NIELSEN, Axel; CALCINA, Justino  y  QUISPE, Bernardino. ARCHAEOLOGY, TOURISM AND INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES: AN EXPERIENCE FROM NOR LÍPEZ (POTOSÍ, BOLIVIA). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2003, vol.35, n.2, pp.369-377. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562003000200018.

During the past decade, the high Andean lagoons of the National Reserve of Andean Fauna "Eduardo Avaroa" (Sud Lípez, Department of Potosí) have become one of the main touristic destinations in Bolivia. These tours, which leave from Uyuni or San Pedro de Atacama and last for three to five days, leave little benefit to the local rural population which, nevertheless, suffers the negative consequences of tourism on the environment, the archaeological heritage, and community relationships. This paper discusses an experience started in 1996 between the communities of Santiago K and Santiago Chuvica -located on the route that communicates Uyuni with the Avaroa Reserve- and a team of archaeologists that have been working for several years in the region (Southern Altiplano Archaeological Project) with the goal of developing cultural touristic products that can be integrated into local tours, including selected components of the archaeological heritage. These actions seek to take advantage of the results of scientific research to strengthen the participation of local people in the economic benefits and administration of tourism, and simultaneously to develop strategies for the conservation of the archaeological resources of the area.

Palabras clave : Aboriginal communities; cultural tourism; Lípez; Bolivian altiplano.
