On the front cover: Thousand of Quechua Indians from Bolivia marched for Indian rights, carrying the traditional Wiphala flag for Indigenous pride, as they came down from the hillside into La Paz, Bolivia, on October 18, 2005. In December 2005, Bolivians elected their first Indigenous head of state in five centuries, Evo Morales, an Aymara Indian and former coca farmer who led nonviolent protests that forced the resignation of Carlos Mesa that June. Morales was sworn in as president in January 2006. Photo courtesy of Noah Friedman-Rudovsky, World Picture Network.
