During eight years of traveling across the US Southwest, he became a trader and shaman to various Native American tribes before reconnecting with Spanish colonial forces in Mexico in 1536. He returned to Spain in 1537. He has been considered as a proto-anthropologist for his detailed accounts of the many tribes of American Indians that he encountered." according to his Wikipedia entry.
