Abstract

Higueras discusses three themes in his article that mirror those of recent publications by his colleagues in other Latin American countries: the need for archaeology to play a fundamental role in creating the identity of a past that the people of the nation can take justified pride in; the conflicts between national metropolitan archaeologists vs. national provincial archaeologists; and the conflicts between national archaeological agendas and foreign archaeological programs. Indeed these same three arguments dressed in slightly differ­ent verbiage, are the basis of the informative Point-Counterpoint argument by Ernesto Salazar and his colleagues in a recent Society for American Archaeology [SAA]
Bulletin (Vol. 14, No. 3, pp. 3, 14-15, 1996).
