    Indio Quichua, Embarcación (Jujuy), Argentina

    A native smoking at Embarcación, Jujuy Province.  Quichua is another pronunciation of the old Quechua languaje, a root languaje of that zone of the world. Maybe the man was called “Quichua” and was a Toba or Kom since Embarcación is near a Toban territory.

    I haven’t found reliable references for the picture or the postcard, maybe is from the fisrt third of the 20th century.

    Dimensions: 14×9 cm.
