How to go on a Successful Expedition Cabeza de Vaca, one of the world's greatest explorers. It's amazing how he was able to survive with little tools and help. Cabeza started his expedition in 1525 in seville, he later crashed in Galveston Island, Texas. He and 3 other people had to be able to survive in the new world, with nothing other than themselves and other little resources. Cabeza de Vaca was able to survive seeing that he knew a bit about the Indian tribes and how to speak their language(s), He also knew how to heal wounds and other such things, and most of all he knew how to survive in the wilderness.
Two of these friars named Ramon Pané and Bartolome de las Casas documented their experiences, in the world and with the natives. A Dutch painter by the name of Theodore de Bry who never visited the new world drew four pictures depicting the Spaniard's experiences in the new world. Through the eyes of Pane, Las Casas, and De Bry we are able to get a glimpse of the new world. Pane seemed to think he was above the natives.
This would be the best decision Spain could ever make! Vasco De Gama went around the tip of Africa and had mapped a route to Asia. That is the last example I have of a Historical Pattern or Sequence of events. To summarize it up I think Historical Pattern or Sequence of events is basically saying that history will eventually repeat
The reading that most interested me was Cabeza de Vaca’s The Relation. In this writing, Cabeza de Vaca sets out on an exploration to the New World and is shipwrecked and stranded with the Capoque and Han Native Americans and then the Avavares and Arbadaos Native Americans. Although he is stranded, he feels sympathetic towards the Native Americans and shows his anger towards the other violent explorers. The three most important lines in the writing begin with one on page 32.
There was said to be more islands to the northwest of where the soon to be Spanish explorer lived, by Ferdinandm, who happened to had high interest in the islands dubbed ‘’ the Islands of Benimy". He sailed off with just three ships and at the very least two-hundred men. After completing an contract, he sailed the waters for a long time when in April 2, 1513, they
Abdul was the total opposite from me, he had to fight for everything to survive and stay alive even though he has no family left. I have a good family, even if they split apart some time ago we are all still connected. Abdul thinks about his family a lot; his whole family died. His father and brother were bombed, and his mother was shot right in front of
The group had one common goal, to establish a settlement across the Gulf of Mexico, as well as spreading the word of God, prosper in wealth, and also receive fame and glory. They traveled westward and eventually landed near present day Tampa Bay, Florida, in the spring of 1528.
Estebanico also known as "little Stephen" was the first non-Native American to explore the American Southeast. Even though, the records show that he was servant, evidence shows Estebanico did more than serve. He helped assist Spanish explorers in search of the "fabled Seven Cities of Cibola". During the expenditure members became sick, but he continue the journey on his own. Additionally, Estebanico open up what is now New Mexico and Arizona.
The Conquest of Florida Florida, the land of sunshine and palm trees and some people’s favorite place to vacation. However, Florida has not always been as accessible as it is now. In 1818, Spain still retained their foothold in America just south of the states, albeit by a “slender thread” (1, 202). With the Spanish empire in a state of disarray, America sought to enlarge her domain and opened contract negotiations to purchase Florida. Despite these negotiations, Andrew Jackson marched into Florida and began to conquer both the Spaniards and the Seminoles, the native tribe of Native Americans.
This compromise between the United States and Spain in the Adams-Onis Treaty was a significant compromise during the colonization of America because many conflicts between Spain and the U.S. were resolved, it led to further expansion of the U.S, and today, Florida has a huge effect on the United States. Florida did not just walk into the hands of the US though, other countries had already made their way to Florida to claim it as their own. This caused there to be many fights about who actually owned it. The Spanish were the first to colonize in Florida at St. Augustine and only had brief peace as sometime in the 17th century, Native Americans and English settlers attacked the people living there.
