A similar process was taking place to the west, where the Jesuit Hernando de Santarén, coming from Culiacán in Sinaloa, entered the sierra of Topia in 1598. 43 From the reales de minas, Spanish encomenderos mustered enough force to compel Acaxee rancherías to work in the new mines. Acaxee resistance to the new colonists may have been diverted or diluted by the depredations of Tepehuan raids from the east and Xixime threats from the south. Santarén was welcomed by the encomenderos, who recognized that the Jesuits could help consolidate dispersed rancherías ravaged by the recent epidemics of smallpox and measles and resettle the survivors near the mines.
