Quiché is a department located in the northwestern region of the Republic of Guatemala. Shortly after the conquest of Guatemala, the region of the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes was part of the Tezulutlán region where numerous indigenous people barricaded themselves to resist the Spanish conquest. When Spaniards and indigenous Tlaxcalans and Cholulans invaded Guatemala in the 1520s, the Sacapaulas region and other Ixil and Uspantek indigenous villages resisted the conquest for several years thanks to their location in the Cuchumatanes mountains and the ferocity of their warriors. After several years of defeating the Spanish conquest attempts, they were finally defeated in December 1530, and the surviving warriors were marked as slaves in punishment for their prolonged resistance.
