Pigs Feet, Laz Paz, Bolivia
One of El Alto's Aymara residents working in La Paz as a street vendor, selling pigs feet to hungry city-goers. These women are known as Cholas, a conscious statement of cultural identity made public by their bowler hats, pollera dresses, and Alapca shawls. The Cholas reflect the cultural pride that has permeated Bolivia's contemporary culture, and were a driving force behind the social and cultural movement that swept indigenous president Evo Morales into power in 2005.
