Inka ruins and landscapes draw tourists from around the world, but few of the visitors get to know the modern descendents of the Inkas. This class is an introduction to Native Andeans today: their social practices, ideas about the world, religious practices, and lives. The course will draw on first-person accounts, ethnography, film and music to introduce modern Quechua-speaking people and their lifeways.
