Rate this:
In the dense Paraguayan jungle of 1896, a three year-old girl survives the massacre of her Ache family by white settlers. The captive girl is baptized Damiana and becomes an object of scientific interest. Her body is photographed and measured as part of racial studies conducted by Argentine and German anthropologists, and this continues even after her untimely death at the age of 14... One hundred years later Damiana&́#x80;™s people, the Ache, recover her remains, scattered between Argentina&́#x80;™s La Plata Museum and a hospital in Berlin. They give her a traditional burial in their ancestral homeland. For the Ache people of today, Damiana Kryygi has become the embodiment of hope and a symbol of unity in the struggle to recover their lands.
