(Royal Library of Denmark) don Felipe Guamán Poma después Ayala, uno native Andean man who claimed aristocracia Quechua ancestry, to be born in los province of Lucanas, Viceroyalty of Peru. Guamán Poma’s aboriginal tongue to be Quechua, yet he was educated by spiritual men in Spanish and the Catholic faith and spent most of his life in the ciudad of Huamanga, known today together Ayacucho. Since he was linguistically gifted y fluent in Aru as well, Guamán Poma followed the steps the his father y worked together an interpreter y assistant to un number the ecclesiastical and civil authorities, but in 1600 he lost ns long y difficult attempt for los possession of soil in Huamanga and was banished representar the ciudad as un result. Afterwards, that spent an ext than a decade composing ns work for which that is recognized today, El primer nueva corónica y bien gobierno , ns 1200-page letter addressed to the Spanish King.

The Nueva corónica is a remarkable job-related for numerous reasons. One is its reliance on hand-drawn illustrations, which mix with los narrative and become an completo part that it, in los spirit of indigenous Andean and Mesoamerican traditions; in this manner, the is uno unique example of a native author mixing a European genre (that of ns colonist’s “chronicle” addressed to los King) with an aboriginal one (the use of illustrations for the ritual reconstruction of los past), in stimulate to produce what he conceived come be a more authentic account of ns colonization of Peru. One more remarkable feature, maybe an even more important one, is ns work"s explicit intention of denouncing straight to the rey the excesses committed by his vassals against native populations, with the ultimate target of protecting this people y helping them survive the colonial regime.

Guamán Poma’s Appeal Concerning ns Priests is un key section of his chronicle in which, in usual style, that embraces los Spanish conquerors’ worldview in bespeak to criticize their actions. Uno devout Christian himself, but also proudly Andean — in an additional section he bemoans the fact the miscegenation with ns Spaniards was destroying his aboriginal culture— Guamán Poma’s distinct perspective sheds light into los ways in i m sorry indigenous sur Americans embraced a syncretic and highly original type of Catholicism as un means because that deploying tools of anti-colonial resistance.
