Qechua Week in Cusco

Yesterday, the 25th of November the Qechua week started in Umasbamba. Scholars performed scenes of a play called The legend of the lake of Piuray (La Leyenda de la Laguna Piuray).

This activity was organized by the Ministry of Culture of Cusco together with the Provincial Municipality, the mayor Academy of the Quechua language and the center of Guaman Poma de Ayala.

Today there will also be activities to commemorate the indigenous language of the Incas. There will be a forum about "Strengthening the Quechua language for Communal Leaders" in the Garcilaso House at 4 p.m. and at 7 p.m. a traditional counterpoint of jokes and others will be held. This activity is known as K'aminakuy.
