“The Aché Indians: Genocide in Paraguay” (IWGIA Document 11) documented the extermination of the Aché in Paraguay up to September 1972. At that time, a public scandal broke out in Paraguay over the Indian situation. The authorities promised an inquiry, one man was arrested, and there was hope of a change. But today this genocide is still going on. The promised inquiry has never been realized; the man arrested has been released and is out manhunting again.
