Since ancient times in Peru there is a deep belief in gods, spirits, deities, the worshipping of nature and artefacts. Passed on from one generation to another, some of these beliefs try to explain the origins, creation of humankind, natural phenomena, and death. Others describe the nature and function of divinities, while still others provide models of righteous behavior by relating the adventures of heroes or the misfortunes of arrogant humans. These beliefs create the base for legends, folklore, myths, and the culture of each period they appear.
Like most ancient peoples, the Incas and their contemporaries worshipped multiple gods. Yet there was an unmistakable tendency for each group to recognize a single god as supremely significant, at least so far as its own tribal fortunes were concerned.
