In March they made their first documented livestock raid in the province on a ranch near Casas Grandes, perhaps in conjunction with neighboring semi-nomadic Suma allies, whom Spaniards later found in their camp. In the same month, a recently escaped Jumano captive reported that “Apaches of the plains” traveled to the country of the “Apaches of the Sierra of Gila” in the Pinos Altos and Mogollon Mountains to acquire the horses they used to trade for at Pecos, which suggests that upland-dwelling Chihenes possessed more horses at this time than eastern Ndé groups on the southern plains.
