The savage and deadly tradition of FGM in Latin America. The Embera are not the only indigenous group in Colombia who practise female genital mutilation. Blanca Lucila Andrade is a member of the Nasa indigenous group. "Our people have also been practising this," she says. "I have asked the elders and they say it is a very sacred ritual so that the women don't misbehave."
