A portrait of Esteban, the first non-indian to cross the present states of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico.
Also known as Estebanico, Estephan the moor, the black moor or Mustapha Zamuri.
Esteban was born around 1501 in the coastal city of Azemour in Morocco. After the Portuguese military retained control of the port, Esteban was captured and sold to Andreas Dorentes in 1522.
They both took part of the Navarez expedition.
His journey started in Santo Domingo and ended in Zuni pueblo in New Mexico.
