  NAME   OF   CACIQUES :
[  nombre  de  caciques  ]
Principal provinces were under a control of a cacique, who controlled in turn many lesser caciques a
(as a rule each village seems to have had a chieftain).  The principal cacique appears to have been"rex inter pares"... Caciques were leaders and advisers and had political and social power.
Names were given in a ceremony that occurred immediately after birth.  Such names as Heavenly,
Highness, Bright One, were some given to the chiefs, whom it was customary to address by all their titles.Dice Angleria: "Cuando le nace prole a algun reyezuelo, concurren los comarcanos y entran en lahabitacion de la reina.  Este saluda a la criatura con un nombre, aquel con otro. 'Salve, lampara brillante',aquel; 'domador de enemigos' otro; quien 'nieto de un heroe esforzado', quien 'mas brillante que el oro'".  Outside their realm (domain) the caciques were also known by the name of the village or region where they ruled.
