|Ecuadoran students share the Inti Raymi at the University of New Mexico|
This summer, a group of students from Universidad San Francisco de Quito shared theInti Raymi ritual with members of the Albuquerque community (including staff from the Latin American and Iberian Institute). We were purified with sage and shared water, and danced around in a circle to the sound of Andean musical instruments. And then we shared a meal of chicken, potatoes, beans and fruit.
The students are at UNM for several weeks as part of a summer academic program. They will also have an opportunity to spend some time in one or more of the Pueblo communities in New Mexico.
