Abstract

ALCONINI, Sonia. THE KALLAWAYA TERRITORY AND THE MILLIRAYA POTTERY WORKSHOP: ASSESSING INKA PROVINCIAL CERAMIC PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, AND INTERREGIONAL EXCHANGE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp.277-292. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562013000200005.

In this manuscript, I will discuss the compositional nature of Inka imperial ceramics found in the Inka center of Kaata Pata, an important Inka administrative center of the Kallawaya region. I will also explore the relationship that such ceramics had with the well-known ceramic workshop of Milliraya to the northeast of the Titicaca basin, documented in ethnohistorical accounts. The goals of this research are (1) to understand the processes of production and distribution of the Inka Taraco Polychrome pottery style, unique for the use of white kaolinite in the paste, and (2) the kinds of relations that the eastern province of Kallawaya maintained with highland polities of the circum-Titicaca region. In addition, I will discuss the nature of ceramic production in the Inka imperial provinces, diversity in pottery production, and the role that the Inka State played in large-scale distribution networks.

Keywords : Inka empire; Kallawaya; Inka Taraco Polychrome; Milliraya; ceramic production.
