CHI-AH-KIN, or AH-KIN-CHI (chee-ah-keen'), Yucatec prince, died about 1541. He was general-in-chief of the army of Tutul Xin, king of Mani, and won a good military reputation during the war against the Spaniards, whom he defeated in several battles. When Tutul Xin submitted to the Spanish conquerors, he sent envoys to all the caciques in Yucatan, to invite them to make peace also; and for this purpose Chi-Ah-Kin and other noblemen were directed to visit King Cocdm at Zotuta, and this chief received them with apparent regard, entertaining them with a splendid hunting-party and banquet, at the end of which all the envoys were beheaded by order and in presence of Coc6m. Chi-Ah-Kin was the only one spared, in order to make him suffer what they considered the most ignominious punishment,, that of cutting his eves out and scalping him. In this condition he was taken to the Mani frontier and left there until some Indians took him before his king. He died a few months afterward. In 1599 the king of Spain gave a pension of $200 to Oaspar Chin, son of Chi-Ah-Kin and grandson of Tutul Xin.
