Peru Vicuna Shearing Festival Photo Gallery

A Peruvian highland Indian dressed as an Inca king makes an offering of burnt coca leaves during a ceremony at the national “Chaccu,” or annual roundup of vicunas, on the Andean plains in the Pampa Galeras National Reserve, in the Peruvian state of Ayacucho, Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Hundreds of thousands of the camelids once roamed the Andes from Ecuador to Argentina. They were considered sacred by the Inca Empire, which fell after the arrival of Spanish conquistadors in 1532.
