Between Resistance and Adaptation
Liverpool University Press

After the expeditions of 1638–1640 failed to bring about the pacification and settlement of the Chocó frontier, the Spanish Crown had to rethink, in Antioquia and Santa Fe, its strategy to colonise the region. Juan Velez de Guevara attributed this failure to advance colonisation to the difficulties he and his men encountered in trying to vanquish the Indians who lived dispersed along the rivers that intersected the Chocó. It took the Spanish Crown more than twenty years to make another attempt to subdue the indigenous peoples of the Chocó and colonise the region. In November 1664, Spain was advised by Don Diego de Egües y Beaumont, the new president of the audiencia of Santa Fe, to resort to a ‘war or conquest’ in order to finally conquer the peoples of the Chocó. This chapter looks at renewed Spanish incursions into the Chocó in 1645–1668 and again in 1669–1673, one from Antioquia and another from Popayán.
