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

What Columbus does while in this new land was capture as many people that can fit in his ship to sell as slaves. Because Columbus had limited amounts of ships he could not take as many natives as he would have preferred and this could be an indication to why he wrote his letter the way he wrote it.

Gold is a symbol for wealth, and many explorers soon realized the New World’s potential for wealth. The Spanish’s interest in wealth inspired Columbus’s expedition in the first place, as he was sent to India to trade for spices.
He authored a four-book biography of Columbus and portrayed him as a brave American hero. “Columbus was a man of great and inventive genius. His ambition was lofty and noble, inspiring him with high thoughts and an anxiety to distinguish himself by great achievements.
