White Bolivians or European Bolivians are Bolivian people whose ancestry lies within the continent of Europe or the Middle East, most notably Spain and Germany, and to a lesser extent, Italy, Croatia, Lebanon, and Turkey.

Bolivian people of European ancestry mostly descended from people who moved from Spain, five hundred years ago.[2] Many are not white by an American standard, but are mixed.[2] Most of them are rich and part of Bolivian upper class.[2]

European Bolivians are a minority ethnic group in Bolivia, accounting for 5% of the country's population. An additional 68% of the population is mestizo, having mixed European and indigenous ancestry.[1]


Compared to the Indigenous population, considerably fewer white and mestizo Bolivians live in poverty.[3]

Geographically, the white and mixed-race populations of Bolivia tend to be centered in the country's eastern lowlands. The white and mixed-race Bolivians in this region are relatively affluent compared to poorer, predominantly Indigenous regions of Bolivia.[3]

Conceptions of racial boundaries in Bolivia may be fluid and perceptions of race may be tied to socioeconomic status, with the possibility of a person achieving "whitening" via economic advancement. Differences in language, educational status, and employment status may also reinforce perceptions of what constitutes a person as "white", "mestizo", or "Indigenous".[3]


White Bolivians, particularly wealthier white Bolivians, have tended to favor the right-wing opposition against the Evo Morales administration. White Bolivians tend to oppose the Morales government in part due to the shift in power towards the Indigenous population.[4]
