S01:E09 - Bolivia: Fighting for the Pachamama
26 min
Every May, thousands of Quechuas, farming people of the high plateaus, converge on Macha for what is no doubt one of the most spectacular and violent rituals in America, Tinku: a fertility ritual in the form of a fight. The blood shed is supposed to feed Pachamama, the Earth mother. She is responsible for good harvests, fertility amongst the women, and an abundance of lamas in the herd.
