Maternal Ancestry
Eva Longoria (b. 1975) Born Eva Jacqueline Bastón Longoria, Eva Longoria has made her mark on the world in numerous ways as an American actress, producer, director, activist, and businesswoman. She first hit America’s radar when she portrayed Isabella Braña on the CBS daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless. From there, she appeared in multiple movies such as Over Her Dead Body (2008), For Greater Glory (2012), Frontera (2014), and Overboard (2018), starred in NBC sitcom Telenovela, and served as an executive producer for the Lifetime series Devious Maids.

Eva Longoria is most known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on the hit television series Desperate Housewives. From this role, she gained both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, as well as a lot of recognition. She was named one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women by several publications, including People magazine, and was asked to be the face of both L’Oréal and New York & Co. Additionally, in 2011, she topped the Forbes list of highest-paid TV actresses.

One of the best things about Eva Longoria is her penchant for philanthropy. She is the founder of two charities: Eva’s Heroes, which helps developmentally disabled children, and the Eva Longoria Foundation, which aims to confront Latino poverty. She also supports a wide variety of organizations including: Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, OmniPeace, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Stroke Association, Project HOME, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Momia Juanita (c. 1450) Momia Juanita, Spanish for “Mummy Juanita”, is the mummified remains of a young teenage girl from the Incan period in 15th century Peru. Legend has it that she was chosen -- along with other young women in the region of Arequipa -- to be sacrificed to Pachamama or Mother Earth. According to experts, Juanita was killed during the Incan sacrificial ritual of Capacocha, which took place 21,000 feet above sea level on the volcano Ampato.

The Incans believed that Capacocha was extremely important to their survival: it would calm the Pachamama’s natural disasters and guarantee a good harvest. Thus, being chosen for sacrifice was seen as a great privilege. Juanita’s remains stayed on the summit of Ampato for many years, preserved in the snowcap, until the nearby Sabancaya volcano erupted. The ashes of the volcano melted the snow on Ampato, and Juanita’s remains slid down the mountainside and waited for discovery.

In 1995, the American archaeologist John Reinhard and his assistant, Miguel Zárate were shocked to find the almost perfectly preserved body of a young girl. They decided to call her Juanita. To clarify, although she is known worldwide as the Juanita Mummy, the Incas never practiced mummification. Juanita’s mummy-like preservation was actually due to the low temperatures of the Ampato.

Juanita’s remains continue to prove their scientific and historical significance to this day. For example, before Juanita, there was no proof that the Incans sacrificed women as well as men in their rituals. Also, scientists recently discovered that she died from a blow to the head and changed her diet a year before her sacrifice. Her remains can be visited at the Santuarios Andinos Museum in the heart of Arequipa, Peru.
