In Quito it's in the naif paintings made by the indigenas from Tigua which they sell to tourists - bright and detailed miniature scenes of village festivals, llamas and snow-capped volcanoes. It's in the weavings of the people of Otavalo , which they sell on street corners. It's in the baroque churches of the Old Town incorporating Inca motifs, built by artisans under the guidance of Spanish masters. It's in stark, roadside murals warning of the dangers of drug abuse, in modern public sculptures in intersections, in statues of past political and literary figures.

    Ecuador has territories in both the Northern and the Southern hemispheres. It borders Colombia to the north and shares a border Peru to the south and to the east. The Pacific Ocean is Ecuador’s western border. Ecuador, 256,370 square kilometers in size, is geographically divided into four regions (the Amazon, the Highlands, the Coast, and the Galapagos Islands) and is politically split into 22 provinces, which, in turn, are split into 205 cantons. The coastal provinces (from north to south) are Esmeraldas, Manabí, Los Ríos, Guayas, and El Oro. Highlands provinces are Imbabura, Pichincha, Cotopaxi, Tungurahua and Chimborazo, in the north, and Bolívar, Cañar, Azuay and Loja, in the south. Ecuador’s 22nd province the Galapagos Islands. Spanish governors ruled Ecuador for nearly 300 years, first from Lima, Peru, then later from the viceroyalty of Colombia. The Spanish introduced Roman Catholicism, colonial architecture, and today's national language. Independence was won in 1822, when the famed South American liberator Simon Bolivar defeated a Spanish army at the Battle of Pichincha. Bolivar united Ecuador with Colombia and Venezuela, forming the state of Gran Colombia. His plan was to eventually unite all of South America as a constitutional republic, and one can only wonder what such a nation would have been like if his dream had been realized. After eight years, however, local interests sparked Ecuador to secede from the union. Colombia and Venezuela soon split.

    Culture of Ecuador
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search The majority of the Ecuadorian population is mestizo , a mixture of both European and Amerindian ancestry, and much like their ancestry, the national culture is also a blend of these two sources, along with influences from slaves from Africa. 95% of Ecuadorians are Roman Catholic , although their Christian beliefs are mixed with ancient indigenous customs. Ecuador can be split up into three parts, geographically; the Costa (coast), the Sierra Highlands ) and El Oriente (the east; which includes the Amazonic region). The Galapagos islands, or Archipiélago de Colón also belong to Ecuador. There is tension and dislike between the residents of Quito and Guayaquil . Additionally, there is centralism in these two cities, so people from other provinces also tend to dislike its residents. Furthermore, due to the at times extreme cultural difference between the Coast and the Sierra, there is a general dislike between those two regions that traces back to prehispanic times.

    Ecuador Culture
    Ecuador is a place with many cultures diffused in it. Ecuador Culture is not a single culture, rather it is a blend of a whole range of cultures, representing every level of this very heterogeneous community. Ecuador's official language is Spanish, but Quichua, an Inca language is spoken by the Indian population. Besides Spanish there are about ten native languages still used. Among the tourists, English is the most spoken foreign language. The tourists are even fond of the Architecture and Ecuador Art. Amazonian frontier towns, Pacific coast fishing villages, packed markets and colonial cities are the places where the Ecuadorian Culture prevails. With the wish to maintain own identity and history, these places create a meaningful path into the future. Eleven different type of people make up the Culture of Ecuador , with Quichua being more than 2 million. Other than Quichua, the Otavalenos, Salasacas and Saraguros are all modern day messengers of the ancient tongue of the Incas – vested in the Ecuadorian Andes. Despite of pressures from the industrialized world increasing, shamanistic traditions still flourish within the rain forests of the Huaorani, Zaparo, Cofan, lowland Quichua, Siona, Secoya, Shuar and Achuar.

    Ecuador's pre-Columbian people produce excellent pottery, painting, sculpture, and gold and silver work. The Spaniards trained indigenous artists to produce colonial religious art, which can be seen in many churches and museums. The Quito School of the 17th and 18th centuries combined these two influences, but was replaced by formalism after independence, which favoured subjects such as heroes of the revolution and members of the high society. Ecuador's colonial religious architecture is predominantly baroque, although domestic architecture tends to be simple and elegant, comprising whitewashed verandahed houses built around a central courtyard. Traditional Andean music has a distinctive haunting sound and is based on an unusual pentatonic scale. Wind and percussion instruments, including the bamboo panpipe and bamboo flutes, are used. Local crafts include fine examples of basketwork, leatherwork, woodcarving, weaving, ceramics and jewellery. The predominant religion is Roman Catholic, but there is a scattering of Methodist, Baptist and other faiths. The Indians, while outwardly Catholic, tend to blend Catholicism with their traditional beliefs. Spanish is the main language. Most highland Indians are bilingual, with Quechua being their preferred language and Spanish their second tongue. Several small lowland groups speak their own languages. English is understood in the best hotels, and in airline offices and travel agencies, but is of little use elsewhere.

    Jan 22nd, 2008 by Gary A. Scott Ecuador culture and ethics are reasons we love living here. Merri and I selected the village of Cotacachi as our winter home because opportunity abounds. Yet there is much more. The ethics of the culture here is wonderful! This is our home and the headquarters of our foundation because it is noted as one of the world’s most progressive humanitarian areas. The mayor of Cotacachi, Economist Auki Tituana Males is the first indigenous Mayor of Cotacachi since the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors 500 years ago. He is a trained economist and one of the first things he did was institute a program so all the people of the region could be heard. The area boasts a focus on having a multi-ethnic ethic and hosts a population that is 35% mestizo, 5% black (5%), and 60% indigenous. The main plaza in Cotacachi is 66 steps form our hotel.

    Ecuador Culture Like much of South America, Ecuadorian culture The largest ethnic groups are the Mestizos (those of mixed Spanish and Amerindian ancestry) and constitute just over 65 per cent of the current population. Amerindians are second in numbers and account for approximately a quarter of the people, around 25%. Whites are mainly Creoles, unmixed descendants of Spanish colonist, and account for 7% of the Ecuadorian population . A small minority of Afro-Ecuadorians, including Mulattos and "Zambos", constitute the remainder. Although the population was heavily concentrated in the Andes highlands region a few decades ago, today it is divided about equally between that area and the coast.

    Guaranteed lowest prices. E In celebration of his victory, Huayna Capac ordered a great city to be built at Tomebamba, near Cuenca. Its size and influence rivaled the capital of Cuzco in Perua rivalry that would mature with posterity. When he died in 1526, Huayna Capac divided the empire between his two sons, Atahualpa and Huascar. Atahualpa ruled the northern reaches from Tombebamba, while Huascar held court over the south from Cuzco. The split inheritance was an unconventional and fateful move, as the first Spaniards arrived in the same year. On the eve of Pizarro's expedition into the empire, the brothers entered into a civil war for complete control. Francisco Pizarro landed in Ecuador in 1532, accompanied by 180 fully armed men and an equally strong lust for gold. Several years earlier, Pizarro had made a peaceful visit to the coast, where he heard rumors of inland cities of incredible wealth. This time, he intended to conquer the Incas just as Hernando Cortez had crushed Mexico's Aztecsand he couldn't have picked a better time. Atahualpa had only recently won the war against his brother when Pizarro arrived, and the empire was still unstable. Pizarro ambushed the ruler, forced him to collect an enormous ransom, and then executed him. Although the Incas mounted considerable resistance to Pizarro, they were soon broken.
