 The Religion of the Quechua
According to the Quechua, the Pachamama has a physical and a spiritual reality, it is the earth that nurtures men, therefore, it is important to offer her a payment.
However, because the structure of the cult and the structure of the family were closely interrelated, the cut subsisted despite the Spanish attempt to suppress thier religion.
From that time, however, the population started reinterpreting Catholicism through their autochthonous religious elements, and Catholicism became very influential until the beginning of the twenty century, when there was a decrease in the number of priests and therefore a reduction on the catholic practices, without really affecting manifestations such as the saints feasts.

Si bien 12% de los 13.200.000 habitantes del Ecuador son nativos de idioma quechua, con demasiada frecuencia carecen de acceso a servicios de educación y atención de la salud y están sumidos en la pobreza y sujetos a privaciones.
A medida que las comunidades quechuas fueron aprendiendo acerca de las cuestiones de salud reproductiva y la manera de cuidar mejor a sus hijos y sus recién nacidos, en las zonas servidas por Jambi Huasi la tasa de prevalencia del uso de anticonceptivos aumentó desde 10% hasta 40%.
Si bien las mujeres quechuas, en su mayoría, siguen aspirando a tener entre cuatro y seis hijos, ahora hay más probabilidades de que espacien los alumbramientos y adopten medidas para asegurar embarazos sin riesgo y saludables.

Catalina is a Quechua Indian, a descendant of the once-proud Incas who ruled a vast mountain empire from Chile to Colombia and built the fabled stone cities of Cuzco and Machu Picchu.
And the Quechuas are the poorest of the lot, barely able to survive by farming the cold, dry earth, or toiling deep in the primitive tin mines.
For the Quechuas, learning to read and speak Spanish is not a luxury; it is the key to their survival and sense of self-worth-and the perfect prelude to evangelism.

 thE-TASK: World View
The Quechua people of Ecuador, Bolivia, and Peru are the descendants of the Inca empire which was conquered by the Spaniards in the sixteenth century.
In remote highland areas, many people still speak Quechua, the language of the Inca, and live much as their ancestors did before the arrival of the conquistadors.
The Quechuas are a minority people group in Ecuador and are, therefore, oppressed and exploited by the white minority, although political changes to democracy during the past 20 years have helped improve the situation of the Quechua.

 Los Quechuas
El quechua, aunque deriva del aymará, es una lengua más evolucionada, porque durante el imperio Inca se fueron incorporando a ella nuevos términos y variaciones fonéticas (arawacas y otras).
Hoy en día los quechuas no cultivan más que una parte relativamente pequeña de la tierra que cultivaban sus antepasados, descendientes de la civilización inca, que utilizaban la técnica de regadío de la seca estepa montañosa mediante un complicado sistema de canales y terrazas.
Cuando un individuo se casa y hereda tierras comunales llega a la categoría de persona, propiamente dicha (runa en quechua) y pasa casi automaticamente a ser comunitario con todos sus derechos y obligaciones.

 A few words on Quechua
The novels of José María Arguedas, himself bilingual in Spanish and Quechua, are powerful evocations of Quechua culture, and of the scorn the Quechua face from the rest of Peru.
The Central Quechua dialects, spoken in the central Andean spine of Peru, are the most diverse among themselves; this leads some linguists to suppose that this area, and not the Inca capital Cuzco, is the ancient homeland of the Quechua peoples.
Quechua, in fact, is very nice for studying sound change, because we have written sources (from bilingual speakers) dating back five hundred years, yet its monolingual speakers have generally been illiterate.

 Legal Affairs
The Quechua Indians, the longtime guardians of maca's secrets, united with government officials of Peru to condemn Pure World's actions as biopiracy, a type of thievery in which plants or organisms from one country are patented in another, without permission or compensation.
Argumedo had been troubled by the patenting of Peruvian crops, a concept that is alien to the Quechua; they freely exchange knowledge between villages, rather than guarding their secrets from fellow Quechuas.
But for the 6,500 Quechuas who live within the confines of the park, defending themselves is preferable to putting their faith in the feeble laws of outsiders....

Space distribution and planning among the Quechuas were based on some elementary aspects of their daily life.

