Indigenous Peoples of South America Series: The Descendants of the Incas, From the Tahuantinsuyo to the Republic of Peru

Ronald Elward offers insight into the (mythical) origins of the Inca people, the empire, and the organization of imperial families and their role during the colonial period before asking: what happened to the descendants of the Incas? In 1800, the indigenous elite in the city of Cusco included about 90 families, what impact did the Rebellion of Túpac Amaru II and the Independence of Peru have on the fate of these Inca families, in Cusco and nearby towns? Do any of these families survive to this day?
