Bandelier, whom we have already mentioned in the previous chapter, was also interested in working in Tiwanaku (Fischer 2010:54) and, in fact, had been commissioned by amnh for this purpose (Loza 2004:155).

Tello and Alfred Kroeber, Lima, November 1, 1926. Courtesy of Smithsonian Institution. 54 â•‡ •• Peruvian Archaeology: A Critical History The creation of the Institute of Andean Research in the United States in 1936 came at an opportune time for Tello. Thanks to the grants that he received from the Rockefeller Foundation, he was able to once again conduct important archaeological research (Patterson 2002:78). His relationship with Alfred Kroeber,11 a disciple of Franz Boas, clearly demonstrates Tello’s institutional links as well as his overall theoretical views (Figure 13).
8 Thus, his implicit ideological goal was the promotion of a strong national identity through the recognition of the “unity of the ethnic-geographical, cultural, linguistic, religious [Andean pantheism] and historical” (Tello 1967b: 207–8; see also Kaulicke 1998a:72). In the same way, Tello could say as early as 1921, in relation to supposed prehispanic “nationalist politics,” that: The Incas laid the foundation of a new nationality. [They] . . left the existing secular institutions, the arts, the industries and all of the achievements of civilization to continue without interruption, in their march to greatness; thus, they sought through the cooperation of such diverse groups to form a superior organization equipped with a central power to control and unify.
