Paqos and traditional Q’ero use this kind of ch’uspa , a special fur bag made of an alpaca that was miscarried or stillborn. It is used for carrying ceremonial objects which are wrapped in a carrying cloth. Coca leaves are carried in the same bundle.  This chus’pa is from Gloria Samata Apasa of tiny Yanaruma village in the Hapu Q’eros Nation.
