Easter Island (Rapa Nui: Rapa Nui, Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Chilean island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle.

Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park.

Polynesian people most likely settled on Easter Island sometime between 700 to 1100 CE, and created a thriving and industrious culture as evidenced by the island’s numerous enormous stone moai and other artifacts.

Tiwanaku (Spanish: Tiahuanaco or Tiahuanacu), a Pre-Columbian archaeological site in western Bolivia, South America. The area around Tiwanaku may have been inhabited as early as 1500 BC as a small agricultural village. During the time period between 300 BC and AD 300, Tiwanaku is thought to have been a moral and cosmological center for the Tiwanaku empire to which many people made pilgrimages.

The Puquina language has been pointed out as the most likely language of the ancient inhabitants of Tiwanaku. Some theories claim that “Qhapaq Simi”, the cryptic language of the Inca nobility of Peru, was closely related to Puquina, while the “Runa Simi” or Quechua was the language of the people.
