Alvar Nunez Cabeza De Vaca
By Lily Broder
Cabeza De Vaca was an very independent explorer. He was separated from the group when they landed in Florida. He moved to Texas and became a slave who was treated poorly. He was named governor of the spanish province of Rio. If he wasn’t so independent he probably wouldn’t have turned out to be such a great explorer. He needed to keep on exploring and no one held him back. Cabeza De Vaca was once convicted due to him misusing power so he was sent to North Africa for a little while. So not all explorer's were innocent back then.
