Gifts From The Sun: part 1

The ancient Andean herdsmen interbred camelid ancestors to create an animal with endurance, dependability, intelligence and all around good nature ~~ it was the llama, the prize of the Inca Empire!  I am revisiting my interest in textile & culture of the people who live in the Andes mountains, where herders, spinners, weavers and knitters work their traditional crafts of livelihood today still.  In fact, I am posting a little series as I myself learn, and this one is a bit of a sleepy documentary from the early 90’s about the ancient relationship between the Andean people and their animals; the llama, alpaca, guanaco, and vicuna, on which they seem completely dependent. It is  called “Treasure of the Andes” and I do hope you enjoy!

    • Really? I never saw it back then, as I don’t believe I watched tv or anything during that time. Anyway, blast from the past for sure! xx

    • I’m glad you’re enjoying the film, I’ve watched it several times, and have learned so much about the llama & its cousins! More to come… xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
