This work examines the relationship between European and indigenous Andean ways of understanding the past. Following field work in Bolivia, the author argues that complex Andean rituals have hybridized European and indigenous traditions and are evidence of a keen social memory in the community.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A groundbreaking and important contribution to Andean anthropology and history. Among Abercrombie's aims is bridging the gap between writing and non-writing peoples by confronting history with ethnohistory, and confronting written ethnohistory with the oral traditions and ritual practices through which K'ultas themselves remember their past."--Florencia E. Mallon, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"A major theoretical, ethnographic, and historical contribution to Andean studies. It could well become a classic."--Paul Gelles, University of California-Riverside
"What Abercrombie gives us is an understanding of how people in an Andean community shape, rethink, and reshape their past."--Gary Urton, author of "The History of a Myth: Pacariqtambo and the Origin of the Inkas"
