A young indigenous woman from Yucatan state flew on the $550 million presidential plane to Mexico City at the invitation of President Enrique Peña Nieto, who gave her a personal tour of the official Los Pinos residence, the Office of the President said.

Fatima Chay Chi told the president about her wish to visit Mexico City during an event staged by the National Commission for the Development of Indian Peoples and the Fundacion Patrimonio Indigena MX, which is headed by Spanish singer Miguel Bose, for the signing of an agreement to provide support to indigenous children and teenagers.
