Why Black Llama?The legend says that the San Pedro culture sacrificed a black llama to the Mother Earth (Patta Hoiri - en Kunza) every June 24 in the Andean New Year.
Specifically they chose a black llama, because in the sky of the ancient peoples of the altiplano the constellation of the Llama or Yacana was the most important for them and her journey in the sky throughout the year allowed them to know the proper dates for planting, harvesting, etc. Also, the Yacana drank the water of the sea during the night so that it did not flood the continent, it is said that all the slopes and lagoons come from her...
For the Lickanantay the constellations were not figures formed by the stars, but the dark spaces among them, the Yacana is a black spot with the shape of a llama in the Milky Way, her eyes are Alpha and Beta Centauri, you can see her easily in the nights without moon of San Pedro de Atacama!!
