THE STORY OF ESTEVANICO

The Story of Estevanico

Estevanico (pronounced es-tay-vahn-EE-co), also called Estevan, Esteban, Estebanico, Black Stephen, and Stephen the Moor (1500?-1539) was a Muslim slave from northern Africa (Azamor, Morocco) who was one of the early explorers of the Southwestern United States.

ESTEVANICO

- He was an equal partner in a group of four men that changed the map of the world. Few individuals can make such a claim.

- He was the first non-Indian to see the present state of Arizona.

- He blazed the trail that the Coronado expedition would follow later.

- He did much to allay the unrest of the Indians of Nueva Galicia simply because he was trusted and respected by them.

- He walked well over five thousand miles in exploring the southern parts of our country.

- He has been neglected too long.

Researcher and Author Marshall C. Harrold - Centerville, Ohio - 1989
