The Chibchas is not but one of the members of a numerous family of tribes who extended in both directions of the isthmus of Panama, and thus had representatives in the North America like in the one of the South. The language chibcha much more was scattered to the traverse of New Granada in the time of the discovery, than authors are saying later. It was the general language of almost all the provinces, and occupied the same position in reference to the other languages, that quechua in Peru. Certainly, more of the tribes of New Granada they were recognized like members of this town. " They were not the Chibchas much more advanced in culture that its neighbors . " In the previous chapter we made a fast painting of the customs of the tribes who surrounded to the Chibchas. More of they had still not left the wild state; some were anthropophagous, a sodomita era, another one lived on the plundering and another one was in dirty and impure end, odious vices to the Chibchas, with those who not one had affinities of no class.
The author has not read primitive chronicles, because otherwise she would have seen that in no of them the language of this town, is said that the most civilized of the New Kingdom, outside the general of almost all the provinces. He agrees to make some appointments. We read in the Eptome of the conquest that, when already the mountain ranges passed the discoverers of Opn, " paresci to have arrived where they wished and entendise soon the conquest of that one earth, although blind, by not knowing in the Earth in that they were, and also because languages whereupon being understood with the Indians there were no longer them, because the language of the Rio Grande no longer was spoken in the mountain ranges, nor in the New Kingdom is spoken the one from sierras." Oviedo, Castellanos and Herrera confirm this asseveration.
