Traditionally, Quichua people have based their identity on the village
level. There are many diverse communities which speak the Quechua language.
The movement of Quichua Ethno-Nationalism is about the unity of the thousands
of villages which share this language. Quichua communities have survived
for centuries despite countless obstacles. This page attempts to
document the Quichua language and culture from their origins in Ancient
Peru and Ecuador, through Inca and Spanish domination, to its current manifestations
in the modern world.
