Some people in Chile call pejoratively 'cholo' to peruvian mestizos. I think almost all Latin America were made of 'mestizo' (mixed) people. though 'cholo' have some Andean Inca, Quechua or Aymará ancestry, like some people in North of Chile and Argentina, Most of Bolivia and Perú. I guess all 'cholos' share an awesome heritage: the Inca Empire, one of the most developed cultures of Pre-European America, along with Mexican Maya and Azteca cultures.

Cholo is a "mestizo". Son of a European and an Native American. Goodbye young friend.
