A singer and leader for Indigenous rights in Latin America

The World

Sara Curruchich is from the Mayan Kaqchikel community in Guatemala. And she's the first indigenous Guatemalan singer-songwriter to sing in Kaqchikel for a mass audience. She's taken her message to some of Guatemala’s most rural areas and to the UN. We preview her song “Junam” from her new album “Mujer Indígena” (Indigenous Woman).
