Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the crucial relationship between the emergence of Cuzco as a centre of archaeological and tourist international interest, and the materialization of regional identity and proposals of Peruvian identity among Cuzco people during the first half of the twentieth century. It is part of a larger project on indigenismo-in particular on the neoindianista trend within this movement-in which the central role of the 'folkloric' in the forging of this movement and the identities that emerged from it are stressed. In attempting to place highland culture, in particular Cuzco culture, at the centre of the Peruvian state, the artists and intellectuals brought together the development of folkloric art and the promotion of their region as a centre of archaeological and tourist interest. The chapter highlights the crucial relationship between 'folklore', national identities, cultural legacies and heritage, and the worldwide phenomenon of tourism.

Keywords: archaeological interest; cultural legacies; Cuzco; folklore; indigenismo; national Identities; Peruvian identity; regional identity; tourism
