This poem, a declaration of freedom in the name of Tupac, the 16th century Incan hero, was probably written around 1821 when Peru declared its independence from Spain. A revolutionary piece that addresses color, its heading reads: 'Should be placed as a Public Announcement in the plaza of the Imperial City of Cuzco.' See Manuel Vidaurre's El Plan de Peru, (Philadelphia, 1823).
