48 Cantones de Totonicapan

What is unique about the document and the indigenous organization it describes is that it has been in existence since colonial times. Both the organization and the forests they are protecting have survived centuries of changes and pressures. This is a situation where all three major principles of NWP are manifest but perhaps over the years, the cultural aspect has become more important and indeed the driving force for the continuing sustainability of the forest and the people who are the 48 Cantones de Totonicapan.
