Ñusta Huillac was a Kolla leader who rebelled against the Spanish in Chile in 1780. She was nicknamed La Tirana (Spanish for "The Tyrant") because of her mistreatment of prisoners.

She fell in love with Vasco de Almeida, one of her prisoners, and pleaded with her people for him. After her father's death, she became the leader of a group of Inca who were brought to Chile to mine silver in Huantajaya.
