Ashaninka Indian girls play soccer on Sept. 30 in Kitamaronkani, Pichari district, Peru. The Ashaninka Indian world has rarely been peaceful. Peruís Ashaninka Indians share the world’s top coca-growing valley with drug traffickers, rebels, illegal loggers and, now, an increased military presence. During Peruís 1980-2000 internal conflict, Shining Path rebels overran their lands and slaughtered them wholesale. (Rodrigo Abd/Associated Press)
