Farther north, at least, Timucua territory reached to the Gulf at the mouth of the Suwannee (Worth 1992a:5960). :1). But the Tocobaga of north Tampa Bay, whose village is the type-site for the Safety Harbor culture that dominates the bay area, spoke a language distinct from Timucua (D. de Leturiondo 1978:11718; Méndez de Canzo 1601). And the bay's Uçita and Mocoso, where Ortiz acquired his native languages, spoke distinct tongues (Elvas 1933:1:61). A similar uncertainty prevails about the Timucua's southern limits farther east, between the Oklawaha and St.

However, a knowledgeable Spaniard identified them as speaking Mayaca (Ayala y Escobar 1717; Hann 1993a:111, 11516). For another group, the Ayapaja, the evidence is somewhat contradictory. They have an obviously Timucua-sounding name, but they were linked with both the Jororo and the Acuera. When the Ayapaja first appeared during Governor Diego de Quiroga y Losada's term (168793), they were united with a band of heathen Acuera and the two groups apparently acknowledged the same chief.

The hinterland in this zone was more heavily settled than it was farther north behind the Guale coast on the trail to Tama and Ocute in the Georgia piedmont. The travelers on the 1597 expedition to Tama and Ocute reported that "they returned by another different road than they had gone by [when setting out from Guale], very much better and more populated, because there was no stretch of greater than two days without a settlement, and on the other there was a stretch of seven days [out of eight], and the horse that the said friars brought with them came more contentedly to Yufera and Cascangue" (Méndez de Canzo 1600b).
