The Spanish–Indian interaction in the Citará province of the Chocó that was essentially peaceful for a long period of time ended when a mass Indian rebellion broke out on January 15, 1684. During the uprising, Indians massacred many of the Spanish residents of Citará territory, along with Spanish traders or tratantes, black slaves, Indian servants and carriers from the interior, and even women. Spain sent three separate expeditions to rescue the survivors who were forced to take refuge in Bueso de Valdés' mine of Naurita, to capture and punish the rebel leaders, and to allow the rest of the population to return to their settlements. The conflict ended only in 1687, when the head of the Indian Quirubira, apparently the most prominent of all the rebels, was sent to Spain as proof that the Citará had finally been pacified. This chapter examines Indian protests and rebellion in the Citará against the Spaniards between 1680 and 1684.
