What does HUACA mean?
- In Quechua, a Native American language of South America, a wak'a is an object that represents something revered, typically a monument of some kind. The term huaca can refer to natural locations, such as immense rocks. Some huacas have been associated with veneration and ritual. Andean cultures believed every object has a physical presence and two camaquen, one to create it and another to animate it. They would invoke its spirits for the object to function.
