Chaves was influenced by the Bolivian novelist Alcides Arguedas, who in 1919 wrote the indigenist novel Raza de bronze (Race of Bronze). Chávez' novel influenced other future indigenist novelists of Ecuador, such as Jorge Icaza whose novel Huasipungo (1934) is the most important indeginist novel from Ecuador.
