Summary
Ugarte y Loyola relates peacefulness of reduced Indian tribes (Seris, Tepocas, Tiburones) near Pitic, reports bountiful crop produced by them. Suggests a suspension of rations, justifies suspension by advising government to give arable land to peaceful Indians. Given land, the Indians could grow their own food, and this would eliminate the expense of rations. Proposes establishment of Pueblo for these Indians, reasoning that 1) an official settlement would stabilize peace and 2) establish a long-term source of subsistence. In establishing such a Pueblo, an official should be sent into the field to organize Indian groups and learn their names. Ugarte y Loyola ends by expressing hope that future reduced tribes will follow this example. Virrey responds, enthusiastic. (S. Gibbs, March 1988)
