The little-studied witchcraft trial that took place at Abiquiu, New Mexico, between 1756 and 1766 is the centerpiece of this book. The witchcraft outbreak took place less than a century after the Pueblo Revolt and symbolized a resistance by the Genzaros (hispanicized Indians) of Abiquiu to forced Christianization. The Abiquiu Genzaro land grant where the witchcraft outbreak occurred was the crown jewel of Governor Vlez Cachupns plan to achieve peace for the early New Mexican colonists. They were caught between the Pueblo Indians' resistance to Christianization and raids by the nomadic indio barbaros that threatened the existence of the colony. Thanks mainly to the governor's strategy, peace was achieved with the Comanches and Utes, the Pueblo Indians retained their religious ceremonies, and the Abiqui Pueblo land grant survived and flourished. "The Witches of Abiquiu" is the story of a polarizing event in New Mexico history equal in importance to the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692.

Malcolm Ebright is a historian, an attorney, and the director of the Center for Land Grant Studies. His most recent book, written in collaboration with Rick Hendricks and Richard W. Hughes, is Four Square Leagues: Pueblo Indian Land in New Mexico (UNM Press).

Rick Hendricks is the New Mexico State Historian.
