Our new name, Kawsay Ukhunchay!

Our collection is now the Kawsay Ukhunchay Andean and Amazonian Indigenous Art and Cultural Artifacts Research Collection!

Kawsay in Quechua and Kichwa means life but also culture, experience, vivencias.

Ukhunchay derives from ukhu (uku) which means internal, deep, profound.

Kawsay Ukhunchayinvestigando la cultura profundamente” captures our endeavor of researching Andean and Amazonian culture, experiences, and expression in meaningful and deeply committed ways.

Emily Brokamp, one of our kawsay waqaychaqkuna, designed this beautiful poster below to announce and share our new name with the Ohio State community! Come and visit our newly designed displays soon!
