The Inca civilization has fascinated modern historians and archaeologists for many years. The Incas built a large, tightly controlled empire that stretched across vast regions of South America. The Inca nation contributed greatly to the political stability of the area and developed a unique culture which continues to impact the world till today.

The Incas were a South American Indian nation whose lands were centered around the southern highlands of Peru. They created a strong, stable government that facilitated the construction of walls, irrigation works, roads and other infrastructure elements – many of which are still in use today. Even after the Spanish conquered the Inca Empire in the 16thcentury, the descendants of the Incas were able to keep the culture alive through their stories and communal memories. Many Peruvians still believe that a new Inca king – which they call the “Amaru”, an amalgamation of the ancient Inca and Spanish words meaning "king" -- will arise to restore the glory of the Inca Empire to those living today.
The Incas established their empire along the western coast of South America. The land is largely flat and arid but it abuts the Andes rain forests which gives residents a temperate, pleasant and fertile environment. The ruler of the Inca empire was the “Chief Inca,” also known as the “Lover of the Poor” and the “Son of the Sun.” Inca tribespeople lived in villages and the residents of each village were generally related in some way or another. Multiple villages were grouped into provinces and the empire consisted of four quarters ruled by noblemen, each of which held several provinces that were governed by secondary noblemen. The Capital of the Inca Empire was Cuzco.
The emperor was believed to be a descendant of the sun and his subjects believed that he ruled by divine right. He could not be seen by his subjects – even his messengers could approach him only by standing on the opposite side of a screen. The emperor ate from gold and silver dishes and never wore the same clothes twice. Inca emperors were, on the whole, responsible leaders who cared for their subjects. Yet they were revered and feared as men of great power.
Much of Inca life centered around the nation’s religion which was polytheistic. There was an Earth Mother, a god of the weather and the most important god, the god of creation (Viracocha). The most sacred shrine of the Incas was the Temple of the Sun which was located in Cuzco. People worshiped their ancestors and emperors were mummified.
One of the Inca’s most important feast days was the Feast of the Harvest which was held at the beginning of the Southern Hemisphere’s fall season. There were also rituals of planting when guinea pigs and llamas were sacrificed. The Incas practiced human sacrifice as well.
Art was prized in Inca society where technical perfection was highly valued. Inca artists and artisans are best remembered for their stone masonry, textiles, metalwork and sculpture.
