Quechuan, also known as runa simi ("people's language"), is a Native American language family spoken primarily in the Andes region of South America, derived from a common ancestral language. It is the most widely spoken language family of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, with a total of 8 million to 10 million speakers. Today, Quechua has the status of an official language in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru, along with Spanish.
