Urracá (d. 1531), Panamanian indigenous leader, one of the most romanticized figures in the country, and a symbol of Panamanian patriotism. For nine years he fought the Spaniards Gaspar de Espinosa and Pedrarias Dávila in what is now Veraguas and Natá. Although he was captured once by the Spaniards, he was able to escape. His encounters with the Spaniards are described in Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas's Historia general de los hechos de los castellanos en las islas y tierra firme del mar océano (1549–1625).
