The Peruvian Porter, an indigenous Quechua, was part of the group who accompanied American archaeologist Indiana Jones on his 1936 expedition to find the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol in Peru, South America.

Biography Edit

The Peruvian porter was an indigenous Quechua and spoke fluently that language.[2] In 1936, he was hired along with four other porters and Spanish Peruvians Satipo and Barranca to assist American archaeologist Indiana Jones as he sought out the Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors, which was said to be resting place of a legendary golden idol.[3]

Despite his superstitions surrounding a temple curse, the Peruvian porter and his counterparts accompanied Jones along with his treacherous guides Satipo and Barranca, though their fears seemed to irritate Barranca, who treated them harshly to the point that they had Jones' sympathies.[4] When they came within sight of Mount Shubet, the porter assisted Barranca in tying two mules to a tree, before taking the lead of the group and pressing forwards. However, after clearing away some brush around an eight-foot tall Chachapoyan statue, the porter was scared away by the demonic idol, and the nesting animals that flew out of it chased him back into the jungle.[5]

Behind the scenes Edit

The Peruvian Porter was portrayed by the credited actor and stuntman Ted Grossman in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Grossman later went on to play the Deputy Sheriff in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

In the first draft of Raiders, the native porters are specified to be Yahua.[6]
