Language spoken in South America
The Aymara or Aimara are an indigenous native nation in the Andes and Altiplano regions of South America; about 2 million live in Bolivia, Peru and Chile. They lived in the region for many centuries before becoming a subject people of the Inca, and later of the Spanish in the 16th century. With the Spanish American Wars of Independence Aymaras became subjects of Bolivia and Peru and after the War of the Pacific Chile acquired an Aymaran population. Aymaras themselves make a significant distinction between Bolivian and Chilean Aymaras.
