They eventually kept some of them as slaves and treated them the same way northern Europeans would soon treat the natives north of Mexico. However, laws were eventually placed by the Spanish crown to end the heinous act against the natives. Antonio de Montesinos, a Spanish friar, was the first to denounce the brutal ways that the Spanish were treating the Indios. Montesinos proclaimed that the Spanish who were causing havoc were “all in mortal sin and live and die in it, because of the cruelty and tyranny they practice among these innocent peoples.”
When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
Columbus misused the Native Americans with things that they had no idea about . They used their weapons to take what they required , and if the Natives declined if not simply them , there whole town would be butchered without knowing . Since the Native American were welcoming people Columbus seen that as great position besides the in light of the fact that the Native Americans didn 't perceive what their weapons even appeared just as he took as room also. The new mechanical assembly to get everything was the weapons. Columbus used that weapon to butcher a considerable measure of the
They 're savages with bows and arrows '" (The Last 00:30:24).The Colonel immediately assumes that the Samurai are powerless natives that follow a primitive lifestyle and will be easily crushed by the Imperial Army. Algren, however, is not so sure of this, but Bagley initiates the attack regardless of Algren 's input. The little respect that the Colonel shows for the Samurai demonstrates ethnocentrism because the Colonel believes the Americans are superior to the Japanese. During the 18th and 19th century imperializing nations ' only concern was profit, so they exploited and manipulated the less modernized countries.
At first, they wanted to be able to live in peace with the Native Americans because they needed their help to get food. They settlers were also outnumbered by the Native Americans, so fighting them would be pointless, for their fate would not be bright. Even though the settlers knew this, problems began to rise right away. The main conflict between the Native Americans and the European settlers was the idea they had in mind about the land.
Because of the introduction European steel, weapons and cloth many traditional craft skills were lost over a generation. The result was the loss of a culture and yet another tool for Colonial America to control Native Americans. The French and English war early on and then the American Revolution are good examples of how Native American dependency on trade goods and competition for said goods, were utilized in order to manipulate them into battles for both European powers. The fact that the Native American’s allowed themselves to be abused in such manner gives credence to the fact that they were too dependent on European customs assimilated into their lifestyles.
The Native Americans were treated very cruelly and scornfully by white settlers and the American Government. The white settlers and the Government did not show any slight altruism towards the Native Americans' and therefore took their land by force by cheating them through treaties or relinquishing them off with soldiers or after battles. The Trail of Tears was a devastating event that occurred in the 1830's and an example of a grueling era. In 1830 The Indian Removal Act was passed by the authorization of president Andrew Jackson.” Five Civilized Tribes, the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole.
After the discovery of the New World, there were three main contenders : the English, the French, and the Spanish. The Spanish remained in the south, which led the English and the French to go head to head for trade with the American Indians. This was no easy fight, as cooperation on the American Indians side was needed. The British had more soldiers, so this made the the French have a less worthy chance to win the trade with the American Indians. However, the French were more successful at trading with the American Indians, because they had smaller settlements, French men intermarried, and they were more interested in the fur trade then settling.
This movie talks about how the Aboriginal people who lived in the western Australian colony were abused and brutally controlled by the British settlers who were in charge of it at that time. The Aboriginal are considered to be the native Australian who were living there before the British came they used to live in small village and had a peaceful spiritual culture but this culture was removed and dominated by the new modern economical European culture which was a better and more affective culture than the spiritual culture that the aboriginals had and despite that the aboriginal were large in numbers they were considered to be a minority as they didn’t have the power and the technology like the Europeans had which lead them to loss control over their lands. But the Europeans didn’t only stop by taking their land they also tried to change their way of living and cultures.
The ones that cooperated would be exempt. After that Bacon’s ideas started to spread and the Rebellion had begun. According to Zinn’s point of view, Bacon was not very interested in helping the poor ones, but in killing the Native Americans. As a matter of fact, Bacon himself was not even in the lowest class; he belonged to a new class that started to arise, which was a not so privileged upper class. More towards the end of “Persons of Mean and Vile Condition”, Zinn explains why the Bacon’s Rebellion was so feared, and what new aspect it can give us on America.
These conflicts made it easy for such European foreigners as the Spanish to conquer the local communities. The second vulnerability that Native Americans suffer is that they lacked sophisticated weapons and tools (Cleary, n.d). They were unable to wage war against the European adventurers who possessed better equipment. For instance, the Spaniards were able to conquer American lands because they had access to complex equipment that allowed them to travel by sea and wage war (Cleary, n.d).
As expected, Britain put certain taxes on the colonies to help regulate trade and pay for transport of goods. However, many of the taxes Britain put on colonists were for the sole purpose of creating revenue for the British (Doc 2). The reason the British believed they were justified to do this was the belief that colonists still owed reparations for British support in the French Indian war (Doc 1). The colonists found these taxes so insulting that many of them refused to purchase British goods.
There seem to be a consistency as to why colonists settled Jamestown, Plymouth and Rhode Island. Many set out to avoided religious prosecution with the mindset, thinking the church of England was unfixable (Tindall, 2013) also there was other driving forces for settlement riches and land ownership (Tindall, 2013) Many of the settlers that set out for wealth or land seem more likely to exploit the indigenes people. Whether it be for their hunting and tracking, for the settlers seeking wealth in fur trade.
As one can see New France 's society was just as diverse and unique as any other. France made many attempts to contain and morph New France into its image but being on the frontier made changes to what was possible for people. New France started to realize that it was needed by France and was able to hold that over them to bend the laws and regulations of France . People started realizing that the French wanted and to a point needed the furs and were willing to break its morals and even its rivalries to obtain them. Traders in New France did the unheard of and traded with England and traded unwarranted items with the natives because they were more focused on their own benefit over that of Frances, showing the individualized society that was slowly forming from the depths of a state driven society.
