Juana Hurtado is identified as a step daughter of Doña Bernardina de Salsa Orozco y Trujillo. She and her sister, María de Salazar came to live with Bernardina when Bernardina's father brought them from Zuñi Pueblo. It is believed that Juana and María were the daughters of Bernardina's husband Andrés Hurtado and a Zuñi woman. Bernardina rasied them as if they were her own daughters.

Juana married a mulatto man, Bartolomé Naranjo around the year 1677. At the start of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, Juana's husband Bartolomé was approached by a group of Zuñi Indians, including at least one of his brothers. When Bartolomé refused to join the Indians in the revolt against the Spanish, he was killed. Juana and her daughter Maria were then taken captive by the Zuñi. As Juana was half Zuñi, she was probably considered part of the Zuñi people. She remained captive for the entire twelve year exile of the Spanish citizens from New Mexico. In 1692, she was rescued by her brother Martín Hurtado, during Diego de Vargas's first expedition into New Mexico. With her, at this time, were her daughter Maria and an additional daughter and a son. These two children had been born while Juana Hurtado was a captive at Zuñi Pueblo. The name of their Indian father is not known. The Zuñi daughter was named Bernadina after Juana's step mother. This Bernadina Hurtado married José Salas about 1678. Her other daughter, María Naranjo married Alejo Gutiérrez. The name of her Zuñi son is not known.

Juana's second husband was a man named Nevares, and she had no know children with him.

Juana's third husband was Juan de Ulibarrí who had been a captian and was made a general. After being made general, Juan de Ulibarrí conducted a campaign against the Indians on the Buffalo Plains. Juana and Juan de Ulibarri adopted and raised an Apache boy, Juachin Santa Ana Ulibarri, also known as Juan de Ulibarri, II.
