This woman is wearing a colorful outfit which goes back a long way. It has defied changes in style over many years. Most of the women who sport this way of dress are of a certain age; you rarely see this garb on young women. The skirt is called a polleras and the emboidery on the hem tells what district she comes from. She may include a paño, a shawl that can also be used as a kind of backpack or even a papoose. She'll top that off with a "panama" hat, bottom it out with some fancy embroidered leg wear and then she'll be all set to hit the streets. You may, on occasion, see men wearing a poncho, but that's about all they've clung to in terms of a native, indigenous wardrobe.
