    I came across an interesting part of the Narváez story as part of a team of folks creating "America: History in the Making". Just thought you'd like to add this to your research.
    Esteban was the slave you wrote about and reportedly he was the linguist who was willing to talk with and learn about the various groups they encountered and keep them going. After surviving the long ordeal, he was sent back north by the Governor of Mexico City to search for gold and, legend has it, died in a Zuni village.
