About Beatrís de los Ángeles

Beatrís and her daughter Juana were denounced to the Inquisition as hechiceras, women who bewitched people with potions and enchantments.

Testimony was collected by numerous residents of New Mexico against Beatrís de los Ángeles, an acculturated Mexican Indian married to a Spanish soldier, and her mestiza daughter, Juana de la Cruz. Both were implicated in the unexplained illness of several people and the mysterious death of one man. As it turned out, Inquisition officials in Mexico City found little merit to the charges, and there were no arrests and no trial.
