Evo Morales on the Emergence of Bolivia's Indigenous Movement

Common knowledge I hope, is the fact that Bolivia has the first indigenous elected head of state - Evo Morales. While Morales is often linked to Chavez and Venezuela in the U.S. media (and rightly so to some extent, as they do have some goals in common), he truly represents a unique and historic situation in what he is trying to accomplish in Bolivia. If you haven't heard him speak, or if you are unfamiliar with what's going on, check out this video which offers a number of clips of Morales speaking, arranged with pictures of life in Bolivia, all to the tune of some traditional Andes music.
Viva la Resistencia!!!

    It is amazing how here in America everyone tries so hard to celebrate their "heritage" and yet suppress the indigenous peoples for the same thing.
    A truly moving video.

    These are interesting times. It seems that only in the U.S. only certain heritages may be celebrated. Muslims are now openly chastised, and illegal immigrants must live in hiding in many places. Yet everyone espouses with the joys of celebrating cultural diversity. I don't think it's all peaches and cream in Bolivia either, but power seems to be returning to the appropriate hands.
