The Russian Old Believers in Colonia Toborochi, located in the Bolivian province of Santa Cruz. In Bolivia, the Russian Old Believers have been there more than forty years. Old Believers are dispersed all over the world, some of them live in Latin America and Alaska. Everywhere they carefully preserve Russian culture and a traditional mode of life. They lead a quiet and discrete life and do their best to stay away from the vanities and temptations of the outer world. Their religious books are written in the Old Slavonic language, food is all homemade. The anathemas imposed on the Old Believers in the 17th century were rescinded by the Orthodox Church in 1971.
