My topic is Rigoberta Menchu Tum. For information on this magnificent young woman, click below on Background. Rigoberta Tum is a wonderful and extremely successful. She won the Nobel Peace Prize at a very young age. She is a victim of the Guatemalan Civil War, which has raged on for more than thirty years. Rigoberta has turned her poverty and violence-filled life into beauty, truth, and a search for peace for her people.
