Peru’s Dirty War Victims

In this Oct. 29, 2014 photo, Gregoria Huaman poses for a portrait in her flower covered hat, common among women in the area, after burying her brother in law, Felix Huama, in Huallhua in Peru’s Ayahuanco region. Felix Huaman and his brother-in-law Narcizo Cusiche were killed on June 14, 1990 while defending the town as members of the citizen self-defense force, so that villagers could escape from Shining Path militants, but their remains were only recently exhumed. Hundreds of such cases, most until now barely registered, are coming to light as forensic anthropologists methodically unearth victims of Peru’s 1980-2000 dirty war absent government fanfare.
