In 1821, Liberator Jose de San Martin founded the Republic of Peru. The birth of the Republic was an ambitious project to unite different ethnicities, languages, cultural beliefs, native tribes and religions under one unique nationality. Formerly the heart of the great Inca Empire and then the axis of Spanish colonialism, Peru encloses a vast, multifaceted and marvelous heritage. Nearly two centuries later, Peru is now an accomplished reality: a progressive nation that welcomes everyone to discover its beauty.
Peruvians in the United States are proud of their homeland. Sumaq magazine is a collective effort of Peruvians to rescue, preserve and promote our cultural manifestations.
Our main purpose is to achieve dialogue, by providing a channel in which we exchange ideas, feelings, hopes, and common dreams. That is the only way in which we can fortify one another, by enhancing cooperation in the purest sense of brotherhood. Cultivating unity will also help our nation to acquire more prestige and honor.
Peruvian culture is our most intimate treasure. Sumaq is our way of sharing it with all global citizens.
