Pre-Columbian Society of Washington DC Symposium
“INKA EMERGENCE: EXPLORING THE ROOTS OF EMPIRE IN THE ANDES”
In this symposium we look at what was unique about the Inka and what they owed to their precursors. Leading Andeanists have been lined up to discuss the Inka phenomenon from diverse angles in light of recent advances. They will guide us as we examine the Inka view of history and how it informed their efforts to shape Andean space and memory; what is being revealed about their Wari predecessors, especially in the Inka heartland around Cuzco, how the institutions of the Middle Horizon Wari and Tiwanaku empires persisted and how they were transformed; Wari artistic traditions and how they differed from those of the Inka; how the Inka shaped their landscape in their program of imperial domination; and how the interaction of the Andean and Amazonian world contributed to the development of Andean state societies
The interplay of these varied perspectives illuminates the differences between Inka and modern Western concepts of time and causality, and guides us back behind the received wisdom of Inka traditions as transmitted in the Spanish chronicles, to their development out of broader Andean traditions.
MEETING DATE AND TIME
This two-day virtual symposium will be held the third weekend in September on Saturday-Sunday, September 18 – 19, 2021. Each session will begin at 1:00 PM and end at 5:30 PM Eastern Time.

Arizona Historical and Archaeological Society Zoom
“EARLY FORMAL CEREMONIAL COMPLEXES AND OLMEC-MAYA INTERACTION”
Takeshi Inomata and Daniela Triadan
Daniela Triadan is a professor in the School of Anthropology, University of Arizona. She has been conducting extensive field and laboratory research in the American Southwest and Mesoamerica. Her projects in the Southwest include two large-scale studies on late prehistoric polychrome production and distribution, one centered on White Mountain Red Ware from east-central Arizona and the other on Chihuahua Polychrome from the Casas Grandes region in Chihuahua, Mexico. Her research in the Maya area included work in Belize and she co-directed the Aguateca Archaeological Project in Guatemala in the 1990s and early 2000s. Excavations of elite residential structures at the epicenter of this rapidly abandoned city revealed the richest in situ floor assemblages found to date at a Classic Maya site, providing a unique opportunity for reconstructing Classic Maya household organization. At the Guatemalan site of Ceibal and the Mexican site of Aguada Fénix she and her colleagues are investigating the processes involved in the foundation of Maya Civilization.
