In Amantani there are about 800 families divided in 10 communities: Santa Rosa, Lampayuni, Sancayuni, Alto Sancayuni, Occosuyo, Incatiana, Colquecachi y Villa Orinojón, El Pueblo and Villa. The main livelihood is agriculture; they cultivate potatoes, “ocas”, barley and beans, and in livestock farming their main production is sheep and cattle.
Due to the existence of granite rock in the hill of Llacas Titi, the natives have developed an activity of cutting and carving many different utensils for daily use as well as designed decorative elements when building houses and roads.
