The Takanakuy celebrations in Peru

CUZCO, PERU - DECEMBER 25: Two women fight during Takanakuy celebrations in the region of Chumbivilcas, Cuzco in the Andes of southern Peru on December 25, 2014. The Takanakuy is a traditional celebration held every December 25. The celebration can last many days. The word 'Takanakuy' means 'to strike with the fist' and fighters are heating with dances and songs called Wayliyas. Men and women who have had problems with other people during the year are fixing their conflicts at the end of the year with one or several fights. Usually, conflicts are raised by issues related to land or harvesting, stealing animals or insulting the name of the father. Some collisions are caused by love or friendship issues.
