peaceful and vlolent conquest
Peaceful conquest was possible when a curaca agreed to recognize the Sapa Inca as their emperor in return for a number of benefits. These benefits could include gifts, investment in public works, recognition at their investiture, interchange of women to establish family ties etc. Whether submission was due to fear of the Inca army or genuine friendship the curaca became a beneficiary of the offered gifts, but he also became subject to Inca demands: his lands had to be handed over to the estate, he had to supply labour and soldiers etc. It was a conquest through reciprocity.
