Reviews of books read long ago “I, Rigoberta Menchu”

I read “I, Rigoberta Menchu,” a memoir about a Guatemalan Indian woman and her culture, some 25 plus years, ago after meeting Rigoberta in New Orleans.
This woman’s culture has been slaughtered by the tens of thousands (I recently read 250,000 Indians have been massacred). The culture she comes from is one of the kindest, most accepting people to ever grace this planet. They consider love beautiful, no matter who the couple is, so they are accepting of gays.
I wish I could remember all that I learned about this culture. Rigoberta stands out as a woman who probably would have been an introvert, but she was chosen to represent her people in the UN and so she was forced to become a public person. I remember that she was joining up with other Indigenous people all over the world.
I hope Rigoberta is still with us, taking her stories directly to the people of the world!
