The people of Bolivia are called Bolivians. About 50 percent are Amerindian (native people). About 25 percent are white of European descent; and about 25 percent are cholo or mestizo (of mixed lineage). The Amerindian population is made up of Quechua and Aymara. For more information on the Quechua, consult the chapter on Peru in Volume 7.
