APU MISSION
We are the Asociacion Peruanos Unidos, Inc (with 501 C3),
a non-profit organization devoted to preserve Peruvian culture
and heritage while supporting children and adults who are in
need that reside in Peru. The Asociacion is formed by Peruvian,
spouses, children, relatives, and friends from all over the world.
Most of our members are of Latin-American and American origin.
WELCOME WORDS
FROM THE
APU PRESIDENT
ERICK HUARCAYA
In the name of the board of the Asociación Peruanos Unidos (APU) we salute and welcome you to the ‘Peruvian Night
2015’. We are glad that you can join us!
APU was founded in 1994 to organize the ‘Peruvian Night’
with the participation of Peruvian families living in the city of Lawrence. Throughout these years the “Peruvian Night’ has been
part of the ‘Semana Hispana’. This year our efforts has been
focused to create an event that can led you to appreciate part
of the cuisine, music, dances, festivals and craft from Peru. The
central inspiration for this celebration is the Inti Raymi (Festival
of the Sun) celebrated during the Inca Empire. You will be able
to find more information about Peru, the Inti Raymi festival and
APU in this publication.
Finally I want to thank our sponsors, Santander Bank, Rockland Trust and Enterprise Bank for their support. As well as our
members and friends of APU and to our guest, for being part of
this celebration.
Enjoy the Peruvian Night 2015!

B. Bl and
Mr. Bland is the Head of school at
Milton Academy, an independent college preparatory K-12 school in Milton,
MA. Todd is the Great Grandson of
Hiram Bigham III, who discovered the
Lost Inca city of Machu Pichu in 1911.
For Todd, history is not just about
facts and dates. It is also about stories
that involve real people, like his ancestors. He learned of his famous Great
Grandfather (Hiram Bigham III) through
the stories passed down from his grandmother, June Rossbach Bingham,
who Todd described as „a great story
teller.” When Todd thinks of the discovery of Machu Pichu he thinks of the
stories June used to tell him about his
great grandfather. In these stories, Hiram Bigham had a deep fascination for
the ancient Inca civilization. Hiram his
great grandfather was also a very bright, scholarly, and charismatic person.
Bigham‘s story is also about collaboration, courage, and luck. In the
first month of his expedition to find
the ancient Incan city, Bigham met
an indigenous farmer by the name of
Melchor Arteaga who asked him what
he was doing in the Andes. Bigham
spoke of his expedition and his goal
of finding the Incan ruins. The farmer
led him to what is now known as Machu Pichu. Because of Bigham’s work,
Machu Pichu is now one of the most
visited archeological sites in the world.
In 2011, The Bingham family, Mr.
Bland and his son, Nicholas Frost
Bland was invited to Cusco, Peru to
partake in the centennial of the disco-

El
Inti
Raymi es el rito
más antiguo de los Incas que
adoraban al Dios Apu Padre Sol. Marca
con seguridad la fecha más importante de
su calendario anual. Se celebra el 24 de
junio en el histórico Cusco, la capital del inmenso Imperio de los Incas, en el solsticio
de invierno, al inicio de un nuevo ciclo y en
el retorno de la fuente de vida a los Andes.
El Inti Raymi fue creado por el Inca Pachacutec para celebrar el año nuevo en los
Andes, dar gracias a la Pachamama, para
augurar una buena estación de siembras.
El primero se celebró en el año 1412.
La ceremonia empieza en la mañana en
el Qorikancha, o Templo del Sol, donde el
Inca pronuncia una invocación u oración
al Padre Sol. Después el séquito real se
dirige a la Plaza Central. Después de la
ceremonia a la sagrada hoja de coca
para adivinar el futuro del imperio, el Inca
continúa a la inmensa fortaleza de Sacsayhuaman, de piedras gigantescas, en
la parte alta fuera de la ciudad. En esta
ocasión la antigua fortaleza se convierte
nuevamente en el centro espiritual de la
vida de los Incas.
La ceremonia es recitada enteramente
en quechua, la lengua nativa de los
Andes. Un fuego es avivado y una llama
blanca es “sacrificada” ritualmente.
Suenan las antaras, tambores y pututos
llenando el ambiente. Luego danzas
tradicionales representand o los cuatro
suyos del imperio deslumbran los ojos
con juegos de colores rojo y amarillo.
Ahora el Inti Raymi coincide con la
fiesta católica de San Juan Bautista.
Es el segundo festival más grande en
Sudamérica y una fuente de gran
orgullo para los peruanos.

PERU
Peru is located central western coast in South
America, facing the Pacific Ocean. It is the third largest country in South America, and has three natural
regions, the Coast with deserts and valleys, the Highland at the center of the country and the Oriental
area of the Amazon jungle. Those multiple temperatures and altitudes allow Peru to possess 84 of the 104
possible ecosystems of the world, creating a mega
diversity of animals and plants. Each natural regions
has their own customs, festivities and gastronomy.
Peru’s history is much more than the Incas. Ruins
of cultures as the Nazca’s, Mochica’s, Chimu’s, Paracas’s, Tihuanaco, Chavin, Chachapoyas’s, and Huari’s are still able to be visited throughout the country.
The Inca Empire, lasted only approximately 300 years
but their temples, roads and cities are the best preserved. The Spanish conquistador’s arrived in 1532,
during a civil war between two brothers trying to take
the Incas’s throne. The Viceroyalty of Peru becomes
the center of military and political power of Spain in
South America. The independence of Peru in 1821
was reach with big effort from Peruvian revolutionaries and troops that arrived with General San Martin
from Argentina, only after to reach the independence
of Argentina and Chile. Unfortunately, international
wars and Coup d’état marked the early Peruvian
republican history until 1980’s. It was followed by a
traumatic two-decade internal conflict between the
state and the communist guerrilla groups, the Shining
Path and the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement.
By 2000 most part of these groups were disbanded.
Based on the rising prices of copper, silver, lead, zinc,
oil and gold, the country experienced an economic
boom in the 2000s, and in 2011 Peru was said to have
one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. The
current president is Mr Ollanta Humala (2011-2016).
HIMNO NACIONAL DEL PERU
(PERUVIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM)
Coro
Somos libres, seámoslo siempre
y antes niegue sus luces el sol,
que faltemos al voto solemne
que la patria al Eterno elevó.
Estrofa I
Largo tiempo el peruano oprimido
la ominosa cadena arrastró;
condenado a una cruel servidumbre
largo tiempo en silencio gimió.
Más apenas el grito sagrado
¡Libertad! En sus costas se oyó,
16 | www.asocperuanosunidos.org
la indolencia de esclavo sacude,
la humillada cerviz levantó.
Estrofa VII
En su cima los Andes sostengan
La bandera o pendón bicolor,
Que a los siglos anuncie el esfuerzo
Que ser libres, por siempre nos dio.
A su sombra vivamos tranquilos,
Y al nacer por sus cumbres el Sol,
Renovemos el gran juramento
Que rendimos al Dios de Jacob.
