My goal in this paper is to discuss both the good and the bad effects that came of the Europeans exploring and colonizing the America’s. The cultural effects that the Europeans had on Native American’s through their exploration as well as colonization were obviously great, however, it is very hard to make a generalization about this because there were many tribes in the America’s, each differently affected. In the 1570’s,
Several hundred years ago, European settlers stepped foot upon Native American land composed of indigenous societies. Instead of making a compromise, the Indians thus became colonized by the Europeans. As a result, land was stripped from the natives, new religions were imposed, and certain cultures became adopted. Furthermore, the adoption of language, diverse race and ethnic groups, and populations were developed. The Europeans sought to annex the indigenous people’s identity; however, this event led to the blending of several cultures throughout the world.
Consequently, many Native Americans began to negatively view Europeans and many would view them as inferior. Another way the Europeans impacted the Native Americans was by forcing them into slavery. The Spanish would practically enslave Native Americans through various systems, such as the encomienda, repartimiento, and mita. Usually, the Native Americans could not handle the arduous workload and many would die as a result. Conquest and forced labor caused the native population to significantly decline.
The work force that was supplied firstly with Indentured servants over the Native Americans, which later became the main instrument as to why the African slaves were used a few decades later. The first set of people who habituated the lands of North American when the Europeans arrived was the Native Indians. The Dutch and French established fur-trading colonies, whilst the Spanish and the English created settler colonies. The settlers expected to establish trade ports along the coast, trading fruits, gold and any other matter that could be sent back to Europe. However whilst settled near the natives, they realised that the Indians used
The discovery of the new world made a change in the world of the Native American as well as the Afro American. This change would eventually lead to high slave numbers. As a result the discovery of the new world by Columbus in 1492 several European countries went to the Americas and founded colonies there. However, when the Europeans came to the America’s to found the colonies in the seventeenth and eighteenth century there were already people living there. Europeans know the people that were living there now as Native American, however at the time of the colonials they knew them as Indians.
American Indians Introduction Thousands of years ago, around 1200B.C., the Indians shaped the civilization of America as hunter-gatherers making their way into America through a stretch of bridge linking America and Asia through Alaska and Siberia. The land bridge was a stretch of ecological grazing land serving as a habitat to horses, reindeer, and mammoths. While the Indian migrants pursued their prey across the stretch of land, into North America, their migration marked the birth of civilization in America. Over time, they adjusted to the foreign environment as they moved east and south of the land. Before the arrival of Christopher Columbus on American soil, most of the original inhabitants in American were Indians.
Many colonial powers change the Indian’s way of life. However, when the United States gained its own independence from Great Britain, this integration problem still not resolved. As the American government gained control almost all indigenous lands, assimilation has become forceful act for the Indians to follow for survival. Compare to the early arrival of the Europeans, integration with the Americans in the contemporary period have caused the Indians to become increasingly more frustrated and resentment over time. The relation to the colonial times for integration was friendlier in some aspects even when violence is used to solve the issue.
When the English met them they were interested in how they lived and in some cases, cultures between the English and the Natives clashed, occasionally meshing. What the English didn't have, the Natives did. Although there were many battles among the two different people, they still managed to pick up a thing or two from the Native Americans. The Native Americans did little to have no influence on the what is now American Government, but what they lacked in that domain, they offered so many other things on the cultural side of things. One of the biggest things that English built on was corn[1,4], which was originally grown by the Natives.
Music in many ways made a very good or better improved life for the immigrant's,from 1910 to 1970 About 6 million African Americans moved from the Southern United States to the Midwest, and Western states to look for a better life. They moved because the Southern part of the United States had a lack of jobs,education,discrimination, and denied rights. The main cities,states,or countries that they migrated to or moved to where New York,Chicago,Philadelphia, and Detroit guessing that one of them would give them a better future for them and their families to live at. One of the Music and dances that the African Americans did was called the Renaissance and that's what represented them as something fun and entertaining for them to do. Other impact of music was Jazz music they had a specific dance and song for
