Summary
"More than two centuries after the Coronado Expedition first set foot in the region, the northern frontier of New Spain in the late 1770s was still under attack by Apache raiders. Mark Santiago's ... account of Spanish efforts to subdue the Apaches illuminates larger cultural and political issues in the colonial period of the Southwest and northern Mexico ... Santiago traces the origins of the deportation policy to Spain's 1772 regulations for presidios. The reservation system introduced a decade later used the threat of deportation to encourage 'peaceful Apaches' to cooperate with the Spanish. Despite years of dispute among Spanish officials as to the efficacy of this approach, deportations continued until the outbreak of the Mexican War for Independence in 1810 ... The jar of severed hands deepens our understanding of the dynamics of the relationship between Indian tribes and colonial powers in Southwest borderlands"--Jacket
