    Atahualpa and Pizarro
    I hate this job…
    A clash of cultures
    By: Jake Diozzi
    Viracocha: the creator god.
    Francisco Pizarro and his buddies.
  • Our Inca Empire
    In 1532, the Inca Empire was HUGE! It had about 37,000,000 people! It stretched from Ecuador all the way down to about ⅔ of Chile! Its capital city is Cuzco. Our agriculture is great, our hunting and our fishing skills are great. I, Atahualpa, love the food, especially the maize (corn) we grow on the lush mountainsides.
  • How the Inca Empire Came to Be
    Our empire came to be because of our second leader, Sapa Inca Pachacuti-CusiYupanqui, who ceased war against the Tribe of Chankas (now Apurimac). The Inca had won! After the war, Yupanqui and his son, Tupac, brought much of the Andes and north of Peru over to Inca control.
  • The Benefits of the Inca
    We had a lot of techniques we use to grow and catch food like maize, beans, potatoes, and meat. We grow the food by making terraces all along the mountainsides that we have. It makes more room for crops to grow. We catch our food by either catching it in a net (water animals) or killing it with a spear (land animals like deer for example). Below is a slingshot we used also to kill land animals.
  • The Stranger
    But rumors were spread all throughout Cuzco. The rumors were that there was a man, a hundred men at that, riding on strange animals that was only described as “casual”. They wore the most ugly metal armor that covered their arms, pants and even their hands! They also had these shoes that covered everything so that you couldn’t see any trace of foot. And metal hats that had a point at the top with feathers. I did not think he was a threat. I invited him for a feast in the city.
  • Clothes: What’s Different?
    Pizarro and his Men
    Francisco Pizarro and his men have clothes [armor] that are high in defence, but not in Inca charm…
    The Inca
    The Inca however have weird clothes [loincloths and sandals] because they don’t have enough products that you can make regular clothes or armor.
  • Horses: Strange to the Inca…
    Pizarro and his Men
    To the Inca, Francisco Pizarro and his men had these strange and unwelcome animals that were scary to them.
    The Inca
    But the Inca had some other animal: a llama. The Spaniards had llamas in Spain, so they weren’t scared
  • The Ambush
    After the feast, something surprising and frightening happened: I was held for ransom by the strange man! Oh, and by the way, his name was Francisco Pizarro. The ransom was about $50,000,000 in gold! He agreed to the bargain. After I paid him however, he instantly strangled me to death. After that, a brutal war started. It tore up the land like a little boy opening up a clamshell. The war raged on and on. The strange men had won all because of disease [smallpox] and more superior weapons. That was the end. The end for the Inca empire.
  • The War and the Result
  • Archeologists and Mummies
    Today, a lot of scientists are trying to find new mummies of the lost empire. It may have been forgotten on top of the ground, but not under the ground…
  • END.
