National day for indigenous people?
Yes… the indigenous population in Bolivia (as well as in Peru), is quite large, and they’ve gained a lot of respect with time… This is a day to celebrate and honor their original culture. Similar thing happens in Brazil, when the national day of celebration (of the indigenous culture) is April 19th. I had a post about that, when we were back in Brazil, about the Fulni-ô tribe…. :o) Lots of learning, right? It’s the goal! Thanks Gilly, for stopping by, and for your interest! 😮
