The name “Ocloyas” comes from the original people who inhabited the region, derived from okllu which means “brave and fertile woman”. However, due to its phonetics, the term can also be derived from Okkayay, which means “getting into the flesh” or gaining weight, while etymologically it can come from aymara Ocollo, tadpole or frog. According to Hispanic documents, the origin of the Ocloyas people dates back to present-day Peru, from where its inhabitants were forcibly transferred, following the Inca custom of uprooting entire groups. There is little data on the culture of the Ocloyas, although it is known that they were a peaceful and working people, who had a very good relationship with the Otaguacas and other ethnic groups in the region.
