We know that Bolivia is on the minds of so many people in our community. We are passing along this article on the current situation in Bolivia written by Jacquelyn Kovarik, one of Dragons current South America semester instructors. The article is titled, Bolivia’s Anti-Indigenous Backlash is Growing.
Jacquelyn wrote this article while the group was participating in a rural homestay in Tocaña, an Afro-Bolivian community in the Yungas region north of La Paz. The group has now safety rerouted to Peru.
Jacquelyn, thank you for so skillfully guiding your students through a tumultuous and historic moment in Bolivia’s history, all the while crafting a thoughtful journalistic piece and keeping our community informed on this complex situation!
