The Tarascan state was a state in pre-Columbian Mexico, roughly covering the geographic area of the present-day Mexican state of MichoacÃ¡n, parts of Jalisco, and Guanajuato. At the time of the Spanish conquest, it was the second-largest state in Mesoamerica. The Tarascan state was constituted of a network of tributary systems and gradually became increasingly centralized, under the control of the ruler of the state called the cazonci. The Tarascan capital was located at Tzintzuntzan on the banks of Lake PÃ¡tzcuaro, and, according to PurÃ©pecha oral tradition was founded by the first cazonci TariÃ¡curi and dominated by his lineage, the "UacÃºsecha" ("Eagles" in PurÃ©pecha language). In PurÃ©pecha, language of the PurÃ©pecha people, the name of the state was PurÃ©checua TzintzuntzÃ¡ni, the "Lands of Tzintzuntzan" referring to the capital Tzintzuntzan.
