Rigoberta Menchu was commissioned by The Smithsonian Associates to commemorate a 1993 event honoring the Year of the Indigenous Peoples' Rights. Carlo Mejia's Mayan influence and interpretation for this offset lithograph were befitting of this event because Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchu, a Quiche-Mayan human rights activist from Guatemala, was the guest.

Carlo Mejia (b. San Salvador, El Salvador, 1945) is a surrealist painter who draws on stories passed down to him by his grandparents when he was growing up in San Salvador. Mejia often uses non-traditional media to symbolize the myths and stories of his Mayan heritage.
