Aymara was the language of an ancient culture which flourished between the fifth and eleventh centuries at Tiahuanaco in what are now the highlands of Bolivia and which was subsequently conquered by the Incas. In the last fifty years there has been a renaissance in Aymara culture and the language itself, which today has over one and a half million speakers of its various dialects in the mountain areas of Peru, Bolivia and Chile. In December 2005 an Aymara speaker, Evo Morales, won a landslide electoral victory to become the first indigenous president of Bolivia.
