An overview of contemporary Andean culture, as practiced by the people in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. This culture is the result of the resilience of the pre-Hispanic Andean heritage, and the continuous adaptation Andean people have practiced, first, to control their environment and, then, to survive and overcome colonial and postcolonial forms of subordination. No prior knowledge of Spanish, Quechua, or the Andes is required.
