YANGUAS, Manuel (yahn'-gooahs), Spanish missionary, born in Guadalajara in 1620; died in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1689. He entered the order of St. Francis in Madrid, became professor of literature in the principal convent of his order in that city, and was afterward sent to the missions in Porto Rico. Thence he was ordered by the bishop to found missions in Cumana, where he labored for' many years among the Piritu and Cumanagoto Indians, and finally became superior of the convent in Caracas. He wrote "Arte de la Lengua de Cumana" (Burgos, 1683), and a catechism and sundry religious poems in Cumana dialect. The manuscripts of these latter works were preserved in the convent of St. Francis in Caracas, but lost after the revolution of independence.
