The chupalla (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃuˈpaʎa]) is a traditional Chilean horseman's hat made of straw. Many people in rural areas of Central Chile use it as well. In addition, it is often used when dancing the cueca (a Chilean folk dance) and during Chilean rodeos.
The phrase "por la chupalla", may be heard frequently in Chile. It is an interjection which, loosely translated means "what the heck!" .
