Our History has been changing through the years. First there were many different cultures that settled down in our country like Cupisnique, Chavin, Paracas, Mochica,Nazca,Wari,and Chimu, this cultures are called Pre-Inca cultures because they took place before the beginning of the Incas.

Page 6: Ingles corregido 2

Each culture settled down in different cities of our country but here in Trujillo was the Mochica culture which gave us all our traditions and customs.

In the 15th century this new powerful state (the Incas) appeared and start to conquer those cultures so it became the most important Peruvian culture.

Page 7: Ingles corregido 2

When the Incas were a big empire a group of Spanish conquerors came to our country and destroyed this majestic empire and that’s how the Viceroyalty started in Peru. 

The Incas got tired of Spanish abuse so they started planning liftings against the Spanish crown with José de San Martín and Simon Bolivar as principal leaders.

After a period of revolutions and civil wars we were able to claim for our Independence. That’s when José de San Martín proclaim our freedom on July 28 of 1821.

Peruvian culture is primarily rooted in Amerindian and Spanish traditions, though it has also been influenced by various African, Asian, and European ethnic groups.

Peruvian artistic traditions date back to the elaborate pottery, textiles, jewelry, and sculpture of Pre-Inca cultures. The Incas maintained these crafts and made architectural achievements including the construction of Machu Picchu.

Peruvian literature has its roots in the oral traditions of pre-Columbian civilizations. In the early 20th century, the Indian Movement produced such writers as Ciro Alegría, José María Arguedas, and César Vallejo.

Cultures of Perú

The first Peruvian civilization settled in Huantar , Ancash in around 1000 BC. The power of the civilization, based on a theocracy, was centered in the Chavin de Huantar temple, whose walls and galleries were filled with sculptures of ferocious deities with feline features.

The highlands saw the rise of the Tiahuanaco culture (200 AD), based in the Collao region (which covered parts of modern-day Bolivia and Chile).
