In that context, in the coming months, the Ma’u Henua Indigenous Community of Rapa Nui will receive a visit from the Council of Atacameño-Lickanantay Peoples from Antofagasta,which unites the indigenous communities of the Atacama La Grande Area of Indigenous Development. The purpose of this visit is to study the experience of management and tourism administration of Ma’u Henua, with a view to repeating it in the Atacameño-
Lickanantay territory.

In addition, the Indigenous Community of the Island
has been invited by the World Indigenous Tourism Alliance (WINTA) to share their experience as an example of autonomous administration by a native people. WINTA is an international network for establishing alliances between individuals and native groups throughout the world, with a focus on empowering indigenous tourism based on native values of reciprocity and respect.
