Mass media, native identity, technologic advance, communicative deficit, analfabetism, racism


The «guaraní» natives are forgotten by the bolivian government and even university ignores their existence, although the «guaraní» language is official in Bolivia. As they have no access to mass media, they cannot extend their language, history and culture. To finish with this situation, Formasol and a research are studying what the reason of this oblivion is, providing them with means to protect their culture and encouraging a meeting between the native reality and the academic world.
