  • Description:

    We are pleased to present “Weaving Way of Life in Peru” to the U-M Community and to the public at large.

    In July 2013, a group of 10 students, a program assistant, and a faculty leader for “GIEU Handmade History in Cusco, Peru”travelled to Cusco to participate in the culture as apprentices of the ancestral art of weaving in the village of Chinchero. This photo exhibit captures the interconnection of the community with the land, their devotion to weaving, and how this practice is part of a people’s identity.

    “Handmade History in Cusco, Peru” is a 2013 site program in the Global and Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEU). For more information about GIEU, visit lsa.umich.edu/cgis/

    We would like to thank the following people and institutions for making this experience and exhibit possible: our weaving mentors and friends in Chinchero and Cusco, the Center of Traditional Textiles of Cusco, the International Institute, the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS), University Unions, the ISS Media Center, the Language Resource Center, and the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
