One of Coast 2 Coast's first stop-motion animations, "The Girlfriend of the 'Casona,'" shares a local legend from Lobitos, Peru. Local legends can provide indirect evidence of a community's tenure rights by showcasing long-standing, collective beliefs or historical narratives about land (or ocean or freshwater) usage. Even if the stories do not address "tenure," legends are a continuity in storytelling that can suggest a long-standing relationship between a community and the land they occupy, reinforcing their claims to tenure rights.
