They said their ancestors had told them that very tall men and women with huge bones had once dwelt among them, but because they were a very bad people with wicked customs they had fought against them and killed them, and those of them who remained had died off. And to show us how big these giants had been they brought us the leg bone of one, which was very thick and the height of an ordinary sized man, and that was a leg bone from the hip to the knee. I measured myself against it, and it was as tall as I am, though I am of a reasonable height. They brought other pieces of bone of the same kind, but they were all rotten and eaten away by the soil. We were all astonished b y the sight of these bones and felt certain there must have been giants in that land. And Cortes said that we ought to send the leg bone to Castile so that His Majesty might see it, which we did by the first agents who went there.

Dunno about any giants here but yes, Cortez made allies of several indian tribes. He needed guides and would need allies to fight against the Aztecs. Many of the coastal tribes were at war with the Aztec and were more than happy for a chance at revenge.
Since these tribes had little or no gold he found them useful as porters, spies and interpreters as well.
OP - does the article say who was being quoted here. Any links or other sources?

there are biblical accounts of giants and there are giants mentioned in nearly every religion of the world including Australian Aboriginal customs, coincidentally all are about the same time period, In the Christian bible they are called the Nephilim and are said to be wicked and to have mated with all types of beasts as well as the women but that they where predominately homosexual and where not discreet about it, also they are said to have made all types of animal abomination, making the Centaurs etc, if you want references to these i am happy to post a lot of historical references to them but it may take a bit of time, starters is Genesis Ch 6 or just read from this guy stevequayle.com... it is very interesting reading he also has an hour+ radio interview that has been posted on youtube.
