FERNANDEZ JUAREZ, Gerardo. KHARISIRIS OF AUGUST ON THE AYMARA ALTIPLANO OF BOLIVIA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2006, vol.38, n.1, pp.51-62. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562006000100006.

August constitutes the most relevant sacrificial time on the Aymara plateau in Bolivia, where the ceremonial gifts, waxt'as and bloody wilanchas. Together with some mythical characters, codify a kind of ritual violence that refers to a long standing historical perception, related to both time and space of the ceremony and at the same time, contribute to the definition of the cultural identity of contemporary Aymara societies

Keywords : Kharisiri; waxt'a; wilancha; August,; Aymaras.
