Cruzoob Maya with General Juan Bautista Chuc and Commander Aniceto Tzul (Dzul) meeting with Lieutenant Governor of Yucatan Teodocio Canto to sign a peace treaty to end the Caste War, 1884

In 1884 the Yucatec Maya who belong to the Cruzo'ob Maya group with General and Secretary of the Maya Cross Juan B. Chuc and the commanders Aniceto Dzul, Crescencio Dzib, captains Luis Naal, José Chan and Esteban Nuñez accompanied by José Domingo Andrade met in Belize to engage in peace talks with the representatives of Yucatan in 1884.

The Maya Yucatec group known as the Cruzoob Maya with General Juan Bautista Chuc and Commander Aniceto Tzul(Dzul) second in command meeting with Lieutenant Governor of Yucatan Teodocio Canto sign a peace treaty in Belize between the Masewal (Maya Yucatec) and the Dzuloob (Spanish) to end the Caste War "Guerra Social Maya." During the celebrations following the signing, Teodocio Canto who was drunk disrespected Aniceto Tzul. Canto got into a fist fight, tearing Tzul's shirt. Tzul tore up the sign peace treaty. Canto's written apology was not accepted by the top Maya General Crescencio Poot(Pott) and the hostilities continue.

Note: For the Maya Yucatec there was no border since they viewed the British and Spanish as Foreigner/invaders in their Maya land. The Cruzoob Maya had a Maya State called Chan Santa Cruz which encompassed all of the southern and central parts of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. With associated, buffer and splinter groups, this state was the core of a broader indigenist liberation movement that controlled virtually all of the old Iz'a territories. These territories include the eastern, central and southern portions of the Yucatán peninsula, extending from Cape Catoche south to include what is now northwestern Belize and northeastern Guatemala from 1850-1901. Today many descendants of the Cruzoob Maya rebels are still in Belize. While in Quintana Roo the identity is more stronger.
