Example text

On January , Balcarcel welcomed Francisco, a Bagname, who was accompanied by eighteen warriors; three women; Mapo, a Bagname captain; and Yosame carboan, a Siano captain 15 (Portillo : –). On January , , Balcarcel received the visit of Pablo, a Manos Prietas, who was accompanied by eight members of his group, the Gueiquesale, BapacoraPinanaca (Bacopora and Pinanaca), and Espopolame (Portillo : –). On April , , Balcarcel received Don Salvador, a Bobosarigame, who came accompanied by Don Bernabe, a Contotore, and by Don Esteban, who was, by then, called Capitán Grande by the other Natives (Portillo : –).

Fr. Larios stated that in February () he planned to travel to the north side of the Rio Grande to visit Don Esteban, who was there with all his people. He was also sending another friar to the Catujano to continue to catechize them and to make arrangements for the trip Balcarcel was to make north of the Rio Grande (Larios b: ). On December , , Fr. Larios and Fr. Manuel de la Cruz brought before Balcarcel Juan de la Cruz, a Bobole; Francisco, a Gicocoge; and a non-Christian Yorica, who, with their people, were gathered on the Río Sabinas.

The same would hold true for the alliance between the Bacora and the Pinanaca (micro-social) and the alliance of the Bacora, the Pinanaca, and the Gueiquesale (macro-social). Quite possibly, these alliances were restricted to certain spheres of social and economic interaction. The next round of ambassadorial delegations started with the Catujano and their allies, followed by the Bobosarigame (who came accompanied by Don Esteban and Don Bernabe, a Contotore), followed, once again, by the Catujano and their allies.
