What were the native Americans of ancient Peru called? I thought they were Incas but my teacher says that the chief of the empire was called the Inca and the people were called something else but I don't know what.

    Didn't we go through this last week? The chief of the Incan empire was Atahualpa. Pizarro captured Atahualpa and thus was able to conquer the Incas. The native Americans were pre-Colombian indians, many different tribes. Perhaps los quechuas were the ones your teacher was referring to as their language is still spoken in Peru.
