The Native Americans had different plants, wildlife, ideas and technology. This was due to large distances between the continents so only the oldest plants and animals species lived on both continents. Different sorts of fruits, and vegetables were growing in the continents. There were also different livestock being domesticated in The Americas. Native American cultivation was mostly dominated by tomatoes, corn and potatoes while Europe mostly had grains and onions. The Native Americans also lacked in domesticated animals to put to use, this was because most of the animals that lived in The Americas lacked certain features that make them domesticateable. The only animal in The Americas that could be domesticated were Lamas. Lamas were mostly used for their wool but could also be used to carry light items across distances, or were slaughtered for their meat. Europe on the other hand had a lot of animals that they could domesticate. Europe had chickens, cattle, pigs, sheep and horses. This was highly beneficial as they could use them for milk from milking cows, meat from slaughtering and egg from chickens. They could also get wool from shearing sheeps, leather from cow-, and pig-hide. Or use the animals for work purpose as traveling, carrying, or ploughing the
When the Europeans arrived in North America, many changes came into the lives of indigenous
The development of Mesoamerica and Andean South America had one major item in common and that was neither civilization had the strong political powers that ran previous empires such as the Roman. Other likenesses were the agriculture both empires flourished with crops of corn, potatoes and beans because these products thrived in a variety of soils and with different climates (Wallech, 2013). Many differences that these two civilizations differ from others is simply because of location and the rivers that separated them and the ability to move easily and share cultural beliefs and achievements, but no matter how much space is between civilizations there was always violence and the pattern of societies rising and falling ("Notes on Mesoamerican
The Aztecs were an ancient civilization found in Mesoamerica. Two aspects that they are known for are building temples and pyramids and also known for developing a form of writing called hieroglyphics. However, historians should emphasize on agriculture. We should emphasize on agriculture for three reasons.
Europe, such as Spain, France, and England, have had different language, culture, political system, religion and more, which they developed by themselves in their civilization. In the late 1400s to 1500s, Europeans started the colonization and economic competitions each other between countries to get more assets since their resources and lands were limited and not enough. At that time, Spaniards and French had the same purpose for exploring the New World such as pursuing wealth, winning the economic competition, but they approached to Native Americans in different ways. The difference between these two countries when they encounter with Indians was the relationship with Native Americans.
Native Americans were easily conquered by Europeans because of the advantage in development Europe had. The advanced technologies developed in Europe were no match to the old and weak tools of the Americans. The written language that the natives had never truly developed kept these people in the past. And finally the dangerous and deadly diseases brought by explorers and settlers proved to be a huge weapon in winning over America. Europe became the powerful ruler of the world because of the ideas and advantages, “accidental gifts”, that they had received
Mexico is widely known for its rich culture that is complimented by traditional food recipes, music, and art; other things that may come to mind are the popular Mesoamerican civilizations, its beautiful coastal beaches, or even the eagle symbol on the Mexican flag. Nevertheless, something that most definitely does not come to mind is the African descendants and their influences on Mexico’s culture and history.
The early modern era was a time when empires thrived across the globe. The Western Europeans were not the only ones to construct successful empires either. The Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires added to this phenomenon. Although these empires share many similarities, they also have their differences. During the time, 1450 CE -1750 CE, European empires in the Americas and their Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman counterparts are similar in that they all thrived and united diverse peoples and different in that European empires developed something entirely new, an interacting Atlantic World, while the other empires continued older patterns of historical development.
Colonization of North America was heavily influenced by power, wealth, and morality. The "... many encounters between the Native Americans and explorers and African people were forcibly enslaved and brought to the colonies to provide labor.", are part of power ,wealth ,and morality and impacted the colonization of North America. Religious persecution, slavery and greed are direct negative consequences of power ,wealth ,and morality.
Before the Spanish ship that changed it all, which arrived in the “New World” in 1492, thriving organized communities of native people had centuries of history on the land. That ship, skippered by Christopher Columbus, altered the course of both Native American and European history. 1492 sparked the fire of cultural diffusion in the New World which profoundly impacted the Native American peoples and the European settlers.
The Native Americans were the original owners of the United States of America. However, due to the population increase in Europe, the European migrated to America in seek of land for farming, settlement, and spread their religion (Desai, n.p). The two communities lived together and interacted with each other. Nevertheless, the Native American also known to as the Red Indians and the Settlers had differences in many aspects of their economy, religion, and culture. In some situation, it is hard to identify their disparities. On the other hand, the dissimilarities are easily identified. Additionally, there are similarities between these two nations. Culture is the outline of human
History should say that the Aztecs were politically and technologically advanced. The documents A, B, C, D, F, I, J, K, L, M, N, and O are used. These documents can are into two groups: technology and politics. Documents B, D, F, and K, have ideas in which it includes technology to make agriculture more efficient to simply counting the days on a calendar. In the politics group, it also contains a subgroup with military and beliefs. The following groups: A, C, I, J, L, M, N, O represents parts of agriculture, yet mixing in with the political stance of Aztec people.
Throughout the Preclassic period the Maya adapted to diverse environments. The diverse environments provided opportunities for specialized crafters. The products that were created were than used to trade for other goods. The Maya settlements began to grow in not only size, but complexity as well. During the Middle Preclassic Maya society saw increased social and political complexity. It also marked interaction with other Mesoamerican groups. Evolution of society to a more complex society can be seen in the development of large public works, carved monuments, and evidence of warfare. These developments would have been fueled by increased food production, expansion of trade, and the rise of craft specialization. There is also evidence of an elite
Mesoamerica was yet another emerging early civilization that did not experience in a cultural unity such as China or Egypt. There were separate different societies that rose to power and fell with time, leaving marks of historical facts that prove that these societies had continuities and changes.
