Thefilm GreatInca Rebellionprovides a proof that there was a battle between indigenous people.These were the Spanish and Inca people. The movie helps address themany myths that most scholars and educated people suspect of whatactually took place during those days (Johnston36).History reports argue that the Inca Empire was conquered by someSpanish military men, but with the help of some crime-lab science andarcheology studies, new evidence is being released that will revealthe truth about the Inca Empire. The story of the Great IncaRebellion begins in a cemetery full of skeletons with bones crashedand having deep cuts. This gives a clue about the sixteenth centurywar between the Inca Empire and the Spanish soldiers (Johnston42).Some of the scientists in the movie argue that the physical evidenceon the remains of those who died during the war may have taken overtwenty years.
Thepoint focused in the movie is explaining how the fewer Spanishconquistadors conquered the Incan Empire of more than twelve millionpeople. The Inca was regarded as the largest Kingdom in pre-ColumbianAmerica (Johnston34).Studies demonstrate that the Inca controlled the most enlightenedculture in the entire world. They had constructed the city of MachuPicchu before the Spanish conquerors arrived. The Inca culture hadadvanced systems and they valued gold in their culture. They hadlarge deposits of gold. Traditional historical reports argue thatFrancisco Pizarro who was the leader of the Spanish army come to Incain search for power and treasure (Johnston49).
Inthe movie, it is evidenced that the Spanish conquistadors were lessthan 200 military men. They invaded the Empire in a bloody battlethat led to the deaths of many innocent people (Johnston57).One of the reasons that made them bring down the Incan Empire wasbecause they had more advance weapons and used horses to attack. Inthe movie, they are shown how they easily attacked the Inca peoplewhile riding on horseback. The second reason is that the Spanish mencarried some infectious diseases. They were resistant to the diseaseand hence could not be infected (Johnston73).The Inca people were defenseless to the disease carried thus theysuccumbed and surrendered. Although they defeated the Inca people, ittook them years to achieve this.
