Cayancura

Cayancura or Cayeucura, a Mapuche native to the region of Marig├╝enu, chosen as toqui in 1584, to replace the captured Paine├▒amcu. His one great operation was an attempted siege of the fort at Arauco that failed, leading to his abdication of his office in favor of his son Nangoniel in 1585.
