Resumen

Feasts have been understood as the locus of different types of interactions between various segments of the social sphere. Sponsored feasts at the supra-household level can provide information regarding the relationship between those who hosted the feasts and those who attended them. This paper presents evidence for supra-household feasts, retrieved from a large, stratified midden excavated at the site of Chavín de Huántar that dates to the Late Formative period (800-500 BC) in the Central Andes. I first analyze the formal characteristics of the midden deposits, and then examine variation in vessel types and frequencies, faunal remains, narcotic paraphernalia, and exotic items. Finally, I discuss the implications of supra-household feasts in the context of Andean ceremonialism and power strategies during the Central Andes Late Formative period.
