On my way to the restroom at the Ingapirca cultural center I noticed the sign pointing towards the restrooms. When the people of this area look around they see men wearing ponchos and the women wearing polleras, so it seem obvious that a representative human begin would have this appearance as well. "Restroom" is written is Spanish, English, and Quecha. An ongoing bilingual project (Spanish and Quecha) in the area is ensuring that Quecha remains part of the indigenous culture. The indigenous people, through this sign, show both their pride in their dress and their language.
