You will find here the different branches of families with surname Cama in Peru. Is not clear if the name Cama, widespread in Peru, comes from the precolumbians ancestors, surely from the name "Ccama" or "Camac" in language "Quechua", or from some Catalan people with Cama name that he came to the "virreinato" of Peru with the conquest. Perhaps both possibilities are correct. On the one, we find people with Cama name unrelated with the Hurtado de Mendoza family, with much political power in the "virreinato", and on the other hand, we know that indigenous people with the surname "Ccama" changed to "Cama" for more prestige.
BETWIN MARTÍ CAMA AND THE PRIEST OF ROMANYÀ

We have accompanied the transcription with several explanations for making the text more understandable (18 pages).

"CACIQUE" OF PERU
Pedro José Cama Calderon in Peru (pjcama [@] hotmail.com) has sent to us a copy of a testament done in the year 1776 by the principal chief Gabriel Cama Condor of Macari village in the Lampa's province. We do not know if he was an indigenous chief or he was a descendant of Catalans, because also the invaders were obtaining this title instead of the native nobles fallen in misfortune.
