Maka Indian chief Without a Male Heir

On April 19, indigenous people throughout Brazil, Paraguay and Venezuela, gathered to celebrate American Indigenous International Day. Tribes held ceremonies with dancing, others set up stations in nearby tourist locations to educate travelers about indigenous people and their beliefs.

For one chief though, it wasn’t all celebration. Andres Chemhei, 65-years-old, is the leader of one of Paraguay’s 20 surviving indigenous tribes. He has three daughters, but no son. For this Maka Indian Tribe leader that means no male heir.

Without a son, his family’s ancestral rule must come to an end, and according to Paraguayan law, a democratic election for a new leader of his 1,500-member tribe will happen upon his death, according to the Associated Press.
