Abstract

Carlos Urqueita—an Aymaran painter, struggling for words; “I feel . . I feel . .” Suddenly he straightens up, abandons his search for words, raises the sleeves of his faded sweatshirt, and flexes his biceps like a body builder in peak form. “That’s what I feel like,” he says. “I feel that the Aymara nation has exerted itself finally and stood up for its rights. I feel that we are strong now and can never go back to being pushed around and ignored and neglected. We are willing to give our new president a chance, but he needs to understand that if he fails us, we will do the same to him.
