: : : Well, I imagine it began when the Conquistadors invaded the areas now called Peru and Mexico, enslaved and killed the native americans there, and lay claim to the gold and silver they found there.....hmmmmm? The only native americans they kept alive were those working as slaves in the mines and as pack animals to the ports.
: : : As I understand it, there are still problems in Peru between those of Spanish ancestry and those of Indian ancestry, no?
: : : Clear it up any?
