The origin of the Incas and their migration

The origin of the Inca people, is to tell the story of their ancestors is uncertain. It came from the Lake Titicaca before moving to Cuzco or another region. Now, just highlight a remarkable Inca constructions. Quasiement It is certain that the plan of Cuzco and the fortress of Sacsayhuaman was built by the Incas. The method of construction of these cities in this research is identical. It may be hoped that uncovering the oldest cities with this singularity, we discover the point of departure for this type of construction but also an origin of the Inca dynasty. From our observations, the cities with such architecture are, for now, mostly north of Cuzco, and not in the south, where lies Lake Titicaca. It should therefore analyze all of the ruins located between Lake Titicaca (Tipon, Piquillacta, Rumicolca, Rachqi) and most remote Inca city in the north, and then find the oldest having this peculiarity in the construction. If the oldest or the oldest found in North, as I suppose, when the first Incas would come to Cuzco from the North, not the South. Thus, the position Tampu Tocco as being south of Cuzco would be refuted.
The Nazca lines seem to be proof graph the oldest in Peru indicate a willingness to make shapes from the sky. It would seem they have influenced the Inca art at a time in history, perhaps through a civilization through the Huari example, known techniques for assimilating conquered peoples. The architectural evolution of cities and could give us information on the migration of the Andean peoples. In addition some of Nazca lines representing animals of the Amazon. Maybe so that through an exchange of technique from the Amazon that the Nazca tried to realize such designs.

Today archaeologists are seeking the origin of the Incas to the south (Lake Titicaca and Tiwanaku empire) or east (Amazonia and Pusharo). Their error is in my opinion because it is based on legends, but also on pottery and finds from Cuzco, the capital. But the legends and history seem to agree on one fact, the Inca dynasty is not a native of Cuzco. So there were other people in Cuzco before. Legend binding Manco Capac at Lake Titicaca could very well come from a mixture of two legends. Some of the people living in Cuzco from the Lake Titicaca can be, for pride, would indicate the origin of the Incas in the Puno region. But it could also be a trick of the Inca dynasty to legitimize the taking of Cuzco, knowing that their origin was in an area which was already true. According to the modus operandi of the Incas vis-à-vis the peoples conquered, and that they require the heads of tribes to own a home in Cusco, we might think of another form of deception on their part to retain people. When Hayna Tumipampa Capac dies, the capital of the Inca empire is now Ecuador. Proof can be once again the choice of a capital to expand the empire. But if Cusco used to expand the empire southward Tumipampa have served to expand the empire to the north. What was actually before the Inca capital Cusco. The only name that could indicate their former capital seems to be Tampu tocco.

The Urubamba River called Vilcamayu or sacred river. A name can be very important because it starts from the Sacred Valley to throw much further in the Amazon. Is the search for the source of the river could motivate the ancestors of the Inca dynasty to move along the course of the River. Is the change of name to Urubamba was a way to hide the importance of this river and what we could find in the descendant.

And today?

Without looking for evidence, trying to know what happened the last Inca. The Spanish army was able to reach easily and Vilcabamba captured Tupac Amaru and his followers while they were taking flight. It seems obvious that all the faithful of Tupac Amaru were not captured. The remaining parties in the north or west of Vilcabamba. This may be to prevent the Spaniards go further north and discover other major cities as the last Inca emperor went resistant, allowing his people to live in peace then. These will live apart. After years of rebellion and that ultimate defeat, for them it indicates the end of combat. They certainly know the location of the towns they left behind, Machu Picchu, Choqequiraw. But these cities too close to the border area controlled by the Spaniards are too exposed to settle, probably explaining their abandonment. There remains the other major cities of the empire north and west, may be Paititi. And this surely the remaining Incas took refuge and live.
They have to live there quietly for years in spying on the Spanish. After the influx of Spanish in Peru, it appears clear that any hope of regaining power was lost. The population has over the years, probably divided into two groups: those deciding to go mingle with the Spanish and those remaining in the small group descended from the Incas. It is likely that today, some Peruvians living in the area north of Espiritu Pampa are descendants of the Incas. The existence of large cities may not have been lost, the gold that was there may even be used to enrich a part of this population. But this should be a closely guarded secret. What event could explain the loss of information on the location of other major Inca cities? A massacre in order to prevent anyone from revealing the secret? A collective decision to mingle with the invaders but not to tell anyone about the location of these cities. It is likely that Vilcabamba is not the limit Amautas northern kingdom. Other cities as beautiful as Machu Picchu and Choquequirao have strong chances of being further north or further west.
