RIP Baji

Pity the Pacahuara, a tiny indigenous tribe of the Bolivian Amazon – they are almost extinct.

According to a Twitter post from Wigberto Rivero, an anthroplogist at Bolivia’s Universidad Mayor de San Andres: “Baji, one of the last Pacahuara women of the Bolivian Amazon, died in her village, Tujure. Her people are in danger of extinction.”

Baji, 57, died of stomach cancer.

Now there are just four Pacahuara left.
