The Tinku is a controversial and violent ritual that divides the Quechua community of Piruani.
Some of the natives believe this celebration goes against their Christian beliefs and prosperity. Others believe in the deep cultural tradition that celebrates nature through personal sacrifice.
The blood in the Tinku is a sublime act.
