The Inca

The Incas were an incredible South American group. To begin, the Incas had a
complex society. The Incas had 3 parts of their society. The Sapa Inca was the chief.
They also had a Noble class which was under the Sapa Inca. They also had
commoners who did all the jobs. They also had a big diverse agriculture. They grew
foods like potatoes, mazi, and corn. They also lived in an interesting location. The
absolute location is 13° S and 72° W. The relative location is that they are south of La
Paz and north of Chilli. The Incas are a very interesting society.

In addition to having a complex society, variety of agriculture and their location. The
Incas were tremendously impacted by their beliefs. To begin, they chose the chief

Where in the World…
Were the Inca Located?

Map from What is the relative and approximate
absolute location of the center of the
Inca Empire?

I think that the absolute location of
the Inca’s is about 13° S and 72° W.
The Inca’s are south of La Paz. They
are also North of Chile.

What might the climate be like in this
location based on the latitude and
The high altitude made the
tempetures cool during the day and
cold during the night.
How would this affect the way people
live in this area?
IPeople would need to dress for the
cooler tempetures and grow food that
were adapted to the higher elevation.

the tribes that were conquered. They were often left as the
leaders of their tribes. Tax collectors each family or ayllu
often had a tax collector that kept watch over them. They

keepers had to track who had paid their taxes and where
the supplies were stored, there were many record keepers
in the government.

a higher social class. They worked on crafts such as pottery
and gold jewelry for the nobles. Farmers were at the bottom of
the social class. They worked long hard days.
