Historical Overview Section

The Cañari inhabited the territory of the modern provinces of Azuay and Cañar in Ecuador. They are particularly noted for their resistance against the Inca Empire. Eventually conquered by the Inca shortly before the arrival of the Spanish, the Cañari would later ally with the Spanish against the Inca. Today, the population of Cañari, which includes many mestizos, numbers only in the thousands.

Their greatest significance was the defense against numerous Incan armies for many years. Through wars and marriages, the Inca Empire conquered their territory under the lead of Huayna Capac to the north. The Cañaris were loosely assimilated into the vast empire, allowed to manage their own affairs but adopting a new language.
The tribe existed largely around the Tumebamba area. Due in part to Incan influence and mandate, Cañari construction reportedly rivaled that of the Incan capital, Cuzco. Of particular repute was the impressive and beautiful architecture of Tumebamba, which has often been referred to as the "second Cuzco."
During the Inca Civil War between the sons of Huayna Capac, the Cañaris chose to support Huáscar, despite being positioned in the northern area inherited by the son and heir Atahualpa. Initially, Huáscar's generals Atoc and Hango were successful, defeating Atahualpa's army and capturing many of his soldiers, including seizure of the large cities Cajamarca and Tumebamba (which was a real party town before the conquest... and afterwards too).

Aided by his father's loyal generals, Atahualpa managed to rout the Huáscaran army in the battles of Mullihambato and Chimborazo. This forced the interlopers back to the south. He captured and executed Huascar's generals and executed the Cañari supporters once he reached Tumebamba. Túpac Yupanqui conquered the Huancabambas, the most southern of the Cañari allies. When Francisco Pizarro arrived at Tumbes, he received news that the Cañari were against the government of Atahuallpa. The Cañari hoped the Spanish people would liberate them from the Incas, and Pizarro included the Cañari among his troops to face Atahuallpa and Inca resistance. In 1583, Cañari and Spanish soldiers defeated the Inca in the battle of Sacsayhuamán.

UK Bookstore

You can make the bookstore show only the books for the army you are setting up the page for. You need to change the line above where it says "node=0"by replacing the number "0" with the right code. You can find that by going to the Bookshop page, navigating to the right page, and holding your mouse over link to that army on the right hand menu. The node number you need to replace "0" with will show up in the bar at the bottom of your screen! Don't worry if you can't find it - I'll get round to sorting it out eventually
