Roberta Noku is a 4-year old Weenhayek indigenous girl in a community called Quebracho 2 near Villamontes, Bolivia. Earlier this year she and her parents and several other Weenhayek families participated in an "invasion" of the land, believing it is their traditional land. They were impatient with a government-run legal process that is likely to eventually give them the land anyway as part of resolving a long-standing conflict between indigenous families and cattle raisers. She said her doll, which has a dress made from a black plastic bag, is named "Barbi."
