In order to monitor the distribution of people and goods throughout the empire, the Inca recognized certain social statuses of great importance in regulating the production of goods and the reckoning of the tax. Native craft specialties were recognized, as each citizen who paid tax in a traditional specialty was granted that status (Cobo libro 12, cap. XXVII; 1964:119). A chakra kamayoq ("field maker") was an agricultural specialist; a khipu kamayoq was a quipu reader (Cobo libro 12, cap. XXXVII; 1964:143); a qompi kamayoq was a "fine qompi cloth maker" (Cobo libro 12, cap.

For example, the ranking of Cuzco's panaqas, or royal descent groups, that was established by Pachacuti was reformulated by Huayna Capac as the families realigned themselves with respect to the ruling family (see Rowe 1985:68-73, tables 6-10).

In another legend, his fields were miraculously spared from a seven-year drought (Pachacuti 1968:301). Also unusual for the Incas is the fact that Amaro Topa Inca was a member of the panaqa of his brother, Topa Inca, rather than of his father. This is an apparent violation of the Inca rule of inheritance outlined so clearly in the chronicles.
