The future of indians in Costa Rica

Guaimi indians Aurelia Garcia, left, and her daughter Analeida, 6, of Panama, ask for money on the streets of Alajuela, Costa Rica, Friday, June 2, 2006. Garcia said she has little hope for her daughter's future, because the government doesn't help the indigenous community. Indigenous children in Central America and Mexico live in precarious conditions and the authorities aren't doing enough to change it, according to Juan Jose Ortiz, assessor for Latin America and the Caribbean on indigenous issues for UNICEF .(AP Photo/Kent Gilbert)
