Transito, 91
Cayambe, Ecuador

In her country, Transito is a famous human rights symbol; she is the "Rosa Parks of Ecuador." After the conquest by the Spanish, the indigenous people were all but stripped of their culture and forced to serve as indentured servants in the hacienda system. At fourteen, Transito's parents married her off to keep a hacienda owner from molesting her. At eighteen, she spoke out against the owner and was sent to jail for five months. In the last 10-20 years, there has been a steady return of pride to the indigenas of Ecuador. (Quechua)
