There is an excellent exploration of the archaeology and culture of the Chachapoyas on BBC I Player. I think you will struggle to see it outside the uk but there is software which can assist you in getting around that problem and I'm sure it will be available elsewhere soon.

Here is the link

Here is the spiel

Archaeologist Dr Jago Cooper embarks on an epic journey into the remote Peruvian Andes in search of the mysterious Chachapoya people. Once numbering half a million, they were known as the 'People of the Clouds'. Dr Cooper reveals how they developed sophisticated methods of recording stories, traded in exotic goods found hundreds of miles from their territory, and had funeral traditions that challenge assumptions about ancient human behaviour. His search for evidence takes him to astonishing cliff tombs untouched for 500 years and one of the most spectacular fortresses in South America, where the fate of the Chachapoya is revealed. (R)"

It's only available on BBC I Player for a few more days.
