Q’eros belong to the larger Quechua population group, named for their shared language. The community we visited live in and around Qochamoqo, almost 4,400 metres above sea level in eastern Peru, and are said to be the ultimo ayllu Inca, the last Inca community in the country.

'We are The ultimo ayllu Inca - the last Inca community in the country.'

One legacy of the country’s long and rich history are communities such as the Q’eros, who are thought to be the descendants of the ancient Inca civilization. Situated on the central west coast of South America, this large country encompasses a great variety of biotopes and climates, in mountain, desert and coastal regions.
