Destinies of the Quechua Culture in Peru
The Outlook in Lima, Villa el Salvador, and Puquio

Rodrigo Montoya Rojas

Rodrigo Montoya Rojas is a Peruvian anthropologist and emeritus professor at the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in Lima, Peru. Dr. Montoya Rojas is also a visiting scholar on a regular basis at the University of California San Diego. His most recent works include Voces de la Tierra: Reflexiones sobre movimientos políticos indígenas en Bolivia, Ecuador, México y Perú (Editor, 2008), De la utopía andina al socialismo mágico: Antropología, Historia y Política en el Perú (2006), Elogio de la Antropología (2005), De la utopía andina al socialismo mágico. Antropología, Historia y Política en el Perú (2005), and O mundo de cabeça para baixo: relatos miticos dos Incas e de seus descendentes (translated from Spanish, 2002).

 

In 1940, Lima had just over 600,000 inhabitants but by 1995 its population had increased to seven million, with groups of migrants arriving from all over Peru. Today, Lima is a metropolis of cultures and languages; in the wake of urban growth Lima has become “Andeanized”. Migration to the capital has provoked major cultural changes in the life of the city, but so has the massive presence of the Shining Path and its demands to create an “ethnic citizenship”.

Rodrigo Montoya sets out to describe the integrated processes of migration, culture, and change in order to unravel the meanings of ethnicity, consumerism, generational relationships, and new musical and theatrical expressions, while simultaneously challenging the validity of the prevailing mestizo culture concept in Latin America. He shows the manifold ways in which daily life and culture are reproduced in a continuous and ongoing process of cultural appropriations among and between historical actors.
