Chupa Pou, Paraguay, April 19, 2009--A few of the approximately 1,500 remaining Ache indigenous people play on the banks of the Jejui River. A traditional hunter-gatherer tribe, the Ache were hunted by white men until the 1970s--nearly to extinction--according to Paraguay's National Commission for Truth and Justice. (Learn more about the European colonization of South America.)

April 19 was recognized as the International Day of American Indigenous People.
