Chaski: Our Worldwide Community

What's the name?

“Chaski” was the title given to the messenger-runners whose duties were essential in operating the Incan Empire, the ancestors of Chaski Coaching Director Fredy Moposita. Revered for their endurance, a Chaski would run over and across the Andes Mountains and through deserts along the ancient Qhapaq Ñan, the network of Inca trails, delivering coded messages.

The word “Chaski” comes from Quechua, the language of the indigenous people of the Andes and descendants of the Incas. It is pronounced “cha” (as in “cha-cha slide”) and “ski” as in what you do when you slide down a mountain with boards on your feet. The emphasis is on the first syllable: CHA-ski.

As for the spelling, the Quechua writing system was lost with the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century and so any Quechua word that you see written with this alphabet has simply been translated phonetically. So you might sometimes see Chaski written “chasqui” or even “chasqi;” we have chosen “Chaski” to avoid confusion about how to pronounce the second syllable.

In a very cool linguistic feature, “Chaski” is also a verb meaning to exchange or share (derived from the responsibilities of the messengers).

 

Chaski Endurance Collective hopes to embody every sense of the original Quechua meaning. We seek to embody the messenger-runners’ formidable skills at covering ground and live the act of exchanging and sharing ideas and experiences with athletes and coaches.
