How can a system of belief help create identity? The cult of Pachamama revolves around a universal mother where time and space meet and where all are nurtured and return to die. Put down by the expanding Inca Empire and suppressed by European colonization, worship of this powerful goddess still survives today and binds disparate cultural groups together in the Andean Basin.
