The Aymara de la Estrella Indigenous Community has 27 members and a total of 15 families with a constitution date of June 16, 1998, registered in the CONADI registry of indigenous communities.
The members of the Community are in the vast majority farmers and merchants who work and cultivate mainly in the Azapa Valley. The lands and the rights that the Community possesses in Ticnamar present enormous development potential, but currently, the partners carry out only temporary activities in the sector, mainly cultivating and harvesting alfalfa.
