Si la voz “peruanidad” significa la esencia material y espiritual de nuestra nacionalidad, hay que convenir que ella tiene raíces profundas en nuestra Patria desde tiempos remotos, porque no otra cosa revela el origen y proeza de Ayar Manko, uno de los cuatro hermanos legendarios, que salió de la Cueva de Tampu-toqo, con la misión de ser, primero,...

... First, both the Paracas Peninsula and south Manabí have offshore islands and abundant marine fauna. Second, both Paracas (Tello and Mejía Xesspe 1979) and Salaite were important funerary centers.

In and around its heartland in highland Ancash, Chavín also began to exert influence on smaller villages and hamlets in neighboring drainages and hilltop communities located to exploit lands for herding and cultivation.
