Transcript of introduction:

The Incas of Peru quickly built an extensive empire from Chile all the way up to Columbia. The Incas were the largest [pre-Columbian] empire ever to exist in the Americas. They had rugged territories in the Andes Mountains, yet they were able to forge an empire that was notable for the peace and prosperity. The greatest Incan emperor of them all was Pachacuti. Pachucuti was the founder of the Great Incan Empire in many ways. It was he who had the vision to expand the Inca territory beyond the borders of the Cuzco Valley and start his campaign of conquest that would take in much of the western half of South America.
