Manu Explorers Amazon Trails 5d/4n

Manu Explorers Amazon Trails 5 days: In 1909, Dominican missionaries at the mission of San Luis del Manu located where Boca Manu Explorers Amazon Trails now standsheard about a rubber tapper who led a correría, or Indian raid, up the Palotoa (Pantiacolla) River The latter is an affluent that empties into the upper Madre de Dios River near Shintuya. The rubber tapper, it was said, found an outcrop of rock alongside the Palotoa onto which were sculpted innumerable “gothic” letters. Years later, in 1921, when the Manu Explorers Amazon Trails mission was abandoned and a new one founded among the scattered Machiguenga Indians along the Palotoa, the same Dominican missionaries who had heard the story about “gothic” letters finally went to look for them. Led by three Machiguenga guides, the Dominican friars Jesús Broca and Vicente Cenitagoya, and a priest, José Rodríguez, arrived by canoe at a large, smoothly-polished side of stone along the “Pongo de Mercanto,” a local name for a spot of rapids on the Palotoa River. Very impressed, the three Dominicans got out of the canoe and began examining the rock face, which appeared to be incised with animal and human like figures as well as with innumerable small markings.

The missionaries interpreted the markings to be a mixture of oriental and gothic scripts after spending hours examining the rock face and carefully making drawings, the missionaries decided that they had finally deciphered certain “panels,” or groupings of designs. One, they believed it showed the biblical Creation. Another, the Temptation of Eve. Still another, they were fairly certain, depicted the Virgin and her Son. And so on. Satisfied with their results, the missionaries departed, never realizing that they had just participated in a natural Rorschach test standard psychological examination in which a patient is asked to describe what he or she sees in a series of ink blots. The patterns that emerge are thought not to be inherent in the ink blots but, rather, represent patterns already present in the patient’s mind.

The real meaning and origin of the Pusharo Petroglyphs remain a mystery. Isolated stones and outcroppings throughout the Manu Explorers  Amazon Trails region are scarred with similar inscriptions and unintelligible designs. They may be hundreds, or even thousands, of years old. Obviously, they were inscribed by cultures long since extinct, as current ones have no knowledge of either their meaning or their creators. Whether these carvings will ever be correctly interpreted is debatable.
