« The world’s indigenous peoples were able to frame its combat in defense of their rights. To be recognized as distinct cultures and societies by states where they were trapped as ethnic minorities, was one of the first actions undertaken their newborn protest organizations, dating from the late 70’s and early 80’s of last century. Bolivia has not been on the sidelines of this struggle, in contrast, has lately given basic guidelines on how States should consider the diversity of their societies to expand the scope of protection and legal recognition of these complex realities that have come under schemes neocolonial domination. The adoption of the Constitution of the State in Bolivia and the declaration of a Multinational State, with a wide and extensive catalog of human rights of indigenous peoples built, many of them originating from major international instruments as the Declaration of Human Rights Indigenous Peoples, makes this text one of the most advanced in the world.
