The following article: "The ethno-nationalism in Andes - the case of Bolivian Aymaras" presents the description of aymara's nationalism phenomenon in present-day Bolivia - a short sketch of intellectual debate on the concepts of nation, emphasizing its ethnic dimension. This study compares the process of Central-Eastern Europe's nations formation with the aymara trajectory, underlining the key moments of aymara's construction as ethnic nation. This work describes the aymara ethno-nationalist ideology and history, divisions and actions of its politics (Katarism), as well as recent aymara's initiatives related to the idea of national recovery and diffusion.
