Amazon Rainforest Tours and Travel | The Indigenous People of the Peru Amazon

As in all parts of the world, the indigenous peoples of the Peru Amazon cling to a timeless way of life in a rapidly changing world. Meddling with the Amazonian tribes is not just a recent phenomenon. At one time, the Incas considered areas of the Amazon part of their empire. With Machu Picchu just 100 miles south of the Manu, getting to the rainforest wasn't much of a feat for a civilization capable of building 14,000 miles of roads. It was a different story once they got there. The Peru Amazon was located in the northeast corner of the empire, a region the Incas called "Antisuyu." Repeated attacks by the "Antis" made bringing the forest tribes under Inca governance considerably more problematic than other regions the Incas had subdued.
