To get the ball rolling...

EVO MORALES - first indigenous president

GENERAL MALGAREJO - 1820 - 1872 - there are some very funny anecdotes about this crazy dictator

EDUARDO ABAROA - 1838-1879 - lost the Pacific coast to Chile and like all good losers in Bolivia has a huge statue and a square in his honour

JAIME ESCALANTE - amazing maths teacher in the US - teaches calculus to kids the rest of the education system had given up on. Jay Mathews wrote the book Escalante: The Best Teacher in America in 1988 which was the basis for the film Stand and Deliver known in Latin America as "Con ganas de triunfar" or "Lecciones inolvidables"

BERNARDO GUARACHI - first/only Bolivian to the top of Everest, summitted on April 29, 1994
