The Great Inka Road
The Inka called their empire Tawantinsuyu, which means "the four regions together." At its peak, the empire covered much of western South America. The Inka Empire rose rapidly and burned bright. In little more than 100 years, it grew from a small kingdom in the highlands of Peru to become the largest empire in the Americas. The Qhapaq Ñan, or Road of the Inka, made this triumph possible.
Come to the National Museum of the American Indian to see the exhibition in person or learn more about the Inka Road and Empire on the exhibition's website: The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire.
