PBS - THE WEST - Francisco Vázquez de Coronado (517 words)
Coronado sent out parties that ranged all the way to the Colorado River on the present border between California and Arizona, exploring the Grand Canyon and much of what is now New Mexico.
Coronado himself led a party in search of the city of Quivira and its mythic riches, into what is now Kansas, but found only a small village of what were probably Wichita Indians.
Coronado managed to resume his governorship, but within several years he was found guilty of numerous atrocities against Indians under his authority.
