"Walking together through America"

The 3rd. Interamerican Scout Moot educative proposal is based on the development of the Inca Empire

Inca Empire was the more extense in Pre-Columbian America’s history. The territory was named Tahuantinsuyo (from Quechua "the four regions or divisions: Chinchaysuyo, Collasuyo, Contisuyo and Antisuyo”), grew in the Andean zone of the continent between 15th and 16th century, as result of the Inca civilization. Was near 2 millions of square kilometers from Pacific Ocean to the Amazon rain forest.

The base of the social organization on the Inca Empire was colectivism, supremacy of the group over the individual; the man has value as a component of the group.

Economy was based on agriculture with common lands. Each family has land to cultivate and feed themselves. Bigger families received more land. The way to work the land was the "minka", they help each other with agricultural tasks.

When some villages of the Empire could not afford its basic needs due poor harvest or other catastrophees in that region, the Inca State redistribuite part of the food, prime material and other products previously stored.

In Tahuantinsuyo there was a route called in Quechua: Qhapaq Ñan, a very long distance road system, relating important cities from coast and sierra (Andes). It was created based on two longitudinal axis: from mountain sector and coast sector. The total lenght of the system was over the 30000 kilometers, and for the main road around 5200 km. of lenght. All the roads were connected to Cusco, capital of Tahuantinsuyo or Inca Empire, providing communication with the different annexed communities as part of the Inca expansion, at the same time, were an effective way to integrate administrative, political, socio-economic and cultural.

An unforgettable experience in the Sacred Valley of the Incas

In the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas rises Hacienda Paucartika, at the base of an imponent mountain with a waterfall, on the top we can find the archaeological complex of Huchuy Qosqo and is home of unique bird species in the region as well as typical flora of the Cusco mountains.

This beautiful hacienda has its origins from the pre-incan era, its base is on the top of a pre-incan ceremonial huaca. Is surrounded by inca cultural testimonials, and its facilities are part of the renovated Hacienda Paucartika, which dates back to the 18th century. Still today the estate includes traditional constructions in the middle of a natural environment without equal, making it a unique space for rest, recreation, and culture. Paucartika will be the area where the Base Camp will be located for the III Interamerican Scout Moot in Cusco between July and August of 2018.
