Pachamama kawsay quwaqninchik | Mother Earth who gives us life

For us as indigenous peoples, the relationship we have with Mother Earth equals respect and reciprocity, since she gives us life and provides us with varied food. Pachamama Kawsay Quwaqninchik shows us gratitude towards Mother Earth through an offering that is made in the sacred mountain to thank it for the fruits it gives us.
