Although this book focuses on indios who lived in Castile, it is just as much about indigenous peoples in Latin America. The litigation suits show how the historical production of the reconstituted past of indio slaves collapsed time and space before, during, and after the suits occurred. Indios in Castile w ere still deeply connected—metaphorically, legally, and culturally—to the plethora of ethnicities in Latin America. Although arguments were being made in a post-1542 legal context, and indios were reducing their pasts to a coherent narrative, it was nevertheless a knowable past that informed how the present (the litigation suit) would unfold.
In the dismantling of these fragile patriarchal ties we can begin to 30 — Introduction understand the circumstances that led indigenous slaves to formalize pentup grievances against their masters. In chapter 3 I follow indios as they moved from the household setting into the judicial chambers to petition for their freedom. I take the reader into the courtroom to detail the formation and implementation of a colonial bureaucracy and legal apparatus to deal with indigenous slavery in Castile. I explain the repercussions of two inspections that took place in Seville as the Crown sought to establish a legal apparatus for dismantling a well-entrenched system of indigenous slavery.
Above all, these debates reveal the expanding indioscape of the sixteenth century and just how broad conceptualizations of the term indio had become. I have structured this volume according to both a chronological and thematic arc. Following chapter 1, the book’s overture, I trace the pathways of slaves, from the ocean crossing into Castilian households and then into the locus of the Castilian courtroom. I consider slavery from their perspective, as much as is ever possible. In the judicial setting I analyze the logic and rationality of laws, the structure of lawsuits, and the weight given to documentation and terminology that influenced the making and unmaking of indio slaves.
