Working with the records of Court decisions, this article offers a synthesis of the most important norms set down in the 16th century for regulating the Indian people of Peru. The legal dispositions demonstrate the Crown's interest in allowing the aboriginal society's own institutions and customs to remain in force, which was useful for extracting the greatest possible benefit from the conquered land. Due to this permissive attitude evident in colonial legislation, it was possible for economic and social structures characteristic of Andean civilization to survive for a significantly long time. -English summary
