The traditional territories of pre-colonial Chachapoya communities were located in the northeastern Andes of modern-day Peru, bordered by the Marañón and Huallaga Rivers to the west and east, approximately the area now known as the Abiseo National Park to the south, and the Aguaruna lands to the north-northeast. These communities likely occupied a variety of ecological zones, from montane cloud forest to high altitude grasslands. Map by Daniela Raillard-Arias, 2021.
The central Chachapoya region of the upper Utcubamba (Atuen) is located in the departments of Amazonas, San Martin and La Libertad. Mortuary sites documented by the author are marked as red triangles, sites documented by other sources are marked as black, empty triangles. I propose targeted surveys and sampling at Salte Si Puedes (Leymebamba District), Los Estribos (Uchumarca District), and Casa de Oro (near the community of La Morada).
