Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala was a Quechua nobleman living in Peru in the sixteenth & seventeenth centuries. He is most well known for his magnum opus, El primer nueva corónica y buen gobierno, a massive book of nearly 1200 pages, including almost 400 full-page illustrations. This book chronicles the history of the Inca people (as Guaman understood it) from their beginnings all the way to the Spanish colonial government. Finished in 1615, much of the book was a critique of corrupt and cruel Spanish governance. The book was directed to Philip III, and included Guaman’s suggestions of a better form of government. As best we can tell, the manuscript never reached the king, and was left forgotten in the Danish Royal Library for most of its existence.
All images come from El primer nueva corónica y buen gobierno. Here, in order, are page numbers (according to the site from which I took the images) and the descriptions of what the images depict:
- 375: The voyages of New World discovery and conquest: Christopher Columbus, Juan Díaz de Solís, Diego de Almagro, Francisco Pizarro, Vasco Núñez de Balboa, and Martín Fernández de Enciso
- 377: Don Martín de Ayala, the first ambassador of Huascar Inka and father of Guaman Poma, greets Don Francisco Pizarro and Don Diego de Almagro, ambassadors of the Spanish king
- 384: The conquistadors Sebastián de Balcázar (actually, Benalcázar) and Hernando Pizarro confront Atahualpa Inka at the royal baths of Cajamarca
- 386: Don Diego de Almagro, Don Francisco Pizarro, and Friar Vicente de Valverde kneeling before Atahualpa Inka at Cajamarca, with the Indian Felipillo acting as interpreter
- 396: The style of dress worn by the first Spaniards in Peru
- 442: Viceroy Don Andrés Hurtado de Mendoza receives Sayri Tupac Inka, King of Peru, and honors him in Lima
- 503: The royal administrator orders an African slave to flog an Indian magistrate for collecting a tribute that falls two eggs short
- 509: The royal administrator and his low-status dinner guests: the mestizo, the mulatto, and the tributary Indian
- 717: Devout black Christians from the stock of unacculturated black slaves from Africa (“Guinea”) say the rosary before an image of the Virgin Mary
- 755: Guaman Chaua, qhapaq apu, powerful lord of the Yarovilca dynasty of Allauca Huánuco, from which “the author Ayala” claims descent and to whose descendants the Spanish king grants favors
Thank you, John Oliver, for taking down the “she’s someone’s daughter/sister/mother” thing at the root. I get the intention behind it is not bad, but seriously-my value as a human should not be defined by how my being hurt would affect my father, brother, or male partner. It should be defined by how it would affect ME. I am someone with worth and value independent of the men in my life, as are all women. We are not tangential sub-people who only exist as we are related to me, we are people. Full stop.
