History of Site and Related Water Issues:

Apurlec, is part of the old pre-Inca Cultural legacy of the department of Lambayeque, in its infrastructure there are still reservoirs where water was stored and later used to irrigate the lands Mochicas. That is to say, that according to the history the Mochicas disappeared because of a MegaNiño, phenomenon that continues lashing to the towns of Peru until the Present time; For this reason especially this year, the community has the desire to dance as a show respect for the element water. But also as a symbol of unity in the face of natural disasters.

Apurlec, es parte del antiguo legado Cultural preinca del departamento de Lambayeque, en su infraestructura aun se notan reservorios donde se almacenaba agua y posteriormente se utilizaba para regar las tierras los Mochicas. Vale decir, que según la historia los Mochicas desaparecieron a causa de un MegaNiño, fenómeno que sigue azotando a los pueblos del Perú hasta la Actualidad; por tal motivo especialmente este año, la comunidad tiene el deseo de bailar como muestra respeto al elemento agua. Pero también como símbolo de unidad frente a los desastres Naturales.
