"Setting a Scene" provides an overview of the Ayacucho region, the Quechua-speaking towns of Chuschi and Quispillaccta, and their relation to the city of Ayacucho, capital of the Department of the same name. It describes key elements of the geography within which these places are located, and traces their history up to the early 21st century. It focuses in particular on the changing relations of race and power that have structured relations between indigenous an non-indigenous peoples in the Andean region, since the European invasions of the 16th century.
