The Tawantinsuyo Movement in 1920s Ayacucho

(p.42) Chapter Two To Unify Those of Our Race
Before the Shining Path
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the history of the Tawantinsuyo Movement in Ayacucho, Peru, in the 1920s. It explains that the movement sought a thorough overhaul of Peruvian social, economic, and political relationships and it was supported by the peasants of Carhuanca. The movement also challenged the power and domination of local notables and demanded access to literacy. This chapter contends that the Carhuanca campesinos' engagement with the Tawantinsuyo movement entailed a revolutionary embrace of racial and class equality.
