Cabeza de Vaca

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen the film Cabeza de Vaca (1991) by Nicholas Echevarria, about the Spanish explorer who landed in Florida in the 16th century, was captured by the native Indian tribes of the area and eventually was mentored, accepted, and became a great healer? It is a fascinating film. Here is a website with more info.

I've read Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca's accounts of his eight years living with the tribes and it really makes one pause.
