This article addresses the intense dynamics of cultural and social change seen in indigenous campesinos communities around the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia in recent years related to the valorisation of archaeological remains, and in particular, of caves with mummies and pre-Hispanic settlements. Beyond those impacts generated by the development of tourism in the region, like the introduction of a group of new principles and values linked to the concepts of patrimony, cultural heritage, and commodification of culture, here we analyse the ways these communities reformulate and update their relationships to archaeological remains, and by doing this, articulate different readings and conceptualizations of the past.
