American Origins with Dana Velasco Murillo, Associate Professor of History, UC San Diego

"New Spain’s Nomadic Leaders and the Origins of Early America, 1580-1595"

For nearly four decades (c. 1550-1587) nomadic native peoples, collectively called “Chichimecas,” engaged in a violent war of resistance against the colonial state, thwarting Spain’s northward expansion into the regions that eventually became the United States Southwest. This chapter retells the history of the end of the Chichimeca War through the lens of nomadic indigenous leaders.
