At one point during the Suzukis stay with the Suruwaha, the tribe apparently decided that two children who did not appear to be developing properly should die. The tribe then buried the children alive anyway, as was the custom, Suzuki says. One, a girl named Hakani, survived the ordeal but was subsequently left to die by starvation. Hakani holds a photo of herself as child, when she still lived with the Suruwaha, on March 7. In , the Suzukis decided to take Hakani, then 5 years old, for treatment themselves.
There, she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, a treatable condition.
The Suzukis nursed her back to health and then attempted to return her to her tribe. The prosecutor also noted that the Suzukis had never sought the requisite authorization to live with the tribe.
Elsewhere in the report, Almeida lamented that the Suzukis, having encouraged a Suruwaha man to get medical treatment for his chronic pain, kept him from resolving the problem the way he originally intended, which was to commit suicide. Suzuki agrees that taking Hakani back to the tribe one year later disrupted the Suruwaha worldview — although she considers that a positive development.
Because of what happened to Hakani, Suzuki says, other parents began to seek help. In , two Suruwaha families requested medical assistance for their children. The missionaries were summoned before a congressional hearing in December to explain their role in the affair.

The conversation about child killing in indigenous tribes goes back far enough that it is now possible to discuss the issue with some of the children themselves. I was terrified. Everything was so weird. In May , Kanhu gave an impassioned speech during a congressional hearing on disability rights. We have to respect it.
