Scope and Contents
This is a carbon copy of a typed manuscript entitled "The Cipias and Ypotlapiguas," which appeared in
Arizona Quarterly, vol. 12, no. 2, 1956, Summer, written by Albert H. Schroeder. This manuscript is accompanied by a photo print of a hand-drawn
map of Arizona, New Mexico, Chihuahua, and Sonora.
This is a translation into English of a document written in Spanish in 1646 by Franciscan friar Thomas Manso. It concerns
what turned out to be a temporary incursion of Franciscan missionaries into northeastern Sonora in the first half of the seventeenth
century, an incursion that brought them into contact with a group of Indians whom they labeled Cipias, who by another name
are called Ymiris. Schroeder suggests these people may have been either Opata or Northern Piman Indians (O'odham) in the vicinity
of modern-day Imuris, Sonora.
