CUIENTUR (kwee-en'-toor), Araucanian cacique of the province of Naneu, Chili, born there in 1578 ; died in 1627. He entered the Araucanian army as a private, and was gradually raised to the rank of a general after rendering great services to the Araucanians. In 1618 he succeeded Loneotegna in the command of their army, and one of his first operations was to defeat a Spanish detachment and take possession of their 400 horses. In the following year he routed the Spaniards under the mayor of Chillon (who was killed) near that City, and afterward pillaged the whole province. He then attacked the town of San Felipe de Austria, ransacked other neighboring towns, and finally took up a position in the Cangrejeras Pass, to oppose the Spanish troops. Commander Rebolledo first defeated him, but in a second battle was utterly routed by Cuientur. This Araucanian chief captured Neculguenu and killed every man of its garrison. He continued his operations till 1625, when, being tired of warfare, he resigned his command and retired to his own lands for the rest of his life. He used to call himself the eldest son of Fortune.
