LA READAPTACIÓN Y LA TRANSFORMACIÓN POLÍTICO-CULTURAL NAZCA : LOS NAZCA DEL HORIZONTE MEDIO AL INTERMEDIO TARDIO

Abstract : The traditional interpretation of the disappearance of Nazca is understood to have taken place during the Middle Horizon, specifically through the expansion of the Hauri/Tiahuanaco Culture. Nevertheless, the material culture recovered from archaeological excavation and prospection gainsays this assumption. In effect, the Nazca area maintained its population during the Middle Horizon and Late Intermediate Period. Yet there was a gradual re-adaptation by Nazca to changing ideologies. The focus in this article is of the Middle Horizon as one of the great periods of regional interaction and not as a process of political or imperial expansion. Therefore the elements that conditioned Nazca transformations were of an endogenous and exogenous nature, with the former being the determinants of said changes. We believe that it was the necessity of political survival by the Nazca elites that pushed them to drag the rest of the population towards a politico-religious adaptation that was initially linked to the Huari/Tiahuanaco sphere and following this an association with Pachacamac.
