Auqui Mountain Spirit


For us, PERU is a country that brings to mind many things… culture, magic, surrounded by mountains… it is where our history is born.

AUQUI. This comes from the same spirit of the Apu that in the indigenous Inca language means mountain. Each mountain has an auqui, a spirit, which looks over our care, like protective gods… magical and mystical. It is closely related to Pachamama, the mother earth, and to all of the Incan gods. Today, the indigenous people still believe in this and have respect for the mountain, just as we did in the past.

The meaning of AUQUI PERU. It stands for the spirit of the mountain, in which the people still believe… in the energy and the force of nature.
