Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is an ethnohistorical examination of some facets of Chimu government, drawn from early Colonial documents. Evidence for duality in Chimu socio-political organization proves inconclusive. Late sixteenth century court cases indicate that the Moche Valley consisted of small polities ruled by local lords who, in turn, were subjects of a lord of the larger ethnic group. Along the North Coast of Peru, power passed to a brother before being inherited by the next generation. Relations between the highlands and the coast in the north and south of Peru are also described, especially the push-pull between the highlands and the coast for water rights, water use, and canal intakes. The Chimu Capac’s uprising forced the dispersal or resettlement of many Chimu peoples. Place names, include names of canals or bodies of water, provide some evidence for where they may have been.
