The evidence linking this story to Bolivia is limited. There's no country of origin cited alongside this story in the book source described below. However the name "Huathia" can be found on web sites associated with Bolivia. It appears to be a name associated with either the Quechuas (Incan descendants) or the Aymara (a subject people of the Incas and later the Spanish), between them constituting the largest native populations of the country.
