South American Religion
The people who lived in South and Central America before 1500 were polytheistic - they believed in many different gods. Because they lived pretty near one another, some of their gods were pretty much the same, but other gods were different from culture to culture. All of the Central American and South American religious traditions involved animal sacrifice, and in some cases also human sacrifice.
