The Billie Jean Isbell Andean Collection: Images from the Andes is derived from Professor Billie Jean Isbell's years of research in the Andes, primarily in the southern Andean department of Ayacucho and specifically in the village of Chuschi, Peru, and the surrounding region of the River Pampas Valley in the province of Cangallo. Included in this collection are approximately 1500 photographs, thirteen songs, Professor Isbell's ethnography, To Defend Ourselves: Ecology and Ritual in an Andean Village, as well as selected publications.
