Jusepe Gutiérrez (Jusephe, José, Joseph), a native of Culhuacan, a short distance north of Mexico City, was a Mexican Indian servant of Antonio Gutiérrez de Humaña, a lieutenant in the illegal expedition of Francisco Leyva de Bonilla. Following the murder of Bonilla by Humaña, Jusepe, along with five other Mexican Indians deserted the expedition somewhere on the high plains. Jusepe was captured by a wandering band of Apache Indians and held prisoner for a year. On hearing of the Spaniards in New Mexico he escaped to the Pecos pueblos, where he was found by Juan de Oñate at Picuries on February 16, 1599. He guided Oñate to Quivira in 1601. Jusepe was the only known survivor of the Bonilla expedition.
