Abstract

The documentary history of the pueblo of Jemez begins with the Coronado expedition of 1954, the events of which were chronicled by Pedro de Castaneda. This first visit of the Spanish to Jemez was under the command of Captain Francisco Barrionuevo, and took place in the fall of the year. Barrionuevo was sent northward up the Jemez Valley for the purpose of exploring the Jemez province, which was already so named. Castaneda, who accompanied Barrionuevo, says that there were seven towns in the Jemez province, and three others in the province of Aguas Callentes. The latter province, according to Simpson, is the Jemez Hot springs region.
