MARTINEZ SAGREDO, Paula. On beati and Incas. Indigenous processions in the 1610 relación. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.2, pp.49-65. ISSN 0718-6894.

At the turn of the 17th century, the headquarters of the Viceroyalty had moved to Lima from the city of Cuzco, which had suffered civil wars, campaigns against idol worship, and the disappearance of the last descendants of the Incas. In this article we present the complete text of the Relación, preceded by a description of the historical context and accompanied by critical notes to enable the reader to understand the festivities surrounding indigenous communities’ participation in the beatification of Ignacio de Loyola, including their “dances and music,” to allow today’s audience to understand some of the mechanisms by which the Inca memory was kept alive within those communities.

Keywords : Festivals; Dances; Colonial Cuzco; Jesuits; Mis sionary linguistics; Incas; Memory.
