Communities, Cultural Identity, and Social Recognition: The Moche Communities of the North Coast of Peru

Beginning in the 1990s, the spectacular wealth contained, for instance, in the royal mausoleums of Maya kings in Palenque, Copán, and Tikal, and those of Moche political leaders in Sipán, Úcupe, and Cao led to the rapid increase of scientific explorations in Latin-American countries. These discoveries also contributed to the development of national discourses based upon the idea of a shared Pre-Hispanic glorious past. Along the north coast of Peru, the 1987 discovery of Sipán’s royal mausoleums, the richest tombs ever found in the Pre-Columbian Americas, resulted in the investment of large amounts of government money in new archaeological explorations, large-scale excavations, and the development of dozens of cultural heritage sites for tourism.
