DELGADILLO ZERDA, David Silvestre. “Iyambae”: in search of an emancipatory higher education in the UNIBOL Guaraní and Lowland Peoples. Alteridad [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.42-55. ISSN 1390-8642.

In Latin America (LA), to speak of the conditions of possibility that show the construction of an own education in higher education as an alternative to the pedagogical project of modernity and hegemonic capitalism is to refer to localized and concrete educational experiences in the region. The context of diversity corresponds to that of the indigenous lowland ethnics of Bolivia. Now, what are the scope and limitations that particularize the approach of the ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity of the model of the Bolivian Indigenous University (UNIBOL) Guaraní and of the Low Lands Peoples “Apiaguaki Tüpa” that allows to speak of the construction of an own education oriented to the positioning of a Latin American pedagogy? The indigenous, original, ancestral peoples (IOAPs) have printed to this institution the following characteristics: subversion of the hierarchical configuration, inheritance of the colonial university model; establishment of horizontal relationships in a context of verticality of higher education (HE). As well as, the transformation of the hierarchical, monocultural and hegemonic function into a pluralizing and preserving practice of diversity destined to overcoming inequalities through its valuation, rescue and strengthening of own ethnic, cultural and linguistic elements. In addition to the transit of the supplanting of the presence, voice and actions of the IOAPs to an active and effective role in the construction of a model of HE constituted and constituent of the historical, political and identitarian vision of the indigenous peoples of the low lands performing an emancipatory function.
