[PACHAMANCA} Peru's Pitmasters Bury Their Meat In The Earth, Inca-Style

[PACHAMANCA} Peru's Pitmasters Bury Their Meat In The Earth, Inca-Style | Le BONHEUR comme indice d'épanouissement social et économique. | Scoop.it
What's the epitome of summer for a lot of Americans? It's communing around a grill, with friends and family, waiting for a slab of meat to cook to juicy perfection.

In Peru, people like to gather around heat and meat, too. Except the heat — and the meat — are buried in the ground. It's called pachamanca, a traditional way of cooking that dates back to the Inca Empire. The pit cooking technique has evolved over time but remains an important part of the Peruvian cuisine and culture, especially in the central Peruvian Andes all year-round for family get-togethers and celebrations.

This article is probably my favorite one that I have read on this site. Its's interesting to see the different cultures and their traditions like this one for example. They have a big Sunday meal that they cooked underground using heated lava rocks to cook the variety of vegetables and meat.

Pop culture is taking over the whole world and few folk traditions are still around today. I believe this article shows a great example of how societies are still honoring their heritage and ways of life. Even something as simple as a way of cooking preserves cultures that are being lost. PC

(South America) This article describes a technique of Peruvian cooking showcased at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. I had never heard of pachamanca, the Incan cooking method that involves layers of potatoes, corn, vegetables, and meat steamed in a hole in the ground. The system involves a bottom of hot volcanic rocks, then a layer of vegetables that must be cooked for longer, followed by a layer of 3-4 types of meat. Then vegetables with shorter cooking time goes on top, with another layer of hot rocks in between. Then the hole is covered with flavoring and fabric and cooked for 1-2 hours. This way of cooking has survived through centuries of conquest and war and remains a vibrant part of Peru's culture.

'NEO-ANDEAN' architecture sprouts in Bolivia

'NEO-ANDEAN' architecture sprouts in Bolivia | Le BONHEUR comme indice d'épanouissement social et économique. | Scoop.it

"Brash, baroque and steeped in native Andean symbols, the mini-mansions are a striking sight on the caked-dirt streets of El Alto, the inexorably expanding sister city of Bolivia's capital."

Indigenous peoples across the world are beginning to take pride in their heritage once again, after being told by the forces of the imperialism in their countries, that it was not as good as European culture.  This article shows how in Bolivia, the Aymara people, a native group of the country, are rising to political, economic, and social prominence in the country.  Even the country's leader is from this group.  The architecture of this new rich class reflects native heritage but has elements of globalization.  The "castle" mentioned in the article has indoor soccer pitches (originally a European Sport) but it has so much popularity in South America, that the region is known for it today (look no further than Argentina's Lionel Messi or Brazil's Neymar).  The ballrooms also have European chandeliers, but so strong is the native influenced expressed in the houses, that they take these global factors and make them their own.  I believe this is a beneficial fact, the indigenous people across the world should be proud of their heritage and diverse backgrounds.

I should not have seen the squatters video first. I know this is a different location but its just amazing economically how you have people, mind you humans who live like the squatters just trying to survive and not because of things they did wrong after all in the other video the gentleman trying to support his family had a job in a state bank but just because they can't catch a break or the way the system is set up. In this video everything is rich and people have no worries about a roof over their head or food in their stomach. I know this happens across the world but just imagine everyone enjoying the same rich benefits and having no economic classes.

this is a magnificent example of a new style of architecture sprouting up almost overnight, and a style which is inspired by new ideas. its fantastic to see none traditional architecture becoming big.

The GEOGRAPHIE of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."

A good teaching tool for explaining the diversity of languages.

Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 11, 2015 11:46 PM

Summary- This video explains how so many languages came to be and why. By the early existence of human there was a such smaller variety of languages. Tribes that spoke one language would often split in search of new recourses. Searching tribe would develop in many new different ways than the original tribe. new foods, land, and other elements created a radically different language than the original. 

 

Insight- In unit 3 we study language as a big element of out chapter. One key question in chapter 6 was why are languages distributed the way they are. It is obvious from the video that languages are distributed they way they are is because of the breaking up from people which forced people to develop differently thus creating a different language. As this process continues, there become more and more branches of a language family.
