Sample text

They herded llamas and alpacas as pack animals and for their meat, milk, and wool. In fact, camelids were so fundamental to the Aymaran way of life that the wealth of the kingdoms was measured by the number of llamas and alpacas they owned. Like the Tiahuanaco before them, the Aymara valued trade with other groups in the eastern valleys and along the Pacific Coast. In exchange for Altiplano meats, potatoes, quinoa, and wool products, the coastal inhabitants paid with fish and salt, and the people of the subtropical valleys with corn, coca, fruit, and vegetables.

They taught them to craft and play instruments, such as harps and violins. Some of the local instruments were superior to those found in Europe at the time. Each community had an organized orchestra that performed concerts and Italian operas. Orchestral music may have captivated the Indians, thereby playing a role in developing their interest in Jesuit ideas, but perhaps more influential to the Indians was the promise by the priests that whoever chose to participate in the activities of the reducciones would be exempt from laboring in the mines of Potosí.

Today, those fields allow Bolivia to remain self-sufficient in oil production.

Historically, limited tin mining had occurred in the Potosí area, but Bolivia lacked the transportation facilities needed to export large quantities of it to European markets.
