Cultural myths function as a way of conceptualizing and organizing something held in common by a group of people. Its connotation is ideological and serves to cause one to believe that this "something", whether it be shared values, attitudes or beliefs, is natural, normal, of common sense and may even be true. The Andean myths contain sacred history and material testimony that reflect current events. - Publisher
