In the name of Evo

In 2006, Evo Morales became Bolivia’s first indigenous president in over 500 years after the Spanish conquest, thus starting a new era in Bolivian history.
Evo - as Morales is called by his supporters - introduced his Andean cosmovision into Bolivian political and social life, ranging from constitutional reform to economic policy (named "evoconomy"), in order to enhance the role of the state both in economy and in the society.
Quechua, Aymara, Guaraní native indigenous communities were recognized constitutional rights along with European origin populations, all enjoying the same status within the Bolivian state, like different colours of the same aguayo - the typical Andean multi-coloured and multi-purpose cloth.
In a mix of Bolivarian recalls and hints of grandeur, tradition and modernity blend, and so do social inequalities and richness in dignity, material poverty and pride for their identity. The poorest South American country with the highest percentage of indigenous population started its march in opposite direction to the dominant tides.
From the Southern hemisphere, the North's celebrations for neoliberalism look far distant. And Bolivia dream big.
