Professor Anna Brickhouse featured in UVA Today

June 8, 2012 — As the Spanish explored the New World, a ship stopped in the Chesapeake Bay in 1561 and picked up a Native American youth, whom they took back to Spain. Baptized Don Luis de Velasco, he became an educated translator. In 1570, he accompanied a group of Jesuit priests back to his homeland, where the Spanish established a settlement, Axacán.

When a supply ship visited about 18 months later, the Spaniards found the village deserted, save for one survivor, a Creole youth named Alonso, who said that Don Luis, as he was called by the Spaniards, had murdered the priests.
