Andean HUACA Project
Huaca refers to a sacred place or object in the Quechua language and serves as the project acronym for Human Understanding through Archaeology and Cultural Awareness. Slater and Cutler traveled to significant archaeological sites such as Chan Chan, Cerro Blanco, and Chavin de Huantar, as well as Colonial churches, vibrant markets, and numerous museums. In addition, after a home-stay in an indigenous highland village, they hiked the 30-mile Inca Trail to Machu Picchu over the course of four days.
The three-week student version of the trip set to run in June 2013. A student information session is tentatively planned for early November 2012. Applications will be made available at that time. All students, regardless of language preparation, are encouraged to apply.
