WHO WERE THE INCAS?
The Inca Empire represents one of the most important legacies in the Americas. The Tawantinsuyo managed to cover a territory of about 4500 kilometers that went from Cusco to the North of Ecuador and Colombia, to central Chile and to parts of Argentina. Although history and legends generally speak of a dynasty composed of 13 Incas, there is enough consensus to affirm that the empire in its real expression begins from 1438 with the reign of the Inca Pachacutec. The Incas did not have a writing system but depended on the oral tradition and the khipus, instruments made up of strings of different colors that by means of knots, codified the necessary information. The Khipukamayoq, the specialists in these tasks resided in the different districts and recorded, interpreted and memorized the necessary information for the different authorities including data such as food availability, population, births, deaths, among others. Much is also known about his life through the chroniclers who left important texts gathering information about their customs.
