For colonialist methods of Cortez is quite characteristic that the first order of the caciques he ordered to bring people back to the city as a sign of peace. This gesture and to provide an atmosphere of normal life have played an important role in his plans. He also ordered the Indians to give up their idols. And there was no less politics than the desire to convert to their faith, as the destruction of symbols inherited from the fathers of faith hem very roots of Indian confidence. Cortes showed the Indians the image of the Virgin and the Child, and they are absolute obedience was asked to give it to them so they can keep it. As always, he was able to orchestrate such a way that scene that the request came from the Indians themselves, and that's when he built the altar, and set a large cross. Studying the Indians, and he knew the reason for their hostility - pushed their battle cacique Champoton. Cortes ordered that the man was brought to him. Their response was amazing: the cacique has been sacrificed for what gave such bad advice! The next day the city was renamed Santa Maria de la Victoria, the cross is set, and the chaplain of the expedition Frey  Bartholomew de Olmedo celebrated Mass in the presence of all the important people of the city, and then baptized them.
