          Project Goal

          Return stolen cultural artefacts to Andean communities

          Location: Bolivia

          "Our history is written in the fabrics, to lose them is to lose our past."

          Cristina Bubba Zamora has spent more than a decade fighting the illegal traffic in Bolivian ceremonial weavings. Her efforts in Bolivia and abroad to ensure the return of stolen textiles to the Andes earned her a Rolex Award for Enterprise in 1998 and brought worldwide attention to the illicit trade.
