From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mitma was a policy of forced resettlement employed in pre-Columbian times. This practice involved moving some members of an ethnic group from their home territory to distant lands. The objective was to ensure both loyalty to the state and better utilization of land resources.

The term mitma is a Quechua word meaning "foreigner".[1]
