Pushed forward by the belief in folk saint Teresa Urrea, indigenous people and mestizos led by Cruz Chávez fought government troops to preserve their way of life. Surprisingly, author makes no mention of another such movement in Brazil occurring at the same time, which was immortalized first by Da Cunha and then by Vargas Llosa"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58." ;
