Friar de Niza 1539 Expedition

In 1539 March 7th, Father Friar Marco de Nica (Niza) departed the small town of Saint Michael in the Province of Culiacan, and embarked on a journey into the north just 1 year prior to Coronado and his devastating actions towards the indigenous. The Friar is regarded by the Spanish and a majority of historians as one of the first Europeans to venture into the west and discovering the place known to them as Cibola and or the place of 7 cities of Cibola. However, despite what the Spanish explorers or historians of today and the past believe… None of them ever found the place referred to as the 7 Cities of Cibola, Septem (Seven) Ciuitatum (Cities) Patria (Patrimony or Inheritance) and the Friar wasn't the first... not even close... they are free to believe as they will…

The following portion of his journey occurred very near if not at the place you see on the map crop above cited as Ceuola which is likely the area of today’s Hopi reservation. The place the Indians he encounter described to him through Sign Language, as being much further to the North as you can see on the map of earlier origins… Keep in mind, Friar de Niza was not necessarily on a crusade to convert the indigenous… else wise, why was he inquiring concerning precious metals?... However this is not my reasons for this article today… I just felt like getting some facts straight… the Friar and his colleagues encountered nothing but hostile or standoffish tribes all the way up the coast, until he had crossed a vast desert and with mountains in his north view, a group of Indians which marveled to see him as if some long lost family member had returned…

Occasionally as I do what I do… browsing through the many histories of the past and I happen upon something that causes my jaw to drop… I have posted this before and as I recall, no one saw what I saw… let’s see if you see it… What I am referring to requires a little bit of religion knowledge… more specifically Book of Mormon, to those of you who do not subscribe… just enjoy the article… as it is interesting, regardless…
