This one banged around in my head ever since i read about the Incan ruins, and other sources. The first one, oddly enough, was the CGI movie Beowulf. Personally, I didn't like the movie, but one scene stuck out for me. Years after he killed Grendel, Beowulf and his buddies are chilling in Heorot Hall, and there were a pair of midget (is that the correct term? Sorry if it's not) reenactors showing Beowulf defeat a puppet Grendel. The Grendel puppet was made of an ox skull, while the actor for Beowulf was a ripped little dude with big pecs. Now skip ahead a decade or so, and I read about the theater/market square in Huanoco Pampa. Well if it's a theater then there have to be performances there, right? And what better way to bring in the crowds then a story about a hero fighting a monster? Or you could show nudity, but I don't want to do that. Anyway, in this world the dwarves live alongside Pleistocene animals like saber tooth tigers, glyptodonts, and giant ground sloths. Plenty of inspiration for monsters, especially for a society of short people. 

On a side note, I drew the storyteller in the corner last, and I have no idea how the real Incans wrote stuff down. Stone tablets? Scrolls? Tapestries? I figured a book would be good enough for now.

This one is innovative to boot! Great idea! May I share your new Incan Dwarf concept drawings and descriptions over on the Ninth Age Forum as well, to inspire others? I really like your worldbuilding here!

As far as I'm aware, the preferred term is little person.
