What’s a Kipu?

knotted colored strings illustration

From the native South American language of Quechua, a Quipu or Kipu, meaning “talking knots”, is an intricate system of knotted colored strings that store and convey information. Used as a recording device for taxes, censuses, and even military data, the Quipu was very effective as a universal method of communication between groups across the region that spoke different languages, dating as far back as 2600 BCE.
