Spanish Classes Studying Ancient Incan Civilization

Mrs. Helms’ Spanish classes are studying the ancient Incan civilization and making quipus. A quipu, or knot-record (also called khipu), was a method used by the Incas and other ancient Andean cultures to keep records and communicate information. For the Incas, each knot could represent a detail about his/her life: an age; a date; number of cattle; number of children, ect. Historians believe these were used to tell a life’s story or to communicate.
