Cortès, a member of low ranking Spanish nobility was originally focused on exploiting the labour of the people of the Americas, until he decided to pursue the goal of conquest in the Americas. In this paper I will argue that European people of the early modern period had an attitude of superiority and righteousness towards the Indigenous people of the Americas due to the differences in culture between the two groups, the religious fanaticism of the time, and the subservient nature of relationships between Spanish explorers and the monarchy. When the Spaniards arrived in the Americas they were met when societies of people with different customs and culture than their own. This simple fact blossomed into the belief that European traditions and values were in some way superior to those of the people already

Colonialism in Latin America was always there, but over time the type of colonial mindset changed. There were many forms of what coloniality left, ranging from La otra conquista, where the Spanish main goal to convert the Aztecs to Christianity, The Mission in which the Guarani were depicted as giving into the faith without a fight, Camila which is a dictator/patriarchal society and lastly, Embrace of the Serpent, where Westerners, specifically the United States, tried pushing their own agenda in Latin America. In conclusion, the legacy that colonialism had left in Latin America continued to thrive and prosper far after the very first
Mexican society tends to be religious, that is why the elements of Catholicism can be observed in many areas of Mexican’s life. This essay will investigate the Christian motives in Mexican literature, namely, the novel by Juan Rulfo “Pedro Paramo”. In this paper I will argue that the novel “Pedro Paramo” shows a typical view of Mexican Catholicism by focusing on Mexican beliefs of purgatory and ghosts, its role and image in the novel. Investigating its influence on plot and characters and making a comparison with The Bible and Catholic Doctrine of Purgatory’s description of these terms are crucial parts of the essay. Latin American society is strictly Catholic due to historical reasons of being colonies of Catholic Spain and Portugal, therefore the influence of Catholic Church is very sensible, especially in literature.

The feature of this book is that it can be regarded as a political program. Based on a careful analysis and study of the features of Aztlán from the late 19th century to modern times, Navarro attempts to offer a number of practical recommendations for the solution of the problem of self-identification of the Mexicanо and Latino minorities in Aztlán. In this regard, the change model proposed by him are worthy of special attention. An additional argument in favor of such an approach is justified by the fact that indeed the recent American political, social and economic spheres have a number of serious difficulties. In this regard, the value of this book lies in the fact that it offers practical ways to solve the problem of self-identification of Latinos living in the United States.

This comprehensiveness hit every point about being a Mexican Immigrant in Los Angeles and I believe that the author did not leave out any key points. Overall, the book was mostly short informational facts/short paragraphs about Mexican Immigrants in Los Angeles. Thus, making the book worthwhile to read because it changes settings
They believed that religion gave them the right to conquer new land, because they “came to serve God and to get rich, as all men wish to do,” which Bernal Diaz del Castillo said while working with Hernán Cortés in the conquest of Mexico. Mendicant friars, Jesuits, and priests traveled across the New World to preach Catholicism in hopes of converting the non-Catholics. Religious values were one of the main motivations for conquistadors, because they felt more powerful and superior. The progress of Spanish colonization was shaped by several factors involving war, disease, and religion. The main motivation for colonization during this time period were the “Three G’s” - gold, gaining riches and wealth; glory, success during war; and gospel, spreading religion.
