The application of indigenous justice in Ecuador is a topic of interest given its implications for the social life of the nation. The problem focuses on the fact that this constitutes a part of the country's cultural heritage, but in turn, sometimes contradicts the so-called ordinary justice. Due to the, it is proposed as the objective of the investigation to propose the most appropriate actions to mitigate the limitations of the application of indigenous justice in Ecuador. Empirical methods such as the interview, the cause-effect diagram, and multi-criteria decision methods such as Promethee and Vikor were used for this.
