Acuña, René
1982 [editor] Relaciones geogrdficas del siglo XVI: Guatemala.

México: Universidad Nacional Autónoma. 347p. (8 figures.)

1578-1586 — Guatemala: Zapotitlán; Atitlán
relaciones geogrdficas; Philip II; Indian population; natural resources; settlement patterns

Compared to the rich documents that exist for Mexico, the relaciones geogrdficas extant for sixteenth-century Guatemala are disappointingly few in number. Acuña's edition is a quality transcription of the Relación de Zapotitlán ( 1579) and the Relación de Santiago Atitlán ( 1585), the only two such documents that survive for all of Central America. Relaciones geogrdficas were prepared between 1578 and 1586 in response to Philip II's call for detailed inventories to be conducted throughout the Spanish Indies of local populations and resources, past and present.Indian tribute payers are often listed in relation to community of affiliation, whether cabecera (principal town) or outlying dependency (sujeto and estancia). In Acuña's edition, seven appendices augment considerably the documentary base available for consultation.In his prologue and footnotes, the editor writes with insight and authority, explaining unusual terms, providing background information, and creating a context in which the reader is easily and fruitfully guided. The original documents, which are accompanied by attractive color maps, form part of the impressive Latin American holdings of the University of Texas at Austin. Zamora Acosta ( 1976) analyzes these relaciones for his ethnography of the Lake Atitlán region in the sixteenth century and Orellana ( 1984) for her study of the Tz'utujil Mayas.
