MAYOBANEX (mah-yo-ban-ex'), cacique of the Ciguaneyes of Hayti; died in 1498. In 1493 a party of Columbus's men tried to make a landing in the dominions of Mayobanex, but were attacked by the Indians. The natives were put to flight and several were wounded. " This was," says Washington Irving, "the first contest and the first time that native blood was shed by the white men in this New World." In 1498 Mayobanex received with open arms the fugitive cacique Guarionex (q. v.), and engaged to stand by him, to defend his cause and share his desperate fortunes. He began a warfare against the Spaniards, destroying the villages of the natives that had remained loyal to the invaders of their country. Bartholomew Columbus, the adelantado, demanded the surrender of Gua-rionex, but Mayobanex refused to deliver his guest. His village and several others were set on fire by the Spanish soldiery. At their approach his subjects fled, and, finding himself deserted, Mayobanex took refuge with his family in the mountains, where at last he was surprised, taken in chains to Fort Concepcion, and executed.
