Horses were introduced to the New World by Spanish Conquistadors. Indians quickly adopted the animal as a means of transportation and to hunt more efficiently. This was transformative to Indian culture and made hunting much easier. In fact, many Indians abandoned farming to start hunting Buffalo. Prior to this, North America
Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred ninety-two. When one hears the name Christopher Columbus, they tend to think about his discovery of America. What they don’t consider is how his discovery changed and affected America. First of all, Columbus’ discovery provided the start of a long term colonization, which created what we know today as America. People, who immigrated from another country, traveled all over the world to make it to America in hopes of getting land in “The New World”.
The Effects of European Colonization and Exploration on the American Indians The first evidence showing that American Indians inhabited the North American continent indicated that they migrated from Siberia, most likely crossing the Bering Land Bridge, over eleven thousand years ago. From there, the American Indians became a nomadic people and roamed the continent until they found a region that suited their needs for food, water, and shelter. The American Indians living on the east coast and on river inlets were the first to encounter the Europeans, who some American Indians, especially the Aztecs, believed to be gods because of their shiny, silver armor, ship sails that looked like clouds, and their loud, unrecognizable weapons. This belief
The Columbian Exchange had major effects on both European societies and also the native societies, eventually changing both of their lives drastically forever. As The Europeans came and settled in America throughout the late 1400s and early 1500s they concorded America as their own, this would drastically change the European societies forever. As a result of the new settlements Native Americans would be pushed and moved out of their homeland as well. The new European settlements grew larger and larger over the mid 1500s. The first two countries to bring settlements to America were Spain and Portugal and soon to follow were France and England.
This was accomplished through the Columbian Exchange, which is the network of migration and trade within the Atlantic Ocean. Next, European empires in the Americas as well as Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires are different in their development because Europe had a greater impact on the native peoples that they integrated into their growing empires. When the Europeans arrived in the Americas, they brought a very tiny weapon with them. They brought disease. Small pox, measles, and malaria and just a few of the old world diseases that devastated native populations.
Kacie Lee 3/8/18 Tomasetti AP World P.6 Practice Essay #4 In the Latin America and Caribbean region, interaction with indigenous people was common. In the period between 1750 and 1900 in Latin America and Caribbean region, although there were continuities in labor systems such as the continued existence of indentured servantry, the hacienda system, and class rank, there were more changes such as the end of slavery and an increase of indentured servants. In this period, the era of conquest was very prevalent. In Latin America, indigenous empires like the Incan and Aztec Empires collapsed as Europeans conquered the region and began to colonize. Conquistadores who looked for God, gold, and glory, began to travel to the New World.
Impact of the Columbian Exchange DBQ With the discovery of the New World in 1492, a new chapter of world history began, one that was shaped and forever changed by the Columbian Exchange, a mass bacterial, economic, and plant interchange between the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia that greatly impacted the New World. The Columbian exchange proved instrumental in the devastating bacterial transfer that decimated the native New World peoples in the 15th and 16th centuries. Although some deaths were admittedly caused by the deliberate torture and destruction inflicted upon the Natives by the Europeans, Dinesh D'Souza stressed the significant impact that disease had on the Old World’s death toll. The Europeans unknowingly infected millions with the deadly measles and smallpox pathogens. The consequential catastrophic genocide was a result of the natives’ complete lack of immunity to foreign bacteria.

Instead of the image of Europeans transforming America in their image, the film describes a new global environment born from the interaction of the New World and the Old World after the Columbian Exchange. Highlighted in both films is the horse and its establishment with image of the Native American. The horses that escaped ran wild and flourished in the wide plains of North America. This was a blessing for the nomadic tribes in the Central Plains who then domesticated these wild horses which helped them in their bison hunts (Kersken & Trebbi, 2009). This shows an emergence of a new culture from the mixing of the New World and the

What would eventually become the start point of what is today called the Columbian Exchange started about 500 years ago when Christopher Columbus and his 3 ships set off to from Spain to find India. Instead of India, they discovered the New World, America. The exchange of animals and plants that took place after this would come to be very important to Europe and America. After Columbus and his 3 ships arrived and reported back to queen Isabel another 17 ships were sent off to the New World, the word about the far away land spread along Europe and everybody wanted to take a part of this amazing land. After the British defeated the Spaniards the Settlers arrived to America and now is when the real exchange of plants and animals would take place.
Columbian Exchange The most important historical impact of the Columbian Exchange is human because they are the first to form settlement on the native land. According to Mr. Johnson 's history slide shows Columbus sailing from Spain wanting to trade with India, however traveled to another route instead. Once he arrived to the new land he greeted with the indian tribe and convince them to trade with him. In the first Columbus video shows Columbus was a nice person who tries to negotiate with the indians, however the indian rebelled and caused destruction. The European in Columbus group dominated over the indians and used them for slavery.
It could be argued that trade ships were a large contributing factor to the early spread of the Black Death. Once the port cities were infected the plague followed land based trade routes from these port cities into the interior cities. The Black Death marched through Europe, devastating the population. It spread throughout all of Europe and England, finally reaching Russia in 1353. The Black Death took 7 years to spread throughout Europe and Russia.
It is believed that the Indians modified the environment because of abundance of game (Bison and carrier pigeons) in America after their disappearance. It is believed that the Indians were keystone species who controlled the number of game based on their hunting habits. (Pg. 53) When the later settlers came into America they noticed that there were multitudes of bison and pigeons to hunt. While early settlers claimed that these multitudes did not exist while the Indian population was thriving in the New World.
