The Billie Jean Isbell Andean Collection
This collection of materials is derived from my years of research in
the Andes, primarily in the southern Andean department of Ayacucho and
specifically in the village of Chuschi, Peru and the surrounding region
of the River Pampas Valley in the province of Cangallo. I began research
for an undergraduate honors' thesis in 1967 and the earliest images are
from that date and continue through 2002. Included in this collection
are approximately 1500 photographs, thirteen songs, my ethnography, To
Defend Ourselves: Ecology and Ritual in an Andean Village, as
well as selected publications.
