The Wiraqocha Foundation is a non-profit educational and charitable organization dedicated to
the preservation of indigenous wisdom and knowledge systems of the Q'ero people of the Andes of Peru.
There are many ways to support our efforts.
All proceeds from our Mestana sales go directly to the Q'ero Kids Education Fund, which provides tuition assistance for the sons and daughters of Paqos to attend the private Arco Iris school in Cuzco, Peru.
Our collection includes more than 50 traditional Mestana cloths and rare, ancient style Ch'unchos designs, collected from Q'ero Paqo families to keep them weaving their traditional Inka patterns. By shopping our marketplace you help to encourage the rich traditions of weaving, music, and ceremony of the Q'ero community, educate the next generation of Paqos, and facilitate exchange with the world while minimizing disturbance of the delicate fabric of this sacred people.
Purchases made through our Bookstore help support the Wiraqocha Foundation. Books by Wiraqocha Foundation founder Elizabeth B. Jenkins include The Fourth Level, Journey to Q'eros, The Return of the Inka and the new epic fantasy series Motherworld (preview it here).
