In search of its visibility and the rescue of its culture, the Afro- Bolivian people are looking for their original roots. The present paper reports an anthropogenic study carried out in the Afro-descendant populations of Tocaña, Chijchipa, Mururata and San Joaquín, in Nor Yungas, Bolivia. The characterization of the communities based on genetic markers and biodemography has allowed to observe the high degree of conservation of the African heritage. We analyze the contribution of this work to the search process of identity of the afroboliviana community.
