Bolivia: Telling the History in Our Own Words

In Bolivia, there are five largest organizations representing indigenous. Despite the rich history of these organizations in their struggle for inclusion in the public life, there are few documents that tell their story, neither is the voice of the people themselves and most have only parts and not the whole story. Therefore, we propose a workshop on free software to create documents and workshops using digital media for publication.
