The bolivian immigration has its beginnings in the nineteenth century. The first to arrive were young men, willing to till the earth. Then, entire families were welcomed by this land. The first destination was zone north of Argentina : provinces such as Jujuy and Jump they gave accommodation to this community. Closer to the second half of the twentieth century, Bolivians began to migrate to different parts of the country. To Buenos Aires, which offered a wide range of labor, Chubut, Santa Cruz and more. However, one of the provinces that received the most Bolivian flow was Córdoba. That's why we're talking about a Plurinational Cordoba .
Bolivian communities are mainly concentrated in the Nuestro Hogar area 3, Villa The Liberator and Commercial District , among others. In total they are 30 thousand bolivianos who live in Cordovan land, and share their culture with us constantly. That is why thousands of people mobilized in demonstrations over recent conflicts in Bolivia. In Cordoba , this march was massive.
Other cultural expressions, such as the feast of the Virgin of Urkupiña or the Independence of Bolivia are held in this province. Bolivian Folk Groups in Córdoba , the Consulate of the Plurinational State of Bolivia in Cordoba and the Bolivian Collectivity are the main organizers of these events.
Beyond the rich of plurinationality and multiculturalism, this community suffers day by day discrimination . The racism and the xenophobia are a very common feature of the Argentine, even if we don't see it. Why is the most frequent insult “black crap” ? Or, at the beginning of the emergency villas, far in the story, the most subordinate character was the “black head” . Now updated to “black head.”
This feature of Argentine society is clearly suffered by the Bolivian community. Why the football audience continues to use the term “bolivian” as if it were an insult?. What ideas are associated with the foreigner who inhabits our land? Maybe we forget that we came from immigrants fleeing the war. Our land was and is the embrace and hope for many people who live very difficult situations. At the time, it was haven for Europeans in a situation of war. Tanos, Germans, Spaniards and more, arrived to stay, and today they are part of our family trees . But that, the European one, is immigration that we are proud of. However, Latin American immigration bothers us... Venezuelans , Bolivians, Peruvians who come to Argentina, are not as welcome as Europeans. Why will it be?
Thinking from multiculturalism and the wealth of our land , isn't it nice to think that Argentina is consolidating itself as a new opportunity for people who don't have it in their own country?
In turn, that pride which characterizes us so much should be fueled by these situations. It's time for revalue our roots and rethink our identity . How many of these Bolivian immigrants have Argentine descent? How many Argentines have Bolivian ancestors or parents? Claiming this culture, recognizing this heritage is part of be argentinian .
