In 1528 Before Cabeza de Vaca and his crew got attacked. They were on their way to Apalachee. The Indian group (The Alcaraz) found Cabeza and his crew and told them to leave cause they were not welcomed there in Spain. The Alcaraz said they would help if they would just leave. As Alcaraz went with Cabeza and his crew,he had a plan for them to attack that night When they were asleep or not really paying attention that much so Alcaraz could betray them. The way Alcaraz was going to attack was by them getting Cabeza and his crews attention. Then surround them with fire and shoot them with bows and arrows.
