Yali’s question is about the origins of inequality between societies in the world. He wants to know why people of European descent are rich and powerful while non-white people tend to lack wealth and power. Yali wonders if there is something wrong with non-white people like him, as they are not as technologically or economically advanced as white people.
Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala’s in his work “Tocay Capac” explains in details the story of the first Inca. With some short stories, the readers learn all about various aspects of the Inca culture, the colonial times and the Spanish conquest. As the quote above shows, Poma de Ayala wrote about different people, where one of them was Tocay Capac. He was the first Inca King, who came from Adam and Eve, “…came from the aforementioned legitimate descendants of Adam and Eve and the progeny of Noah…”(pg.32). Tocay, Ynga and Pinau were the first authentic human beings that represented Incas.
The two empires shared similarities in their military tactics and expansion. Both of them were allied with other tribes and then combined to form the military that was used to protect against internal rebellion and external attacks. They both lasted till the Spanish started attacking them in 1521 for the Aztec and 1532 for Incan. The Aztec who were described as fierce warriors, gained strength in the 1420s. The Incans, who were
the 16th century two massive empires ruled over Latin America. The Inca and the Aztec once ruled the area where both empires have many advantages on physical features which lead to the development of the empires. For the better advantage the Inca Empire would excel at the development of their empire better than the Aztec Empire.
The Aztec and Incan empires were destroyed in similar ways. While their empires were ruled differently and focused on different things their downfall was caused by even the same group of people. Their destruction wasn't peaceful and somewhat gory. Important factors of the fall of the Aztec and Incan empires were European expeditions, disease, and warfare.
While many worldviews exist, The fall of the Aztec empire was unavoidable.The Aztec’s were a group of people who were very religious and lived in Mexico for hundreds of years but one day a group of Spanish people arrived and executed all of the Aztec people. Many of them died from diseases the spanish brought with them like small pox. The others were killed by the spanish and some were taken to spain as slaves. This was led by an explorer named Hernan Cortes.
The Inca empire was able to conquer the known world in their time. The reason why was when they would conquer someone or someplace they let the people keep their way of life before they came, and only asked for a tribute or tax and teach the language of the empire.
Francisco Pizarro who conquered the Inca was a violence supporter, and his aim was the wealth and power, as a result of that he was killed in a violence way by his people. That prove that every human being behind his favor.
During the European Imperialism in the Americas, the Caribbean, Aztec and incas, and North America hand an influence on guns, germs, and steel which was the result of the imperialism. Guns, germs, and steel permitted Europeans to vast tracks of the globe. This started urban communities require an abundant supply of sustenance, consequently rely on upon farming. As ranchers take the necessary steps of giving sustenance, division of work permits others flexibility to seek after different capacities, for example, mining and proficiency.
Guns, Germs, and Steel were the main cause of the fall of the Inca Empire. The fall was caused because of Francisco Pizarro whose army was small but way more high tech then the Incas. The Incas thought they could never be defeated but Pizarro lead to their defeat because of guns, germs, and steel.
The Inca empire. The Aztec Empire. Empire. A very large group of people ruled over by one person. The Aztec and Inca empire were both different empires but they did have things common. Today I will be sharing and comparing the similarities and differences between the Aztec empire and the Inca empire. Although the tribes came from different locations and don’t have much in common, they do have different things that make them alike, such as the fact that they both have important events that occur around the same time and that they both eat some of the same foods. These two empires are very different as well, but most tribes and empires are.
The British Empire began expanding over into North America in the late 1500’s. The first few attempts to creating a stable and lasting colony was a struggle for England and the new colonists until 1607 when the British granted the Virginia Company of London permission to send colonists over to North America (Boyer et al. 47). The first colony proved to be successful, and the British Empire believed that forming more colonies would bring in more profit for the home country. Soon after 1607, the New England, Middle and Southern colonies would make up England’s proprietorship on the east coast of North America. As these colonies were prospering, and developing, all three had their
The fall of the Aztec Empire was due to the determination of the Spaniards. The Spaniards were destructive. They did not respect the Natives’ religions at all. They almost destroyed all of the Natives’ culture, and now we know very little about Natives. The Spaniards’ greed and obsession with power, this was their main motivation to conquer the Aztec Empire. The Aztecs’ religion is what got them into the most trouble. They sacrificed humans for their Gods, which was wrong in the Spaniards’ eyes (and mine too). They also were very superstitious .The Aztecs may have won the battle against the Spaniards if they too had advanced weaponry and battle tactics. The Aztecs and the Spaniards were vastly different people, however they had similarities. They both killed in the name of religion, and both growing empires willing to do anything to gain more power.
