Abstract

When Spain began her conquest of Central America in the early sixteenth century, she had to contend almost as much with geography as with Indian resistance. The Mayas opposed the Spanish with both the strengths and weaknesses of a decentralized civilization. There was no center to be conquered such as Tenochtitlán in the Aztec Empire, and where the submission of some tribal groups might be peaceful, others singly or in coalition gave stubborn resistance.
