The Quechua are descendents of the Incas, who once reigned in South America. After the Spanish Conquest, the Quechua became marginalized and tend to live in more rural areas. They often depend on farming for their sustenance. However, many Quechua people also live in large metropolitan areas. The majority of Quechua people groups are considered least reached (less than 4% of the population are evangelical Christians). People widely embrace traditional religious practices – the Quechua have blended Christian beliefs into their practices, leading to a highy syncretistic belief system. They also share a common spiritual system with other people in the Andean region, including a belief in Mother Earth and mountain spirits. The Bible has been translated into several Quechua-language dialects, but there are few communities of Christ followers.
