ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

The Institute of Andean Studies was the vision of John H. Rowe (1918–2004), who founded it in 1960. As stipulated by the articles of incorporation, the primary purpose of the Institute is

“…to organize, sponsor, and assist field, museum and library research and study in archaeology, history, linguistics, ethnology and biology of the native peoples of Colombia, and of that area of South America which was formerly the Inca Empire, and which presently comprises northwestern Argentina, northern Chile, and the countries of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia; to publish a journal and issue other sundry publications reporting the results of such research; to sponsor meetings and conferences for the purpose of discussion of results of such research and the problems pertaining thereto…”

The Institute holds its Annual Meeting in early January in Berkeley, California and publishes a journal, Ñawpa Pacha, dedicated to the study of the Andean past. The Institute has no connection to the University of California or any other agency of the government of the United States. The Institute has no paid staff, officers, or directors.

The Institute of Andean Studies is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation recognized by the State of California and the Internal Revenue Service, EIN 94-6103089. Gifts and bequests to the Institute are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
