Lower center portion of Mapa et tierra qe. yos. pedro Vial taingo tranzitau en St. Tafee
este dia 18 de octurbre de Lann. 1787. This detail, bounded by San Antonio, New
Orleans, St. Louis, and Santa Fe, displays most of the places mentioned in the
Vial-Chaves diary: Grand Piedra (Mount Scott), the Wichitan villages on the Red
River (Rio Colorado), the Tawakoni village on the Brazos River, and the
Arkansas Post, as well as the relative locales of Comanches and Yamparicas. Odd-
ly omitted is Nacogdoches, which figured prominently in the mission. Shown in-
stead is Natchitoches, to which Santa Fe officials would next dispatch Vial to
pioneer a route. The village shown on the upper Arkansas as Towiache yierro is
the place from which the Taovayas and Wichitas had emigrated to the Red River
in the 1750s, now believed to be the Deer Creek site in Kay County, Oklahoma.
Here’s what’s next.
