The word indio, when applied to the native highland people of Quechua origin, carries negative meanings and stereotypes among mestizo and white Peruvians. In Peru, a Native American might acquire the Spanish language, a university education, a large amount of capital, and a large degree of sophistication, but still continues to be considered an indio(Indian) in many circles and thus be an unacceptable associate or marital companion.
