The ancient and modern people of the Andes are often incorrectly referred to as the "Inca." In fact, only the kings and ruling family were referred to as Inca. The closest translation for the word 'Inca' is 'king,' at least in the context by which is was used by the people of the ancient Andes. The Inca referred to their empire as the "Tawantinsuyu."
