Summary
An account of contact between Spaniards and two tribes, Jumanes and Shulimes. These two live close by, are friendly to each other and Spaniards, trade with Spaniards, and wish to have Spaniards come and aid them in their war with Apache. A native account of arrival of Spaniards is given. The two tribes ask Spaniards, represented by 10 Jumanas captains, to return to their lands. A list of trade goods is given. Indians also wish some religious to accompany and baptize them. (C. Briggs) (1975)
