by W. George Lovell



The Cuchumátan highlands of Guatemala (see plate 1) are the most massive and spectacular non-volcanic region of all Central America. By the opening years of the sixteenth century, the Indian peoples of the Cuchumatán highlands had broken away, after two or three generations of subjugation, from the hegemony of the Quiché of Gumarcaah. Their newly won autonomy was not to last for very long. Between 1525 and 1530, native Mayan communities in the Cuchumatanes were confronted and defeated by an alien force far more formidable than anything they had come in contact with before: the might and vision of imperial Spain.
