Participatory decision-making processes to manage the archaeological heritage of indigenous communities

Overcoming a past of mistrust and lack of communication, Fundación TIERRA has served as a bridge between the government and 117 Aymara communities in the Lake Titicaca watershed. Now, 15 municipalities have passed laws to protect archaeological resources that improve community-based territorial management as a result of a long process of dialogue and collective construction.
