CHIALIQUICHIAMA (chee-ah-lee-kee-chee-ah'-tna), Peruvian soldier, born in the latter part of the 15th century; died at Cajamarca, Peru, in l533. He had won five battles against the Spaniards before his king, Atahualpa, was defeated and made a prisoner by Pizarro, and had great influence among the other Indian warriors. Atahualpa, while in prison at Cajamarea, called that general to that place, and the Spaniards also made him a prisoner, rearing he would begin war again. After the execution of Atahualpa, 29 August, 1533, Pizarro went with his troops toward Cuzco ; but the natives attacked them several times in such a good order and concert that they suspected Chialiquichiama was in secret communication with the Indians and directing their operations. That suspicion was enough to decide his fate, and Pizarro sentenced him to be burned alive. Chialiquichiama was offered a less painful death if he would become a Christian ; but he refused to be baptized, and died according to the sentence, remonstrating to the last moment against the actions of Pizarro.
