Among us, we are young, we are old, we are women, we are men, we are farmers, we are researchers, we are musicians, we are engineers, we are philosophers, we are naive and we are wise. We are in the pursuit of happiness and serenity, we believe that we are all connected, and that our actions echo and influence our lives.
Qosqo Chima Manqo Qhapac Ayllu Pututu Q'epachi Tanta is an inclusive tribe in Cusco-Peru, we do not have monetary pursuits, we are registered in the National Office of the Superintendent of Public Registries, SUNARP, as a non-profit organization with identification number 11155700.
We belong to Mother Earth and preserve her beauty and magnificence we must.
Our objectives are: to investigate, promote, preserve and spread the values and manifestations of the Pututu in the Andean living culture, in synergy with our past, present and future.
We are also trying to engage in conversation with other cultures and traditions, no one would fault you for wanting your life to have meaning. A sense of meaning is something that we all crave - maybe even need. You might have your own personal sense of purpose in your life, or maybe you’re hoping something will help you find one. You may have your core believes centered in Animism, Atheism, Buddhism, Christianity or Islam, we are here to discuss as human beings with open hearts and minds.
All of this for society, to create a sustainable way of living and in defense of Mother Earth and the cosmos.

There are the twelve sacred Apus in Cusco: Ausangate, Salkantay, Mama Simona, Pillku Urqu, Manuel Pinta, Wanakawri, Pachatusan, Pikchu, Saksaywaman, Viraqochan, Pukin, and Sinqa. And our Pututus play their first tellurics sounds at the top of the Apu Pachatusan.
This ritual takes place the 21st of June, a special day in Andean culture, the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, a new beginning and it is named Inti Raymi.
The traditional clothing we carry is characteristically of the Andes, a woolen cap, a poncho with decorations of chakanas or watays, pallaes, qochas, cutys and sacred Inca symbols which represent the levels of divinity and reality in our worlds.
We also have made contact with different tribes that happily joined us to share and rebirth our ancient knowledge and traditions.
All the small details have meaning and our people dedicate immense effort and time.
We have become walking museums of ancestral traditions and we hope to connect with more souls.
