Chimpu Ocllo was as symbol of the grandeur of an Indigenous civilization
She was Incan. Incan was a title of nobility and only used about the royal families from what we today know as part of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia, northern and central Chile, and parts of Argentina, the Inca Empire
Palla Chimpu Ocllo or Isabel Suárez Chimpu Ocllo
Palla Chimpu Ocllo was born in 1523 in Cusco, Peru. She was the proud daughter of the Peruvian earth, Pachamama, and the sun, Inti which are both symbols of Peru’s ancient and contemporary identity.
She was taught as a child to love her culture and respected her ancestors, her family and sacred Incan cities
As an Incan she had the privilege of servants. In conjunction, she had an abundance of food and access to certain luxuries, such as jewelry, and textiles with embroidered designs. She also learnt how to weave and how to read herself.
Later in her life she married a Spanish business man by the name of Juan del Pedroche and had two daughters with him.
Sadly in 1571 Palla Chimpu Ocllo died at the young age of thirty three
