Yaquis and the Empire

This chapter explores the development of Yaqui-Spanish ties during the period 1617–1700, with particular emphasis on ironies in the Yaqui mission under the Spanish empire. It discusses four themes bearing on the ironies of empire in the seventeenth century: the Yaquis' resistance to colonial rule; religion and the establishment of eight Yaqui mission towns; the Jesuits' political struggles outside the mission; and Yaqui participation in the political and economic life of northern New Spain. It also considers the role of negotiation and exchange in forging an alliance between the Yaqui people and their Spanish colonizers.
