Living in Iowa, Denese Becker was haunted by memories of her Mayan
quest for her lost identity in Guatemala turns into a searing journey of
awakening that reveals a genocidal crime and the still-unmet cry for
justice from the
survivors. In Discovering Dominga, Denese's journey home is both a
voyage of selfdiscovery
that permanently alters her relationship to her American family and a
political awakening that sheds light on an act of genocide against this
largest indigenous majority.
