The Catholic beliefs that the Spanish brought with them to the New World, along with the Aztec religions and prophecies that talked about a returning god named Quetzalcoatl, can be argued to have played the most important part in the downfall of the native empires. On one hand, it is widely believed that the Aztecs came to identify the Spaniards, and in particular Cortés, with this returning deity from their prophecies, and consequently knew that, even if they fought, they would lose the battle against him. Of whether this is completely true or not, we cannot be sure - another possibility is that, after the conquest, the remaining natives took to this explanation to make some sense of their incredible defeat. On the other hand, as Cortés explains this Aztec belief to the Charles V, he might have been twisting some aspects of the story and ideally positioning himself as the returning deity that arrived to conquer and guide a lost people, likening the conquest to the second coming of Christ described in the New Testament’s Book of Revelation.

So, I guess when they “discovered” a new world filled with people who didn 't look like them, dress like them, live like them, they must of came to the conclusion that these poor, poor savages needed to be reconditioned to be like them or be wiped from history. Which is basically what Columbus did. Why do we have a holiday named after him?

These students attended the Carlisle Indian Industrial School with the hope of suppressing their culture in order to adopt a more refined way of life. Pratt envisioned the students as ambassadors for his school, and anticipated that they would spread their newly acquired knowledge to others when they returned home.

The legitimatization of this thought process served to convert the Native Americans into the villain while it pronounced the administrators and community members as
I learned that Puritans claimed land that belonged to the natives just as other European settlers. This increasingly became a problem as the Puritans further disrupted the native lifestyle (Corbett 83).

He chose to view history from the standpoint of the Native people. As the prompt stated, the education system in the United States has only taught the story of “discovery”, the story of the “hero.” Zinn wanted to educate people how the Native thought and felt after the arrival of the Spanish.

shows how Christianity justifies war. Using the war as a way for repenters to gain forgiveness for their sins, Christianity served as a means for exploiting the masses in their fear of sin. Pope Urban II appealed to his audience as Christ’s heralds to connect the Christian faith to the holy war against Islam. Urban II fully justified war on the conditions that violence could be employed on behalf of Christ 's intentions for humanity and could even be directly authorized by him. In doing so, Urban calls for asserting Christian dominance in the holy land using violence.
