Cabeza de Vaca
By Emerson Gibbs and Jocya Paris
The First Surgery In Texas
Cabeza was known as a healer.Cabeza's first surgery in Texas was successful. It was on a Indian that was wounded in the leftshoulder. He used a knife and bone to do this surgery. Indian tribe members had to hold the man down. The chief watched the surgery that Cabeza was performing. After the surgery Cabeza gave the man stitches. After two days Cabeza took out the stitches.
The man survived.
It was official but we didn't see it happen.
There was proof in Cabeza's journal tho.
Here are some pictures
