Prehistoric Moche Politics & Food Along Peru


Join Dr. George “Wolf” Gumerman (Dean of the Honors College and Professor of Anthropolo-
gy at NAU) on May 5, at 11 a.m., as he examines one of the most socially and economically important components of Peru’s Moche culture–the food system. Because food is incredibly social, it reflects sociopolitical organization. Food related data from Moche sites indicate the relative independence and self-sufficiency of Moche households and communities, suggesting a de- centralized sociopolitical organization rather than a centralized authority with control over production, distribution, and consumption.
