Ecuador is a Pluri-National country, where more than a dozen of Indigenous Nationalities live, and the Sumak Kawsay (“Wellness Life" in Kichwa language) philosophy is an ancestral Andean indigenous perspective that define the welfare of indigenous societies in function of their culture, beliefs and perspectives. Nowadays, Indigenous Nationalities in Ecuador aims for a “spatial planning” on their territories and they have realized the importance of geographic information technologies for this purpose. However, historically they have faced social segregation that has restricted them accessibility to social services of quality, for example, high education. For this reason, is essential a democratization of access to knowledge for Indigenous People, in this particular case, knowledge of geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial planning, to empower them, as principal stakeholders in their own territorial planning. First, we share experiences in GIS and participative mapping training to Indigenous People of Saraguro Kichwa Nationality, in southern Ecuador. Second, we show the results of the training: some maps based in community knowledge and Sumak Kawsay approach proposals for sustainable planning that were totally developed by Saraguro people. Finally, we propose future perspectives of application of this approach in the evaluation of welfare, in economics and in sustainable development.
