Evo Mas

Bolivian President Evo Morales gives new meaning to the term gravitas. Having won overwhelming support as the world’s first indigenous head of state, Morales weathered both an assault by transnational corporations opposing his nationalization of Bolivia’s resources, and an attempted coup, sponsored by the United States. After expelling the US Ambassador for funding an insurrection in his country, Morales now plans to meet with tribal leaders from Canada and the US at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington.
