Cabeza de Vaca heads to the New World
Hello my name is Cabeza De Vaca. America here I come !
What are we doing here there is no one and nothing to do!!!
We must find gold,spread our God,and bring glory to our country!
The king and queen of Spain sent out Cabeza de Vaca to spread Christianity, gain gold, and earn glory for the country.
Enslaved by the Natives
You are now our slave!!!!!
Cabeza de Vaca was the first explorer to set out to explore the new world and was the first to set foot in Texas.
First Surgery to be Performed in Texas
Thank you !!!
I have taken out the arrowhead.
With no supplies and unclothed, Cabeza De Vaca and what was left of his crew were stranded on the Texas coast - Karankawa Territory...
Cabeza de Vaca makes it back to Spain
Finally made it back home!!!!
The Karankawa saw the Spanish in need and decided to make these helpless explorers be useful by making them slaves. Cabeza De Vaca and the rest of his crew were enslaved and forced to pick roots. They worked hard, but were taken care of and gaining more trust every day...
Cabeza De Vaca performed surgery to a Karankawan with an arrow to his side and very near his heart. He was in constant pain, but Cabeza De Vaca was able to save him...
I feel so much better!!
Cabeza De Vaca was trusted among the native Texans, so they let him become a trader within bands and tribes. And after 10 years, in 1537, he was finally able to return to Spain...
