The Ixil buried their loved ones who perished in the mountains while hiding from soldiers in clandestine graves during the country's bloody civil war. Forgotten by the state for centuries, the Ixil have recently come under the spotlight after a court found former dictator Efrain Rios Montt guilty of genocide for the ruthless scorched-earth policies used during his 17-month-long regime against the Ixil. The sentence was later overturned by a higher court. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
