Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Archaeological evidence is reviewed to test the premise that the Huari (Wari) tradition influenced the Moche and Chimu traditions in the Moche Valley. Influences from the north coast of Peru are also explored. No Huari influence is found for the introduction of urbanism, columnar construction of adobe bricks, or large walled enclosures; these changes predate the Huari. Slight Huari influence can be seen in the adaptation of a flexed burial position and some Red, White, Black ceramic designs, even though no Huari religious themes are included. These influences probably arrived after the abandonment of the highland Huari capital. Instead, major influences came from the far north coast as seen in myths, legends, and the [i]audiencia[/i].
