35 Symbols that Identify Peru

Which are the symbols commonly associated with Peru by foreigners? Which are the symbols we Peruvians identify with? This list is neither complete nor official. It is just a selection - thus arbitrary - of the main images related to work practices, history, customs and beliefs of Peruvians. Each reader will make their own selection.

    Peruvian National Anthem
    The National Anthem
    Once the Protectorate was established after the country's independence, General Jose de San Martin initiated a contest to establish the national anthem as a symbol of sovereignty. The winning piece was written by Jose Bernardo Alcedo (music) and Jose de la Torre Ugarte (lit.). Alcedo and Ugarte's anthem, considered one of the most beautiful in the world, was sung for the first time in the Principal Theater of Lima on the night of September 24, 1821, by Rosa Merino de Arenas, and was adopted as Peru's National Anthem on April 15, 1822.
    The Flag
    National Coat of Arms
    A Congressional law passed by Simon Bolivar in 1825 consecrated the Coat of Arms of Peru. This comprises three fields: sky blue to upper right, with a vicuña looking inwards; white to the upper left with a cinchona tree and red in the horizontal lower field, with a golden cornucopia spilling out gold coins. These symbols represent the natural wealth of Peru. On the top, like a crest, is a civic crown of oak seen from the side. On both sides the Coat of Arms has a flag and a standard.

82. Capture Of An Inca King: Francisco Pizarro
Capture of an Inca King Francisco Pizarro. from Narrative of the Conquest of peru, by his secretary, Francisco de Xeres, 153034. Pizarro sends for Atahualpa..
Capture of an Inca King: Francisco Pizarro from Narrative of the Conquest of Peru , by his secretary, Francisco de Xeres, 1530-34 [Pizarro sends for Atahualpa.] On reaching the center of the open space, Atahualpa remained in his litter on high, and the others with him, while his troops did not cease to enter. A captain then came to the front and, ascending the fortress near the open space, where the artillery was posted, raised his lance twice, as for a signal. Seeing this, the Governor asked the Father Friar Vicente if he wished to go and speak to Atahualpa, with an interpreter. He replied that he did wish it, and he advanced, with a cross in one hand and the Bible in the other, and going amongst the troops up to the place where Atahualpa was, thus addressed him: "I am a priest of God, and I teach Christians the things of God, and in like manner I come to teach you. What I teach is that which God says to us in this Book. Therefore, on the part of God and of the Christians, I beseech you to be their friend, for such is God's will, and it will be for your good. Go and speak to the Governor, who waits for you." Atahualpa asked for the Book, that he might look at it, and the priest gave it to him closed. Atahualpa did not know how to open it, and the priest was extending his arm to do so, when Atahualpa, in great anger, gave him a blow on the arm, not wishing that it should be opened. Then he opened it himself, and, without any astonishment at the letters and paper, as had been shown by other Indians, he threw it away from him five or six paces, and, to the words which the monk had spoken to him through the interpreter, he answered with much scorn, saying: "I know well how you have behaved on the road, how you have treated my chiefs, and taken the cloth from my storehouses." The monk replied: "The Christians have not done this, but some Indians took the cloth without the knowledge of the Governor, and he ordered it to be restored." Atahualpa said: "I will not leave this place until they bring it all to me." The monk returned with this reply to the Governor.

