Summary
Dirucaca, an Indian of Pecuries, is accused of multiple her daughters; of practicing witchcraft, reputedly involving the deaths of a number of persons, including some women who rejected his illicit advances; of inciting the natives of his town to ignore and defy the teachings of the Christian priests. There is some convincing evidence against him, and he is imprisoned. But, then, it is discovered that he knows the location of a silver mine. In exchange for showing the Spanish authorities the site of the mine, the charges against dirucaca are dropped and he is released; with the stipulations that he can no longer reside in Pecuries, and that he pay the procedural costs of the suit against him; (twenty one pesos). (Lloyd Kendall) (1980)
