Rise Up!

I don't think Indigenous people in North America realize how fortunate we are in comparison to Indigenous people internationally. The extent to which our political rights are recognized, are light years ahead of other people.

However, check this political shift happening in Bolivia under the direction of Evo Morales, their first Indigenous president.

  1. You should watch "Cocalero." Pretty good documentary about Evo's rise to presidency. The film glorifies the Natives and makes the non-Natives look especially bad, but it's still an interesting watch none the less.
