In this chapter, the integration of data from archaeology and ethnohistory extends to the end of Spanish activity in Belize in 1708. Reduction efforts by Spanish authorities, which focused on Tipu in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, are described, as are the Maya rebellions that took place between 1638 and 1641. Tipu's relations with the Peten Itza are described, as are entradas reflecting continued Spanish and Franciscan efforts to control apostasy and resistance.

Keywords:   reduction efforts, apostasy, resistance, Tipu, Lamanai, Maya, rebellion, Peten, Itza
