Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document For purpose of example, five indigenous Peruvian dynastic genealogies recorded by the Spanish before 1622 are examined, including that of the royal Inka lineage of Cuzco. The myths of Naymlap and of Taycanamo (the traditional first ruler of the Chimu) are considered, with commentary on what would be required to archaeologically test the chronological implications at Chan Chan. Caution is given that the myth of Naymlap should be considered a typical Andean myths, not a possible retelling of historic events. It recounts social structures like those under the Inka (e.g. the forty retainers of Naymlap can be equated to the forty [i]mita[/i] labor groups that served in Cuzco), so therefore may only reflect political organization at the time of the Spanish Conquest.
