"Cholitas" are the proud names of the female skaters who race and pirouette in colourful, multi-layered pleated skirts and black bowlers in La Paz, the world's highest terrain. They want to rebel against the stigma still attached to the name of the descendants of indigenous tribes. With their daring jumps in traditional costumes, the young women are riding against racism and machismo and want to show that everything is open to the Cholitas of today. But there are still stones in their path to a free, self-determined life.
