Juyayay Inti Raymi!
Inti Raymi is the sun festival celebrated by the indigenous communities in latin America . It’s held during the summer solstice, June 21st which is the longest day of the year, to give thanks for all the crops. It usually lasts from the 18th-29th depending on the community. It starts by a purifying shower in the closest river, followed by an offering of food and crops to Pachamama and then music and dance. Zapateando with musicians, the community goes to the main plaza, where everyone meets and dances to celebrate.
