This article examines from a historical perspective the implementation of Cooperatives in the Department of Arica (1962-1976) and the participation of Andean farmers in these organizations. We describe the policies of the Corporation of Agrarian Reform, specifically, the actions of the Junta de Adelanto of Arica to promote association among indigenous peasants in the valleys and mountains of the extreme north of Chile.
