Rather than concentrating on one particular culture, this presentation will focus on three individuals (1 female, 2 males), from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, ca. 500-700 CE. These three well-preserved burials provide us with a glimpse into the lives of individuals interred with certain artifacts that link them to shamanic practices. Two of them were buried with Tiwanaku artifacts, and two carried complex snuffing kits. However, they are connected by a distinctive set of baskets and clothing.
