An Inca girl mummy was officially named Saphi on Monday during an Andean sutiyaqi, or naming ritual, in Bolivia.

The ceremony took place at the National Museum of Archeology in La Paz and was led by President Luis Arce and Vice President David Choquehuanca during the commemoration of the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples.

"It is going to be called Saphi," Choquehuanca said in his speech, in which he also said that her repatriation two years ago from the United States was "very important" for the return of artifacts to their rigthful place.

The girl is linked to the funerary towers, known as chullpas, that were built for notable people in pre-Columbian times in the Andean region.
