    Picture Takers Beware

    by Gregball Written Apr 20, 2007

    I lived in Tactic ro 6 1/2 months as a misisonary for my church. The Q'eqchi' and Pocum' chi people are the natives in this area. There are still many that do not even know Spanish. There is a myth in this area that white people come and take pictures of all the children. They then take this pictures back to the united states and people choose from the pictures which child they want. The picture taker then comes back and steals/kidnaps the child and sells the child. So if you take pictures of kids some people may think their child is a target. Talk with the people. Let them know that you would like a picture to take home and show all your family and friends what the native people are like. Many will then be happy to let you take pictures of them in their native attire. : )
