The next town, Tocae, was three days away, implying tha~ they arrived there on October I.

Here he picked up the headwaters of the Swannanoa River and followed it to its junction with the French Broad River.

Moyano was in Joara for about two months-during part of January, February, and part of March-and there are indications that he engaged in prospecting, perhaps making one or more forays to mineral sites reported to him by Indians. Moyano also participated in the political rivalries among the Indians, a strategy frequently used by Spaniards in their conquest of parts of the New World. Moyano's military exploits are known mainly from an account written by the soldier Francisco Martinez. Some of Martinez's infonnation is inaccurate, and some of it appears to be exaggerated.
