In his speech, he asserted that “it is important to maintain the unity of our indigenous peoples, unity of brothers and sisters, we cannot subordinate personal and individual interests to the collective interests and interests of the great majority.”
“When you listen to those voices, brothers, never forget those great leaders who fought and did not give in to these gifts and who kept the flame of the indigenous peoples alive until they achieved all the benefits established in the Political Constitution of the State,” said the leader.
On the other hand, he addressed the need for the congress of indigenous communities to delve into issues related to the political and social context of the country, amid the divisive efforts of the external and internal oligarchy.
The Bolivian head of state also urged that the best men and women be elected to represent the indigenous peoples and continue in the struggle to consolidate the rights achieved for their benefit.
