Cajero in Nochistlan

Iglesia de Nochistlan
The word CAJERO now means ‘cashier’, but in the 1700s it probably meant ‘box maker’.

The town of Nochistlan was founded by 1531 in an area inhabited by the indigenous people named Caxcan. The ‘x’ in Caxcan is probably pronounced like the ‘x’ in Mexico in Spanish – as a soft ‘j’. ‘Cajero’ sounds like ‘Caxcan’????


By the 1540s the Chichimeca and the Zacateco indegenous groups were fighting against the Spaniards and their indegenous allies (e.g., the Caxcan). The indegenous people wanted the invading Spaniards out of their sacred grounds. The Spaniards wanted the silver ore from the area. The Spaniards struggled longer and harder with the Chichimecas than they ever did with the Aztecs. Hostilities lasted until the early 1600s.

In 1864, during the French Intervention Nochistlan was also involved in battles.

The following events all happened in Nochistlan, Zacatecas unless stated otherwise.
