MANGORE (man-go'-ray), cacique of the Tim-bus, a tribe of the Guaranis, South America, born about 1480; died in 1532. Nufio de Lara, who had been left by Sebastian Cabot (q. v.) when he retired from the river La Plata in command of the fort of Espiritu Santo, did not experience at first any trouble from the chiefs of the neighboring tribes, but Mangore, having conceived a passion for Lucia Miranda, the wife of Sebastian Hurtado, one of the officers of Lara, resolved to capture the fort and make her a prisoner. He called a meeting of the principal chiefs of the tribes, and explained to them the necessity of expelling the Spaniards from the country. Notwithstanding the opposition of some of the chiefs, and especially of Siripo. a brother of the cacique, the latter convinced them, and when Lara, with the greater part of the garrison, had left in search of provisions, Mangore presented himself with a few followers, and was received hospitably and allowed to pass the night at the fort. When he knew that all were asleep, he gave a signal to his men, who suddenly attacked the Spaniards with overwhelming numbers, slaughtered the garrison and carried away the few survivors, including Lucia Miranda, as prisoners. On their retreat the Indians were met by the returning Lara, who, together with the greater part of his men, perished, and only Ruiz Garcia Mosquera (q. v.), with a few followers, escaped to Brazil. Mangore was killed in the battle, and Lucia, who had been carried off by Siripo, was afterward killed by the latter for not returning his passion.
