In the 15 to 17 century’s during the Age of Exploration, Europeans would explore unknown region of the world. Explorers had different reasons of discovering these places from wanting to go there their whole life to doing it for trade with goods or to make money. One thing all of these explorers have in common is conquering the land they find for themselves or their country. Others may argue they are just explorers and do it for the fun. Some argue they were just merchants trading slaves and goods with other countries around them and some say they are missionary’s trying to convert the native people to their religion.
When European explorers first discovered the “New World”, both the newly founded land,and the Native Americans that were effected in good and bad ways. When the Europeans first discovered the Natives, the explorers automatically assumed that they were superior or top class compared to them. Christopher Columbias states,(doc 4) “ Very handsome bodies and very fine faces. They ought to be good servants and of skill, for I see that they repeat very quickly whatever is said to them.” As you can tell from this quote, Columbias clearly thought thought of the Native American culture as a joke, and treated them as if they were animals.
The Chickasaw The Chickasaw’s reputation as strong hunters and warriors sets them apart from other tribes. The Chickasaw have their own unique religious traditions, as well as social traditions. They are very similar to the other tribes in the southeastern United States. The rich traditions and history of the Chickasaw helped to shape their everyday life both in the past and modern day.

In the 16th Century, Spain became one of the European forces to reckon with. To expand even further globally, Spanish conquistadors were sent abroad to discover lands, riches, and North America and its civilizations. When the Spanish and Native American groups met one another, they judged each other, as they were both unfamiliar with the people that stood before them. The Native American and Spanish views and opinions of one another are more similar than different because when meeting and getting to know each other, neither the Spaniards nor the Native Americans saw the other group of people as human. Both groups of people thought of one another as barbaric monsters and were confused and amazed by each other’s cultures.
There currently are about 9.2 million horses in North America. They are widespread with many breeds and disciplines that each horse fits into. Horses did not always inhabit North America as they do now. Roughly four hundred years ago the horse made it to America through Spanish soldiers, also known as conquistadores. These conquistadores successfully conquered parts of Mexico and South America before traveling north to the southwestern portion of what is now today’s
I believe that sickness and disease greatly affected the Spanish, and their quest for the New World. However it was not purely bad nor good for them, because it helped them lay siege to cities but also killed many spanish. Some of the changes of culture that were made because of it was the fact that the Spanish were now disliked because of the diseases that they had brought with them to the New World. Some of the example of the disease helping the Spanish was how when Hernan Cortes lay siege to Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital, he originally fled because of their numbers, but attacked again when there was an outbreak of smallpox and he had more siege weapons.
Many argue that the defeat of the Aztec was completely avoidable, however their defeat was inevitable. No matter how the Aztec could have reacted differently, the conquest of the Aztec empire could not have a different outcome. Too many factors played a part in the collapse of the Aztec empire, factors that could not have been bypassed. Others say this event could have been avoided if the Aztec and Spanish allied with each other, or if the Aztec surrendered. These could be valid points, except the Spanish were not looking to reason, they were out for gold and lots of it.

A Comparative View of Literature of Native Americans and European Settlers At the point when the European explorers found the New World it was at that point inhabited by millions of Native Americans. Notwithstanding not having a writing system the Native Americans had a huge oratory literary accumulation of culture, history, and religion. The literature of the early explorers was for the most part narratives and letters. These writings portray the New World and the explorers' movements and experiences (Millisaw).

Although many the conquistadors came from Spain, not all of them were Spanish. Columbus inspired many poor nobles to go to the America’s in search of fortune. One of the Spanish explores that followed in the footsteps of Columbus, was Hernan Cortes. He also played an essential role in the Spanish invasion. Before the arrival of Cortes, Montezuma II had a dream about the invaders showing up.
First of all The Spanish were discovered the Aztec empire one year before their conquest and reached it . On the other hand, some native Americans in Tabasco tried to stop Hernan Cortes but in the end they gave up .
