As he was on his Exploration he was going down the Colorado River's he discovered the now day Grand Canyon but through 1540-1541 during the winter his crew and the Indians clashed and started a war known as the Tiguex war and the reasoning for clashing is because he and his crew raided and stole, from a little village called Tiguex.
