Q'eros

 

The name Q’eros refers to Ayllu or State. The communities that belong to the Ayllus inhabit the Peruvian Andean range, and have mantained cultural traditions surviving from the pre-hispanic era. Ranging from agricultural to medical to spiritual, these customs reflect the community’s Andean belief system and its close connection to the Earth and surrounding mountains. Q’eros community elders attribute the community’s survival of the Spanish conquest to the protection of their sacred mountains, the Apus, and the community continues to maintain its identity and traditions despite the increasing reach of globalization.
