This is a comparative study of the household economies of resettled laborers working for the state and the nobility (called mitmaqkuna and yanakuna, respectively) from the South American Inka empire (circa 1400-1530s). Hu's research at Yanawilka in the Vilcas Huaman province and Quave's research at Cheqoq in Maras, Cusco lend insight into the daily lives, wealth, and acculturation of marginalized populations within the Inka imperial domain.
