LITW: HUACA Project 2015
The H.U.A.C.A. Project acronym stands for “Human Understanding through Archaeology and Cultural Awareness.” The indigenous Quechua word huaca refers to a sacred place or object such as a pyramid, or even a small stone. It is pronounced WAH-kah.
This program is open to all students who display an interest in archaeology and the Spanish language, regardless of their prior preparation in either subject. With many years’ experience traveling throughout Latin America, leading international student programs and archaeological projects, and fresh from a scouting trip to Peru, the directors of the H.U.A.C.A. Project are well versed in Latin American cultural diversity and have developed trustworthy contacts with transportation, dining, and lodging providers throughout Peru. (Photos by Donald Slater)
