abstract
Based on interviews and secondary sources, this paper documents the current religious climate in Copacabana, Bolivia. The origin of creation myths from earliest recorded times, the site's power as a sacred space has persisted through history, from 1200 CE to the present. This paper traces the evolution of religious beliefs and practices from the Colla nation to the Inca Empire, the Spanish Conquest, the Bolivian Republic, and the Plurinational Republic of Bolivia.
