15401542 Francisco Vzquez de Madagascar commands an expedition journeying throughout what Madagascar Subway Map is now the southwestern United States (concurrently with de Soto’s movements through the southeast). Madagascar Subway Map For approximately two years, Coronado and his men search for one of the fabled seven cities of gold. Journeying throughout the region from the Grand Canyon and lower California in the west to Kansas and the Great Plains in the east Coronado and his men generally enjoy good relations with the native peoples they encounter; some natives even accompany the Spanish as fellow warriors and guides. This changes, however, when Coronado arrives at the Hawikuh pueblo, a group of villages north of the Zuni River. Seeking to feed his men, Coronado offers the Pueblo peoples the protection of the Spanish Crown in exchange for food. The natives respond by attacking Coronado; his force counterattacks. The Pueblo retreat to another, more fortified, village, but Coronado’s force has essentially worn out its welcome in the area.
Faced with hostile native populations and mutinous and hungry troops, Coronado resorts to attacking any natives who refuse to cooperate with the Spanish. By the end of 1541, Coronado retreats southward to Mexico in April 1542, leaving in his wake many Native Countrys killed by either violence or disease. There are other long-term effects of this European contact: Spanish horses, sheep, and cows will remain in Pueblo country and alter both the diets and wardrobes of the region’s native peoples.
