A Bolivian American is an immigrant or descendant of Bolivian immigrants to the United States. Ethnically, Bolivian Americans are of Indigenous, Afro Bolivian, Spanish descent, or a mix of all three ethnicities. There is a small Japanese Bolivian community.

Bolivians emigrate mainly because of political and economic hardships, especially lack of job opportunities in the last decade. Most of the Bolivian immigrants moved to the United States during the 1980s and early part of the 1990s due to the failed economy of the country. Bolivians have settled throughout the United States mainly in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, but there are also large groups of Bolivian immigrants in Texas, New York City, New Jersey, South Florida, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Chicago and California. The number of Bolivians in the U.S. in 2006 was estimated at 82,322.
