Ausangate Traditions and Weavings

by

Weavers: Willoc, Peru

Dr. Andrea Heckman an expert on Quechua weavings, will show a documentary film at the South American Explorers Club in Cusco, Peru on Thursday June 10th at 7 p.m.  The film tells the story of Quechua villagers near the sacred peak of Ausangate.

Set against a backdrop of high Andean lakes and mountains, it shows a harsh existence but also a deep interconnectedness with the natural forces and their ritual relationships to the mountain, revealed in various festivals, weaving and other traditions.

If you’re in Cusco, and want see the film, contact the SAE in Cusco.
