Inca sun god inspires name of famous raft

By Debra Dobbins

 

“Kon-Tiki was the raft used by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl in his 1947 expedition across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands,” according to Wikipedia. “It was named after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, for whom ‘Kon-Tiki’ was said to be an old name.“

The raft is now displayed in a museum in Oslo.