Chapter 1: Culture Shock in Lima
September 5-8, 2003
Friday, September 5
We arrive in San Diego from New York at 3:00p on the 4th. Quite a stupid thing to do given that we have not packed anything for the month-long trip yet. I am, as usual, in good spirits and full of optimism, which Maggie attributes to carelessness. I am not careless. In fact, I am quite careful to let her pack everything. This ensures that we won't forget a thing. I even make a short visit to the office to set up my mail forwarding. We wake up at 3:00a to the sound of the alarm, my cell phone, and subdued cursing. The cursing turns out to come from me and I feel generally unhappy about the prospect of driving to Los Angeles, then flying to Atlanta, and finally flying to Lima, the last two legs of the trip in ridiculously crowded plane seats. There's no choice despite me suggesting we postpone the trip indefinitely, and so we soon speed out on the Jetta, with two duffel bags housing our packs and everything else. The freeway entrance is closed for repairs and we have to take a long detour South, which does nothing to improve my disposition. I am almost in a good mood again and that lasts precisely 10 minutes, the time to check our bags and reach the gate, where a sign informs us that Delta has chosen our flight for an experimental service: all meals will be on pay-for basis. What?! I thought the grubby, high-fat, high-cholesterol miniscule food portion was included in our $500 tickets. Now we'd have to spend $20 to buy two meals of the same dubious quality, but perhaps served with a smile. We thwart Delta's program by purchasing equally bad airport food.

        Culture of Peru
        Peru has a large variety of arts and crafts. The diversity, color and creativity of Peru's folk art has made it a fundamental activity not just for Peru's cultural identity, but also as a way of life for thousands of families and even entire communities, such as Sarhua and Quinua in Ayacucho. Peru celebrates some 3,000 festivals a year. Most of them are held in homage to a patron saint and are part of the Christian calendar adopted in colonial times, although they have blended with the magical beliefs of ancient forms of worship. These religious festivals occur alongside pagan celebrations dating back to ancestral myths in native communities in the jungle, as well as dozens of festivals created over the following centuries.

"When I came back from Lima, I felt full of warmth. It was like I would remind them of all the ways they were wonderful - and they did the same for me."
- Lisa, Peru volunteer
International travel to Peru reveals a country of amazing physical beauty, with nearly a tenth of the world's rain forests, a long coast along the South Pacific Ocean, and the Andes Mountains running straight through its center. For years it has been known to international travelers as home to some of the world's greatest ancient wonders, including the Inca ruins of Machu Pichu and the Nasca Lines. The history of the Incas and Peru's many struggles make for a fascinating story. More than fifty distinct indigenous peoples still live in Peru; recently many of them have moved to the cities. This shift of population from rural to urban has enlivened Peruvian cities with a new sense of diversity. While the Quechua culture remains strong in the Peruvian Andes.

90. The Peru Reader
This book is as indispensable for the firsttime visitor to peru as for the serious student of Latin American history and culture. Michael F. Brown, author
The PERU READER Sixteenth-century Spanish soldiers described it as a land filled with gold and silver, a land of untold wealth. To the Europeans who heard these stories it was a place of tantalizing mystery that mirrored dreams and desires unsatisfied by the Old World. Nineteenth-century travelers wrote of soaring Andean peaks plunging into luxuriant Amazonian canyons of orchids, pythons, and jaguars. Early twentieth-century adventurer Hiram Bingham told of the raging rivers and the wild jungles he traversed on his way to "discover" the "Lost City of the Incas," Machu Picchu. The richest treasures, the bloodiest conquest, the most poignant ballads, the most violent revolutionariesall have been attributed to Peru.
Unparalleled in its scope, comprehensive, and written for the traveler and specialist alike, The Peru Reader
"This is an extremely deep, broad and insightful collection on Peru." Jorge Castaneda Newsweek columnist and author of Utopia Unarmed: The Latin American Left after the Cold War
"A livelier, more literate introduction to a foreign world could not be hoped for. A Peruvian trove, indeed; so much that one hardly knows where to begin dipping into its treasures."

W ell, the name of this page is "The Peru-Texas Connection." You have already been introduced to a quick look of history, geography and other subjects. Now I am going to describe some similarities and dissimilarities, between the Peruvian culture and the Texan culture. I think that after living over 20 years in Texas and adopted it as my state, and particularly Houston as my new hometown, I have the knowledge to talk about this. However, it is not my intention to comment on which one is good and the other bad. It would be a mistake to make comparisons. All that I want is to examine and describe with the only purpose that this may help somebody to better understand both of these cultures. Whether a Peruvian goes to Texas or a Texan goes to Peru, this person is going to be exposed to one of these two cultures. The more that you know about it the easier for you to understand the other culture, and to accept it.

