Witchcraft in the Southwest Spanish and Indian supernaturalism on the Rio Grande by Marc Simmons( )

18 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and held by 1,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening with a succinct review of the meaning and evolution of witchcraft in Europe and Spain, Simmons establishes the existence of many similar beliefs among native inhabitants of the New World. Moving chronologically to Spanish colonization, the author vividly conveys Spanish reactions to Pueblo life and religion, the fears of witches and other supernatural forces that plagued Spanish colonists. Emphasizing the beliefs and nature of witchcraft rather than the actual mechanics (which are secret), he follows Hispanic communities into the late 19th century. Readers learn how witchcraft fits into the Pueblo world view and how it compares and contrasts with European and Spanish varieties in such areas as motivation, types, powers, beliefs and means of acquisition

Juan de Oñate (1552-1626) was born in Zacatecas, Mexico to Cristóbal and Doña Catalina de Salazar y de la Cadena de Oñate. Both of his parents were originally from Spain. Cristóbal was of Basque ancestry and Doña was from southern Spain. The de Önates were a wealthy and powerful family in Zacatecas and Juan used the family's prominence to his advantage. In 1598 Juan led a large expedition of settlers into the upper Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico. He became the first governor of New Mexico, an administration that was filled with successes and failures and ultimately brought disgrace to Juan. In his final years he traveled to Spain and was able to retrieve some of the prestige he had known. He died in Spain while acting as mining inspector for all of Spain
