Rigoberta Menchú is an activist from Guetamala who has been fighting for indigenous rights since the early 70s. She was forced to leave her country so many times, or she basically had to leave herself because of the death threats. A great portion of her life has passed in countries outside of Guetamala. In 1992 she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and she won it. Originally from the K’iche origin, Rigoberta fought for not only “K’iche”s, but also for all the natives of Latin America.