Ancient Andes
Ancient Peru Ancient Bolivia
Secrets of Machu Picchu
... South America DESTINATIONS Ancient Cultures of the Andes By Mark Leger The people of the northern Andes are mountain people: people of stone and of the air. Their cultures evoke that which endures: a stone fortess. And that which blows away: the distant sound of a flute carried by the wind. A nature-based spirituality is still deeply integrated into the daily life of the indigenous people who are the majority of the inhabitants of Peru Bolivia , and Most people who think pre-Columbian Andes think of the Incas. Not commonly realized is that the Inca empire was relatively short-lived. Its imperial expansion didn't begin until 1430, or 60 years before Columbus landed in the West Indies. In a flash, they controlled a 2000 mile stretch along the Andes and the western South American coast. By 1530, their magnificent empire lay shattered by the Spanish conquistadores. Although they did leave many remains, some of the most interesting archeological sites are of cultures that preceded the Incas. Agriculture began in the area by at least 4000 BC and you can visit ruins of cities dating back to 1300 BC. If you fly into Peru from any other country than Bolivia, you'll arrive at Lima. Lima is a coastal town built by the Spanish, and reflects the Spaniards' sea-faring/trading culture rather than the indigenous mountain/agricultural focus. However as the powerful national capital, Lima has the best archeological museums devoted to Incan and pre-Incan societies. This is the place to learn more about the history and to see some of the objects, the tools and textiles and such, as well as the gold, that were sacked from sites now isolated in highlands, jungle or desert.

Peru History and Culture
History Evidence of settlement in Peru dates back thousands of years but, except for some scattered ruins, little is known of these early peoples. In about 1250 BC groups such as the Chavín, Chimú, Nazca, and Tiahuanaco migrated into the region from the north. The Chimú built the city of Chan Chan about AD 1000, ruins of which remain today. Culture The Native American heritage of Peru is one of the richest in South America. Although Spain gave Peru its language, religion, and rulers, the civilization of the Inca has left its traces throughout Peruvian culture.

Tomb of "Giants" Unearthed in Peru Jennifer Mapes
National Geographic News
(February 15, 2001) Archaeologists have unearthed a series of tombs rich with treasures of an extinct Peruvian culture. The 1,500-year-old graves held five unusually tall young men surrounded by textiles, ceramics, llama skeletons, and decorative metal works. The remains are Moche, a culture that thrived on the desert-like coast of northern Peru between A.D. 100 and 800. A farming and fishing community, they constructed irrigation canals, pyramids, palaces, and temples. The origins of the Moche remain unknown, according to lead archaeologist Christopher Donnan. The skeletons, found during a 1997-99 National Geographic-funded expedition, may yield clues to their culture.
Archaeologist Christopher Donnan examines a male skeleton at the Peru burial site. The skeleton showed abnormalities that may indicate that the man suffered from a disease similar to Marfan syndrome, a genetic bone disorder.

Between 1526-28, the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro explored Peru's coastal regions and, drawn by the riches of the Inca empire, returned to Spain to raise money and recruit men for another expedition to the country. Return he did, marching into Cajamarca, in northern Peru, before capturing, ransoming and executing the Inca emperor Atahualpa in 1533. Pizarro subsequently founded the city of Lima in 1535 but was assassinated six years later. The rebellion of the last Inca leader, Manco Inca, ended ingloriously with his beheading in 1572. Cuban-inspired guerrilla uprisings in 1965 led by the National Liberation Army were unsuccessful, but a series of nationwide strikes coupled with a violent insurgency by the Maoist Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso) guerrillas caused political instability in the 1980s. However, the 1990 presidential election of Alberto Fujimori and the capture in 1992 of inspirational Sendero Luminoso leaders has brought a sustained period of peace. Peru has once again become a favorite destination among adventure travelers from around the world.
