The Five Hundred Year Rebellion: Indigenous Movements and the Decolonization of History in Bolivia

Benjamin Dangl

After centuries of colonial domination and a twentieth century riddled with dictatorships, indigenous peoples in Bolivia embarked upon a social and political struggle that would change the country forever. As part of that project activists took control of their own history, starting in the 1960s, by reaching back to oral traditions and then forward to new forms of print and broadcast media.

The colonizers will simply classify Native Americans as “leftists”.

Bolivia is being targeted by the Colonialists still. They have a bit of a reprieve because the USA tied up with Iran, Syria and Venezuela. If Venezuela crumbles and is absrobed back into the Empire to be ruled once again by the Whites, they will go after Bolivia.

They will claim they bring “freedom and liberty” to peoples ruled by a Dictator and will suggest Bolivia being filled with “Muslim terrorists”.

For Bolivia’s sake and for the Indigenous peoples there, let us hope Venezuela able to ward of the United States of America. Indeed it for the good of all that they remain strong in Bolivia. The last thing the world needs is a Bolsonaro 2 coming to power there.
