  • Descrição: Rigoberta Menchu arrived in Paris in 1982, like many people who had left Latin American dictatorships for France. She was in the company of Marie Tremblay who had collaborated with the ORPA guerrilla group, though Menchu herself was not part of ORPA. Menchu's testimony was started as an interview, and later developed into a book. Menchu is a representative of indigenous peoples, and her fame has to some extent obscured her role as a representative. There is a danger of that indigenous peoples' demands could become a simple fashion, though Menchu can also play a useful role as an intermediary between cultures.
