In the first place, Cabeza knew about the Indian tribes near his location, he knew about their culture and language. Over time he was able to learn more about the Indians, and showed great respect towards them. Cabezas respect to the Indians earned him their trust they also became allies because of it. “Cabeza learned four Indian languages, including Charrucos, plus sign language” (Document B).
Cabeza de Vaca survived because of his success as a healer, his wilderness skills, and his respect for the Indians. As a soldier, Cabeza knew the main skills of survival. As a healer, he became a friend of the Indians. In my opinion, survival in the wilderness for two years is quite the accomplishment. Real world people might use the wilderness skills used by Cabeza to survive when lost.
Moreover, in 1537, another Spanish explorer known as Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, wrote a book titled La Relación, where he explained the obstacles him and his crew had to face during the Narvaez expedition in 1527 to the Spanish King, Charles I. In connection to all the men who sailed “from Cuba to Tampa Bay in present-day Florida” only “Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca and three other men survived the expedition, but only after enduring a nine-year, six-hundred-mile trek across Texas and Mexico and enslavement by Indians…….” In my opinion, this letter gives the reader a much clearer understanding of the things that Cabeza de Vaca saw during his journey because he writes his letters using words like “my”, “I”, and “me” which makes it clear to us
He guided the others in the Secret Annex with his great leadership skills. Also he is a good survivor because he in the army. In the army, he went to World War One (annefrank.org). He survived the first World War, he must have good survival skills to survive a war.
Well, once one reads the excerpt, they can be given a great feeling of being a problem solver, or for short definition, skillful. To be skillful is very similar to being resilient, but it comes more into fact of being related to past experiences and knowing of
: Document A is Christopher Columbus Poem. It was written by Jean Marzollo in 1948. The purpose of this poem is to inform people on how Christopher discovered America. The source explains says that he left from Spain and that Christopher Columbus was brave and bright .I know that during that time of period was around when Columbus set sail with three ships since he left from Spain also when people were exploring.
Don Juan de Onate, wrote the letter after the expedition took place, the subject of the document included the travels to the new colony and the hardships that were endured. He described the culture, religion and living conditions of the indigenous people. Although gold was not found, other riches were to be had, such as furs, mines, foods to harvest and wildlife. Don Juan de Onate also told of his commitment to Spain and the
If Nando did not trust in God, no one would have gotten out of the Andes. Through this whole process in the Andes people got to have a relationship or have a better relationship. God has a reason for everything. In the book, Miracle in the Andes, Nando Parrado is a hero because he saves others lives, he survives 72 day in the Andes, and he has faith in God.
Still, others disagree they say life should be a priority over culture. However, culture made surviving living, it gave them a break from the maltreatment. Like the Jewish people in the Holocaust had similar ideas as the Native Americans during the Indian Removal. Native Americans upheld old, sacred traditions, even on the trail of tears. They both understood the importance of keeping their culture alive, and persevered despite the traumatic events they were forced to endure.
The characters in Contagion and The American Plague share similar attributes; they put other peoples lives before their own. Bravely, Dr. Lazear from The American Plague and Dr. Nextel from Contagion both self experimented on themselves in hopes of finding a solution. Dr. Mears and Sister Constance both showed great compassion throughout the film and the book. Using great strength, they both persevered and were a great help to society. While on her death bed, Dr. Mears gave her blanket to a sick man.
“Cabeza learned four Indian language, including Charrucos, plus sign language” (Document B). Cabeza respected the Native Americans enough to learn their languages so he could communicate better. “The Indians were … not at all convinced…. Some talked … among themselves, saying that the Christians were lying and that we did not covet anything but rather, everything (the Indians) gave us we later returned… (Document D). Cabeza and his fellow survivors respected the Native Americans enough that they always returned the favor one way or another.
First of all, the military veteran persisted the harsh environment through his vast knowledge of survival skills. For example, “Cabeza drank water stored out in hollowed-out horse-leg containers” (Document B). The sailor made an improvisation of a naturally unavailable. In this case, Cabeza used the remnants of a horse as a cup for drinking purposes, most likely because his prior knowledge told him that horse-legs are sturdy and hollow. By making use of his environment along with his mastery in the arts of survival, Cabeza de Vaca could now create materials that would increase his chances of living.
Hernando De Alarcon Hernando De Alcorcon was a spanish navigator of the 16th century. He was born in Trujillo Extremadura.

They became first non-Indians to sight Alta California on September 5, 1540. His family hoped he would become a lawyer, but he told his father he would rather explore the West Indies.
Most Native American tribes were fairly good at healing medicines, but in certain cases they would bring travelers gifts to heal their very sick. In De Vasa’s time they traded a bow to have the men and priest heal a handful of men, they mostly prayed and gave them
British wanted to recruit African American to ship them back to their country. After the sea his trade they had nothing left. All of the African Americans died while on the ships 2. What do you suppose, was the “sea horse” that Hortop describes?
