This paper compares and contrasts the lives and ideas of Rigoberta Menchu and Ernesto 'Che' Guevara. Both are/were leaders of populist movements, but each brought his/her own perspective to the task of working actively for political change. In studying two narratives of their lives, "The Motorcycle Diaries" and "I, Rigoberta Menchu", the reader learns that their ideas and their actions stem from the profound experience of injustice that both encountered in different ways - Guevara on a motorcycle trip around South America and Mench through the experience of life as an indigenous person in Guatemala.
