Cholitas Woman — Images by kenne

It’s a short boat ride
connecting two peninsulas
in Lake Titicaca.

Wrapped in a woolen shawl
she proudly holds her
velvet bowler hat.

Her family waits
in the plaza next to
an Inca God statue

where family members
line up for picture taking
with grandma holding baby.

Until a decade ago
Cholitas women were
banned from public places.

BoliviaCholitas Woman — Photo-Artistry by kenne

It was only a couple of decades ago Bolivia’s “cholitas” were stereotyped and
discriminated against, now riding the crest of a resurgence that has seen them
transform from being “maids of the middle classes” to having real clout in the
economic, political and fashion worlds.
