Inka Predecessors

Inka Predecessors (through June 5, 2022)

                At the time of the Spanish arrival in the Americas (beginning

with Columbus in 1492), the dominant civilization in the Andean and

Pacific coastal regions of South America was that of the Inka. Their

Empire stretched from present-day Colombia across Ecuador, Peru

and most of Bolivia, into northern Chile and Argentina. Before the

ascent and subsequent dominance of the Inka, the region was the

home of numerous cultures, many of which are only now becoming

better known.
