  1. Chincha people

    The Chincha were a Native American people of the Andes in south central Peru. In pre-Columbian times, they were conquered by the Incas. According to historian Friedrich Ratzel, the conquistador Francisco Pizarro met with Chinchas, who had traditions of a distant home across the sea. But at some later date they had disappeared. They gave their name to the Chincha Islands, off the coast of Peru, and to the animal known as the chinchilla.
