The Sutagaos were the settlers indigenous to the zone where today Fusagasugá is located. This community does not possess an own study in reason of the instability of the archaeological indications.
The Sutagaos inhabited the region until the new town was founded by Oídor Bernardino Albornoz between 5 and 13 February in 1562. Not much is known about the previous indigenous residents. During the visit of Oídor Ibarra, there were 759 indigenous people residing in Fusagasugá. When Oídor Aróstequi arrived in February 1760, the indigenous population had dwindled to 85, and there were 644 new settlers divided among 109 families. On February 19, 1760, a small hospital was established near the church and Father Vicente of Fresneda was given charge of it.
