesoamerica.
