Before The Fourth Labyrinth
The staff showed Manco where to build his city, which supposedly became Cuzco. However, this view was challenged by the Cuiqawa tribe, who claim to be the descendants of Manco. After being betrayed by his friends, Manco returned to Pacariqtambo with the staff and his family, and the tribe grew over the following centuries.
The Fourth Labyrinth
Nathan Drake was hired by drug dealer Ramón Valdez to find the staff three years before the events of Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth. Once the staff was in his possession, Valdez betrayed Nate and tried to kill him. Nate escaped, and three years later was hired by the Cuiqawa tribe to regain the staff. Knowing that it was rightfully theirs, Nate agreed to help them and stole the staff from Valdez.
