On any kind of journey there are many challenges that keep people from reaching their journey. Challenges can come in many different ways, in my life personally; challenges came in the form of my attitude toward something, having to break out of the way that I normally think and try to think like others. There have been physical challenges and mental or spiritual ones as well. Trying to compare my journey with Elizabeth and Darcy’s I would say me and Darcy had to work through looking at things a certain way. Darcy changed the way he thought about lower class people with the push from Elizabeth, and I had to change the way that I thought about the Bible and society, because of the call that God placed on my life to be a missionary in another country.
When the Europeans began colonizing the New World, they had a problematic relationship with the Native Americans. The Europeans sought to control a land that the Natives inhabited all their lives. They came and decided to take whatever they wanted regardless of how it affected the Native Americans. They legislated several laws, such as the Indian Removal Act, to establish their authority. The Indian Removal Act had a negative impact on the Native Americans because they were driven away from their ancestral homes, forced to adopt a different lifestyle, and their journey westwards caused the deaths of many Native Americans.

Columbus’ obsession with bettering himself destroyed multiple cultures and destroyed the basic human rights that people are granted every day. He is not an icon and does not deserve the sympathy given to him because ‘he was raised that way.’ The genocide he caused to the Arawak population is a perfect example of how he destroyed an entire culture. Because the Arawaks were facing mass extermination, they organized and attempted to fight back against Columbus and his men. Then again, they were no match for their horses and armoury. The Spaniards hung or burned the natives that they took captive.
1. Identify and explain two examples of external factors that led to the downfall of a civilization The Inca Empire is an example of how external forces led to the downfall of a civilization. The Inca Empire was pushed to its fall by external forces such as diseases brought by outsiders and the Spanish conquistadors. A website called Discover Peru informed me that diseases such as smallpox, measles, chickenpox, and influenza killed between 50% to 90% of the Inca population (The Fall of the Inca Empire). These diseases were brought by outsiders which makes them external factors that led to the downfall of the civilization since diseases weakened the empire letting the Spanish get into the empire easily.
It should be to remember the trials and tribulations the Taino’s went through. It should represent a day in which the Natives are celebrated for who they were as a people before Columbus employed his ways upon the people. Imagine living in your peaceful community and one neighbor moves in next door and causes terror. Terror which leads to the wipe out of your kind. That’s exactly what Christopher Columbus did, he spread terror amongst the indigenous.
For instance by studying the Ancient Inca religion we know their land was very important and significant to them and how that caused many wars. We learn the mistakes we made and how to prevent them. From studying Ancient and Indigenous religions we can compare that to our world today as we now know that war is an unreasonable solution to a disagreement. We also learn how to practice faith and worship, and how to follow the values we live by. As we know from studying Ancient and Indigenous religions, people live according to their religion.
The Incas started to conquer empires neighboring them and they started to expand. The Incas were special when they conquer an empire. They let the old ruler of the empire be the ruler but the people needed to learn the Inca language, Quechua and follow the laws of Inca. From the land they earned from wars, they used it for agriculture. They also used it to experiment with new crops and for new methods of cultivation.
Many times in battles in real life soilders offen retreat because they aare outnumbed. When Ralph is hidding in the busses Jack's tribe lights where Ralph is so that they can get him out and kill him. What Jack's tribe didn't relise is that the fire would burn all the fruit so they probaly couldn't eat. This is a microcosem of the cold war between the United States and the Sovet Union. Both sides could destoy eachother and if they did so their would be drastic clamet changes that would leed to a lack of reasouses.
Aboriginal people inhabited the whole of Australia and Torres Strait Islanders lived on the islands between Australia and Papua New Guinea, in what is now called the Torres Strait. There were over 500 different clan groups or 'nations ' around the continent, many with distinctive cultures, beliefs and languages. Today, Indigenous people make up 2.4 per cent of the total Australian population (about 460,000 out of 22 million people). The first colony New South Wales was settled as a penal colony – a place where Britain could send convicted criminals because her prisons were overcrowded. Many convicts had grown up in poverty and committed only minor offences, such as the theft of a loaf of bread.
