CABELLOS COLORADOS. Cabellos Colorados (Red Hair), a Lipan Apache chief, figured prominently in a raid on San Antonio just after the establishment of the villa by the Canary Islanders in 1731. In 1743 his band seized two citizens in a raid. He stole horses from San Francisco de la Espada Mission and killed Indians from the missions of San Juan Capistrano and Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña..After numerous raids in 1736 and 1737, he was captured on December 11, 1737, and imprisoned at Bexar until October 1738, when Apache depredations were renewed, and he was sent as a prisoner to Mexico City.
