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

This book presentation tells the fascinating story of how indigenous Bolivians recovered and popularized histories of past rebellions, political models, and leaders, using them to build movements for rights, land, autonomy, and political power throughout the 20th century into today. The author will describe how movements tapped into centuries-old veins of oral history and memory to produce manifestos, booklets, and radio programs on histories of resistance, wielding them as tools to expand their struggles and radically transform society.
