Aymara-Inca mythology

The Mythology Aymara-Inca include the following South American peoples and empires: Aymara, Inca Empire, Tahuanottinsuyu, Tahuantinsuyo, Quechua

THE'aymara (or sometimes aimara) is a vernacular language that has replaced many others such as Bolivia's Uru or Uchhumataqu.

According to Rodolfo Cerrón-Palomino, one of the main specialists of these two languages, it is not Quechua, but indeed Aymara which was the official language of the Inca Empire, contrary to a widespread belief..

The varieties of aymara form a linguistic subfamily with the varieties of Quechua.

THE'Inca Empire (called Tahuantinsuyu, Tahuantinsuyo Where Tawantin Suyu in Quechua, meaning "four in one" or "the whole of the four parts") was, from the XVe in the XVIe century, one of the states of Andean civilization and the largest empire in pre-Columbian America.

Its territory has in fact extended, to its maximum extent, over nearly 4,500 km in length, from the southwest of present-day Colombia (the Ancasmayo valley, and even for a while to the Río Patía, region of San Juan de Pasto), in the north, to the middle of present-day Chile (in the Río Maule), in the south, and comprising almost all of the current territories of Peru and Ecuador, as well as a significant part of Bolivia, Chile, and significant of Northwest Argentina, over an area more than three times that of France today.

Heir to pre-existing Andean civilizations, it was linked by an important network of roads of approximately 22,500 to 38,600 kilometers converging on its capital, Cuzco.
