    is a country in South America located at the Andes mountains . It has a Native American population which mixed Spanish cultural elements with their ancestors traditions . The Spanish-speaking population mainly follows the Western customs. The cultural development of what is present-day Bolivia is divided into three distinct periods: pre-Columbian, colonial, and republican. Important archaeological ruins, gold and silver ornaments, stone monuments, ceramics, and weavings remain from several important pre-Columbian cultures. Major ruins include Tiwanaku Samaipata Incallajta , and Iskanwaya . The country abounds in other sites that are difficult to reach and hardly explored by archaeologists. The Spanish brought their own tradition of religious art which, in the hands of local indigenous and mestizo builders and artisans, developed into a rich and distinctive style of architecture, painting, and sculpture known as "Mestizo Baroque." The colonial period produced not only the paintings of Perez de Holguin, Flores, Bitti, and others but also the works of skilled, but unknown, stonecutters, woodcarvers, goldsmiths, and silversmiths. An important body of native baroque religious music of the colonial period was recovered in recent years and has been performed internationally to wide acclaim since 1994. Bolivian artists of stature in the 20th century include, among others

Over half of the population is full-blooded indigenous and the vast majority has some ethnic connection to the indigenous cultures that lived in the region before the arrival of Europeans. About 70% of the population lives in the Altiplano, despite the cold and harshness of the region. Most Bolivians speak Quechua or Aymara in addition to Spanish. The standard of living is relatively low in Bolivia compared to other countries in South America, mostly due to its historically slow economic development. The national dance is the cueca , which originated from the Chilean version of the dance. Cueca consists of couples moving to three quarters time while waving handkerchiefs. The Cueca dance of Bolivia is most commonly seen during festivals.

    Emergence of the Nation. The wars of independence (independence was achieved in 1825) were led by Spanish-speaking Creoles who consolidated a highly exclusive social order. The disenfranchised majority in the colonial period fared little better after independence: power and privilege were monopolized by a tiny group of landowners and mine owners, and most Bolivians (primarily poor Quechua- and Aymara-speaking peasants and a smaller number of mine workers) were virtually excluded from national society. Only after the 1952 populist revolution did most Bolivians begin to enjoy the rights and privileges of citizenship. National Identity.

La Paz as it grows climbs the hills resulting in varying elevations from 3000 to 4100 m. Overlooking the city is towering triple-peaked Illimani, always snow covered and majestic. La Paz is the legislative capital of Bolivia, the largest city. The legal capital, home of the Supreme Court, is in Sucre.

    Bolivia : Culture
    Bolivian society in the late 1980s remained broken along lines of region, ethnic affiliation, and class. Profound differences existed between the Andean area and the eastern lowlands. With the exception of the Santa Cruz area in the lowlands, the Andes remained the most heavily settled region. The lowlands had a distinct culture, ecology, and economic history, reflecting in part a long history of isolation from most of national life. The 1952 Revolution and consequent far-reaching changes affected the lowlands and highlands in strikingly different ways. Class loyalties and affiliation reflected ethnic identification. The upper class consisted of a white elite that based its sense of privilege not merely on wealth but on proper lineage and breeding as well. The middle classa various, vaguely defined group including everyone from small shopkeepers to prosperous professionals and business owners without the elite family backgroundwas mestizo. It arose as a politically self-conscious group during the twentieth-century mining boom and joined with wage earners in the 1952 Revolution to bring about much of the present configuration of society. contempt far-reaching social changes, society remained profoundly oriented to kin and family. People of all classes and ethnic groups focused their deepest loyalties on their small community or neighborhood and a close-knit group of relatives. Family and kin offered a haven amid the economic uncertainties and political turmoil of the 1980s, providing a safety net for poorer Bolivians and a pool of trusted allies for those of greater means. Individuals consulted with kin on all valuable decisions, and social life centered mainly on family visits.
