Laurence Salzmann: Misk’i Kachi Runakuna

April 30, 2021 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm

In 2016, Laurence Salzmann traveled to Peru on a Fulbright scholarship. His project was to observe and document the traditional ways the native Quechua speaking people have maintained their traditions from pre-Hispanic times.  It was during his stop in the town of Maras near Machu Picchu that he became captivated by the salt ponds, “Salinas de Maras.”  Their relationship with these famous ponds, or Salineras in Spanish, has endured for more than 800 years, preceding even the Inca Empire. Being in continuous use since that time, it offered a window that Salzmann describes as “the extraordinary symbiosis of natural beauty and human history.”
