The Send Off

So it turns out this T´inka ceremony is not as dubious as we thought – just our execution of it, most likely. It is a ritual still practiced by indigenous peoples across the Andes to Pachamama, or the godesss Mother Earth. Esteemed Dr. Federico Kauffman, former Director of the Museo Nacional de Antropología y Arqueología e Historia del Perú, has kindly given Verdant permission to link to his analysis of the ritual (Spanish speakers only).
