The Salascas Indians were deported by the Incas in the 15th century. Since then they have been living in the Ecuadorian Sierra. Well-known for their making carpets they also live on agriculture and breeding. They try to maintain their tradition against all the odds. Tungurahua Province, July 1999 and 2000.
