There's really a lot to know and learn about the present moment in Bolivian history and politics where the notion of decolonization is a grounding political, economic, and philosophical concept. With President Evo Morales' rise to power in 2006, decolonization occupies center stage, including the establishment of a Ministry of Decolonization within the Ministry of Culture headed by Aymaran Vice-President Félix Cárdenas Aguilar.
Benjamin Dangl's book, The Five Hundred Year Rebellion: Indigenous Movements and the Decolonization of History in Bolivia, is a text cited in another related story also by Dangl titled, "Bolivia’s Decolonization Mission."
None of us has been untouched by colonization that intellectuals like Walter Mignolo and others refer to as the flipside of "modernity." It's great to see people like Félix Cárdenas Aguilar give voice to this history and continuing narrative that today is otherwise referred to as "neoliberalism." A right to identity and to a life of dignity is minimally what should result from this deep engagement with decolonization and decolonial projects.
