In this article we propose to study the yanantin category that expresses everything that goes together as a unit strengthened. It also points out the relational character of everything that exists, since the solidarity of the world is always needed to exist. This reciprocity is presented in different levels: divine, human, animals, hills, pampas, Apukuna (gods), plants, musical instruments, sounds; in all of them the duality with correspondence is represented. We investigate this Andean category: in the authorized dictionaries of González Holguín for Quechua and Ludovico Bertonio for Aymara; likewise, in contemporary dictionaries and in the literary and anthropological bibliography. In this way, we will contribute to an epistemic dialogue based on a scenario of interculturality, where an Andean category is proposed to study Quechua and Aymara literature.
