Diriangen was the tribal leader of the Chorotegas of Nicaragua. He fought against the Spanish in the 1520s, keeping them at bay for a time. Part of his legacy can be seen in the words from the famous folk song "Nicaragua, Nicaraguita" where the words are as follows:
- Ay Nicaragua, Nicaragüita, la flor más linda de mi querer,
- abonada con la bendita, Nicaragüita, sangre de Diriangen.
- Oh Nicaragua, the most beautiful flower of my love,
- Fertilized with the blessed blood of Diriangen.
