Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Once or twice a year a large-scale ceremony is held in and near the administrative locus of each of the territories of the Canelos Quichua. Although this ceremony has no name other than [n]jista[/n], from the Spanish [i]fiesta[/i], and although the Catholic Church has formally and conscientiously contributed to some aspects of the public ceremony, it is nonetheless a central characteristic of Canelos Quichua culture (p.167). This paper describes in great detail the various elements of this [n]Allu[/n] Ceremony from its initial preparation, two or three weeks before its actual enactment to the final Sunday feast day.
