Tomb of the Unknown Native

The picture in the May issue shows the Tomb of the Unknown Native at the city cemetery in Punta Arenas, Chile. This monument is dedicated to the indigenous people of Patagonia. Locals who visit the cemetery offer prayers to “Indiecito” (little Indian) and leave tokens of appreciation for prayers answered.

Thirty-six readers sent in correct answers, and GARY JAMES of Costa Mesa, California, won the drawing. We thank John Shank of Sacramento for the photo.
