Sabine Patricia Hyland
St. Norbert College (De Pere, WI 54115-2099)
The Chanka and the Development of Native Lords in the Andes

An NEH fellowship is requested to write a book on the development of the Chanka ethnic group in the Andean highlands. The first half of the book (to be co-authored with Brian Bauer) will be based on a three-year field investigation of the Chanka heartland, which included a systematic archaeological survey of 300 km2 of the Andahuaylas Valley. The second half of the book will be based on information gathered during intensive archival research in Peru as well as Spain. The results will be relevant to understanding the prehistory of Andean peoples, as well as to broader anthropological issues concerning the development of ethnic groups, processes of state development, and indigenous responses to conquests.
