HISTORY

Felipa chose Melisa to help deliver the legacy of the Q'ero textiles, she will teach her to spin and weave and understand the iconography behind the textiles.

Melisa will cross the gulf that separates the Q'ero world from contemporary society and enter into its cosmovision which has been conserved for millennia. Melisa will integrate the Q'eros people in their magical, mystical place for six months.

 

Felipa, Melisa and Rolando

Felipa was trained by her grandmother, father as well as other women in her community who taught her secret techniques to project her energy through her weaving to a modern woman who will complete the difficult challenge of decoding the ancient writings of their ancestors and integrating modern knowledge and energy.

The first “Mesa”(sacred textile used by Q'ero priest ) that Felipa weaved was preserved for more than 40 years and closely guarded by her. She waited for the chosen woman to whom she would give her “Mesa”. The moment arrived when Felipa would present her prized treasure to Melisa knowing that it would complete her work and help to preserve her legacy. Melisa felt a grand calling from her ancestors and the textile she received was a carrier of ancestral information and inspiration that guided her in the search for the sacred geometrical forms.

Rolando Pauccar learnt to weave from a very early age and prepared himself to decipher the hidden writings found in the Q'ero weaving. Later he would discover that each figure found within the textiles are writings.

Felipa chose me, she will be my guide, master, mother, we will walk together along the Kapagñan paths (routes of Inka knowledge) passing great mountains and sacred places, lakes and natural surroundings , Q'ero deities.

To be part of this history implies a great responsibility to become the person who will be between the Q'ero world and the modern world. This is very important work that will inspire the hearts and minds of the modern generations.

TEAM

Melisa, Felipa and her son Rolando have put themselves on the path towards understanding the iconography of the Q'eros textiles which was one of the most important Inca writings. This was passed down from generation to generation through the textiles and conserved by the Qeros themselves.

Felipa Calcina Ordoñez - Pampamisac Prist

Was born in the Marcachea community (Qero Nation), her father was Rafael Calcina Pauccar descendent of the Qollas (Collasuyo, a nation from the South of the Inca Empire) and a high priest Pampamisayoc noted for his perfection in agriculture. Her mother was Waldo Ordonoz Quispe a high priest Pampamisayoc who passed away when Felipa was just two years old. Since then she was brought up by her father and her grandfather, Jose Calcina Pauccar, high priest Pampamisayoc who shared his personal legacy with her. Due to her mother not being there Felipa learnt her weaving skills from several women in the area and gained access to all the information about the Qero textiles. Today Felipa is herself a grand priest Pampamisayoc and Qero weaver.

 

Melisa Ramos Hinojosa Architect (MArch RIBA II)

Studied architecture in the city of Cusco (Peru) and carried out her masters in Sustainable Architecture in Birmingham (England), she is a specialist in Architecture and Sacred Geometry. Three years ago, In search of the essence of from inside the spiritual world, Melisa began travelling the world, visiting more than 150 cities and sacred places in Asia, Europe, America and Nordic Countries. During this trip Melisa gained valuable experiences and spiritual knowledge and on her path she also returned to her roots via the spiritual traditions of the Q'ero Nation (the last direct descendants of the Incas). Here she will conclude a rigorous process of initiations to achieve the position of Pampamisayoc.

“To be Pampamisayoc is to reach the fourth level of Q'ero conscience, where you develop mental and energetic capacities that help integrate and connect with human beings, nature and the universe. In order to achieve this you use the “Mesa” ( made up of 3 sacred textiles) that allows you to create your own reality and universe through the rituals associated with the Incas spiritual technologies"

 

Rolando Pauccar Calcina- Pampamisac Prist

Born into the Marcachea Community (Qero Nation) and at just three years old began learning from his mother Felipa Calcina Ordeñez knowledge of medicinal plants and also how to weave his own clothes. His father Sebastian Pauccar allowed him to join in with all his spiritual ceremonies (shamanic) that he carried out. Rolando thus developed his spiritual skills and knowledge of his cultural traditions directly from the Inca Pauccar (from seven generations before)

At 14 years of age he was chosen by the Apus (guardians of the earth) to become Altomisayoc, thanks to his abilities and being a direct descendent of the Incas, howver he still did not feel ready. Four years later after a lot of researching and personal development he decided it was time to reconnect and become Altomisayoc (fifth level of consciousness) He was guided by the Apus speaking the priests language of codes, this allowed him to develop his mental and physical capacities and enter into inter-dimensional and multi-dimensional levels to learn more about the earth, humanity and the universe.

At the same time as his spiritual transformation Rolando started investigating the Qero textiles that originated from the Incas. From the age of 9 he studied their history to discover his true identity and the cosmovision of the Qeros. During this time he also learnt to decipher the iconography contained within the Qero textiles and ultimately discovered that each and every figure translates to writing.

Interview to Rolando Pauccar Calcina  -  Q'ero Prist

"...The Q'ero textiles have the Andean cosmovision all the wisdom about how the ancient cities were built that nowadays are natural monuments or cultural heritage sites; we can mention Sacsayhuaman, Machupicchu Pisac , Ollantaytambo, Choquequirao, and many other constructions that demonstrate that there were people of great wisdom and great knowledge that today we can not understand but through the writing that these textiles contain we can understand everything..."
