Qoyllur Rit'i: In Search of the Lord of the Snow Star

This web site documents and makes accessible a photo exhibit by Peruvian photographer Vicente Revilla held at the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, University of Massachusetts Amherst, during Latino Heritage Month, October 1999.  Mr. Revilla also made a presentation on October 12, el Día de la Raza, which was co-sponsored by the UMass Amherst Libraries, the Department of Anthropology, and the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies

The festival of Señor Qoyllur de Rit'i takes place annually high in the Southern Andes of Peru, 16,000 feet above sea level.

This online version of the exhibit was created by Priscilla Higuera, John Raible, Jeff Belizaire, and Isabel Espinal, with assistance from Russ Martínez, Patricia Miller and Emily Silverman.