Según el líder del Movimiento al Socialismo, los pueblos aimaras, quechuas, mojeños, chapacos, vallunos, chipayas, yuracerés, chiquitanos, muratos, son dueños absolutos de la noble tierra boliviana y así deber ser reconocido por todos.
En estos momentos recordó que en año 1825 cuando se fundó Bolivia, miles, millones de quechuas, aimaras, guaraníes que participaron en la lucha por la independencia, fueron marginados y que por eso los pueblos indígenas originarios reclaman refundar Bolivia mediante la Asamblea Constituyente.
Los aimaras, quechuas no somos rencorosos y si hemos ganado ahora no es para actuar con venganza con nadie, no es para someter a nadie, sólo reclamamos unidad e igualdad, agregó.

 Quechua Culture
Quechua was the official language of the Inca Empire, who ruled much of the Andes region from the mid-1400s until the arrival of Spanish conquistadors in 1532.
Quechua language and culture were found in some cities of the Andean highlands, including the old Inca capital of Cuzco in Peru, as well as Cochabamba in Bolivia.  Later, millions of Quechua families migrated from the countryside to such national capitals as Lima, Peru, and Quito, Ecuador.
The Quechua culture is a strong culture with its own unique history and life-style that has lasted for many years.  Despite earlier oppression by the Spanish, the Quechua culture still remains strong in many areas today.

 Les textes quechuas coloniaux - César Itier
Non que l'activité littéraire en quechua soit par la suite tombée en décadence, bien au contraire, mais les textes publiés avant 1650 suffirent sans doute pendant longtemps à pourvoir aux besoins des "doctrines" péruviennes.
La langue d'arrivée -le quechua- est alors respectée par le "traducteur" et son texte constitue un témoin fidèle des emplois réellement existants dans cette langue.
Or, même si le corpus colonial quechua n'a pas la richesse du corpus nahuatl, par exemple, nous avons essayé de montrer qu'il est loin d'être si pauvre et si peu authentique que l'on puisse le négliger.

La cosmogonie Quechua est contraire à tout anthropocentrisme, dans la mesure où elle reconnaît une hiérarchie des mondes ou des dimensions, qui marchent dans une harmonie cosmique, due à l’écoulement cyclique de l’énergie (le sami).
Ainsi pour les Quechua il n’y a pas de limite entre le sujet et le monde extérieur qui l’entoure.
La perception du temps des Quechuas est cyclique et correspond à la continuité existant ente le sujet et l’espace sur lequel s’appuie sa conception magique du monde.

A demonstration of this in-advance planning are the large amount of maquettes found in almost all the archaeological museums in the country; they are carved in stone or made in pottery.
Inkas are recognized among some other aspects, for their balanced social organization, their mastered and peculiar way to work stones, their advanced knowledge in planning and engineering, and because of their epoch and without intervention or influence from other intercontinental cultures they developed one of the most advanced civilizations of the planet.
The work was relatively simple when manipulating small or medium stones, because they could be placed or tried many times; but problems arose when working with megalithic boulders of dozens and even hundreds of tons.

Además de la Biblia, monseñor Coronado y su amigo, monseñor Molloy, tradujeron al quechua el Ordinario de la Misa (la descripción de la liturgia eucarística), el Ritual de los Sacramentos, el Hanan Pacha Nan (devocionario en quechua), el Catecismo o la Imitación de Cristo.
Con todo ello, logró que, a partir de 1994, los indios quechuas que lo desearan ya pudieran rezar a Dios en su lengua materna.

To assess the role of substrate preference in adaptations to chronic hypoxia, positron emission tomographic measurements of heart regional glucose uptake rates following an overnight fast were made in volunteer Quechua subjects and in Sherpa subjects, both indigenous to altitudes of over 3000 m, and in a group of lowlander volunteers.
Highest uptake rates were found in the Quechuas on arrival and in the Sherpas after a three week period at low altitude, intermediate rates in Quechuas after a three week period at low altitude and in the lowlanders, and lowest rates in Sherpas on arrival.
Uptake values in Quechuas declined significantly after a three week period at low altitude, but the positive correlation with glucose levels persisted.
