Teaching how colonized people resisted can be challenging. Because the colonizers often controlled what stories got told and what sources were preserved, we often only know about failed uprisings. While uprisings frequently occurred, most people resisted in smaller ways that were not violent. It can be challenging for students to see these smaller forms of resistance, but that was not the case in early seventeenth-century Colonial Peru.
