Over a century after the death of a 14-year-old girl, her community’s descendants and human rights organizations fight to provide her with proper Aché death rites. The child had been kidnapped by European settlers in southern Paraguay in the late 19th century. The contemporary struggle highlights the tragic relationships between colonialists and Indigenous populations, documented not just by her being taken and raised by her parents’ killers but also by her eventually being sent to an asylum where she dies of meningitis and never receives a proper burial. Still, the activists’ efforts to redress such historical wrongs offer a hopeful vision of the future of human rights.

Co-presented by the Consulate General of Argentina in New York and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian
