Origen

San Antonio de Pichincha is a place whose name is written in history (both Ecuador's and the world's) with golden letters, because on these paths journeyed the Yumbos and the Quitus Caras as they followed the Inti Ñan (the "Path of the Sun"). Many years later, the French Geodesic Mission, credited in part for developing the "meter" as an international unit of measurement, also traveled these paths. In 1936, Luis Tufiño also walked these paths while he was constructing the first historic equatorial monument at the "middle of the world". My father, Professor Humberto Vera, walked along these streets when he discovered the immense beauty of this enclosed valley, the Valley of Lulumbamba. Soon thereafter, he decided to paint the first line at the historic monument, so that tourists could take a photo in both the northern and southern hemispheres. I often would help him in those early years by dressing in indigenous attire, as we welcomed foreign tourists. In the coming years, we celebrated on numerous occasions, along with Dr. Descalzi, Luciano Andrade Marin, and Misael Acosta, the golden festival of the equinox. However, life displaced us a few meters north to where the idea and reality of the Museum of Intiñan (Path of the Sun) was born. The main objective of the museum is twofold: to rescue and revive the ancestral worldview of a geographic center and to establish an ethno-ecological habitat at the "Middle of the World."

The Solar Cylinder or “Acoratene”

Cilindro SolarAt the foot of the volcano, Cayambe, Antonio de Ulloa, in 1736, discovered a solar cylinder. He was able to demonstrate that the main functions of this solar cylinder were to act as a center for astronomical observation and as an energy point for when solar meetings were carried out. In the present day, Fabian Vera, using his father's studies and his own research, has built, along with help from his interdisciplinary team, a new solar cylinder. Vera's cylinder, with its characteristics of design, function, and location, make it unique on a worldwide level: the inner designs represent a trip in time, and at each cardinal point one can find representations and symbols in mural form that speak to the millennial origin, solar villages, astronomers, and the historic legacy of the country.

On every equinox (March 21st and September 23) and every solstice (June 21st and December 21st) the museum's solar cylinder is dressed in gala with the purpose of welcoming the sun and demonstrating what our ancestors discovered and studied many years ago.

 

Indigenous Huts

Chozas IndígenasIn 2007 the municipal government of Tena and the Museum of Intiñan signed an inter-institutional, cooperative agreement that resulted in the construction of two beautiful cabins here on the grounds at Intiñan.
What is special about these huts? Each one represents an ancestral culture from Ecuador.
The first is a true-to-size replica of a Waorani dwelling place, and its interior showcases Waorani traditions: ritual artifacts and hunting and fishing tools. The second hut is of Quichua (Kichwa) architecture and it promotes the natural tourist attractions in the province of Napo.
.
Though that seems special enough, we also have the honor of displaying an original hut that dates to 1875, which was inhabited by the Caiza family. One of the matriarchs of the family, “Mama Rita Caiza,” died at the age of 115. For them, everything--each tool and object--has significance. The Caiza family raised “cuy”—guinea pig—whose meat was and is preferred for rituals and important festivals.

You might be asking yourself: what is the importance of these huts? The answer is fairly simple. The equator (zero line of latitude) intersects the country’s four regions—the mountains, the coast, the jungle and the Galápagos Islands. Based on this, we have tried to spread life, customs, and cosmography of the original in habitants of these four regions through which the equator (latitude 00°00´00”) passes.

Tola FunerariaThe Burial Mound

 

In tsafiqui language it means “Our Earth”. It has two sections—the upper half is tubular and vertical, the lower half is horizontal. In the lower half, one can find a clay jar and ceremonial clay cups next to skeletal remains.

 

 

 

 

Laboratorio Solar

 

The Solar Laboratory

This name means “sign,” “indicator” or “geographic point.” It is a stone marker that indicates the four hemispheres of the Earth, as they are divided by the equator and the 78 ° (west) line of longitude.

 

 

Reloj SolarThe sun dial

 

Using sunlight, a metallic indicator projects a shadow to mark the time of day. The dial has two faces in which the hours are etched. The shadow from the sun appears on the south face for six months and on the north face for six months. Only on the equinoxes does the shadow appear on both faces.

Galapagos Islands

GalapagosAmong other important areas of Intiñan Museum, since the 60’s we have attempted to promote, in favor of national tourism, the new book Galápagos y El Ecuador by Professor Humberto Vera, who was member of the first cultural mission to the Galapagos Islands from 1936 to 1938. His aspiration was to publish his studies, observations and experiences as professor of the colonists and his life on the enchanted islands. Here we expose a scientific question that supports concepts from established authorities, such as Doctor George Baur, William Beebe, and others who have modified Wolf and Darwin’s theory which indicate that the archipelago was formed by the accumulations of volcanic material that exited from the bottom of the sea. Professor Vera, without disregarding scientific authority, exposes his objective, practical and exceptional opinion from another point of view, which clarifies the problem of the presence of equatorial islands in the great Pacific Ocean.
Vera, during his mission as an educator, collected interesting data and photographs from the coastal province of Manabi. Other observed data in some provinces of Imbabura, Pichincha provide irrefutable witness that the Galapagos Islands with all of its living members were united with the equatorial continent. These facts, available to scientific tourism, are demonstrated by Intiñan Museum which is intersected by the equator along with Wolf volcano on the northern Galapagos island, La Isabella (4.645 km 2).
The area that we have dedicated to the Galapagos Islands is a miniature diorama, which shows the 19 main islands and the continental coasts of Ecuador, along with other islets and rocks. In reality, the Galapagos Islands are located at 89 - 92 west longitude from the prime meridian at Greenwich, but here at the museum (due to space considerations) they are represented at 00-00'-00'' latitude and 78 degrees west longitude.

The Agora

GalapagosThe agora or “curi-cancha” is an intercultural space of the Intiñan Museum where cultural activities and festivities are carried out on the equinoxes and solstices. It is an area with capacity for 400 people who meet for these solar festivities and who enjoy dance, music and theatre.
It was built for this purpose in 2006.

 

Coral of Andean Camelids

These animals live in the Andes of Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. They are raised to be beasts of burden and as a source of food (meat). There are few differences between the llama, vicuña, alpaca and guanaco. Their wool is used for making ponchos, vests, scarves and hats.

The Salasaca People

SalasacasThe Salasaca community lives in the province of Tungurahua near the highway that goes to the city of Baños. They were part of the group of indigenous people known as “mitimaes” in Bolivia during the time of the Incas. Their daily activities are agriculture and artisan craft.
They enjoy interpreting native music with drums and flutes. In honor of the corn harvest in June, they celebrate the feast of the Inti Raymi.
At the museum we can observe the typical "bareque" house, made from bunchgrass ("sigse") and a certain type of reed ("cana brava") known as "carrizo." The construction of the house represents the typical warp and weft weaving techniques of the Salasacas. In the house we have a permanent exposition of native tapestries and weavings. The Hurtado family (of the Salasacas) have lived and worked in the house since 1965.

 

 

 

Totemic Forest

The project, whose creator is Robert Saavedra Walker, began in 1999 and its main objective is to exhibit the most representative artwork of America and other continents whose territories are intersected by the equator. This is in an effort to rescue and spread the culture of the original people groups and to value them as vital components of humanity's cultural heritage. We believe that there does not exist a more ideal place on the planet to permanently exhibit these works than that of the equator at San Antonio de Pichincha; all for the benefit of the cultural integration of the nations. America and the world will be united in a legacy of history, art and integration. The representative works of art that will from the collection will be under the care of Mr. Fabián Vera Segovia, director of the Museum of Inti-Ñan.
