Bolivian myths and legends are as colorful and extraordinary as the 36 Cultures of Bolivia. Each Bolivian culture has its own mythology and legends, many of which tell of a people's origins, beliefs or history. One of the most interesting things is to hear these legends told in a native language like Aymara or Guaraní as storytelling is often accompanied by native rituals.
Because there are so many cultures in Bolivia, there are literally hundreds of Bolivian legends. You'll see some below. You can find more Bolivian myths, or if you know of any others, please share them in our bilingual Bolivian Legends Forum.
