Isabella sponsored the voyage of Christopher Columbus which brought money to Spain and a new world. When Columbus discovered the new land they were given to Castile because of Isabella’s sponsorship. With the new world some Native Americans were sent to the new land to be slaves but Isabella disagreed with that and believed they should be treated fairly and with justice. Ferdinand and Isabella were parsons and they made Spain better by establishing buildings and institutions for education. Ferdinand and Isabella both knew Latin and they could read.
I assume this because in the letter, Christopher Columbus states “As soon as I arrived in the Indies, in the first island which I found, I took some of the natives by force, in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts” (Stearns). The Indians would also give Columbus and his crew materials such as spices, cotton, and even gold. Since this letter is coming from Christopher Columbus, he makes the voyage seem very successful, but if this voyage was told from the perspective of one of the crew members there could be a totally different
Prior to the Latin American countries gaining independence, the Creole elites expressed great displeasure with the crown and readily equated themselves with the American colonists before gaining independence from Britain. With this ideology, many Creole’s became enfranchised with Anglo-European culture and enlightenment, convinced that this culture would solve their perceived problems. The Latin American Creole’s believed in both Charles Darwin and Spencer, to show that the fittest survive through evolution and that those concepts apply to the society they lived in. Spencer reinforced the belief that science, industry and progress were interlinked, and with the evolution of society their nations would bloom. Therefore, if an individual was failing in life, blame
Spain Spain wanted to colonize America so they could build their empire, create additional trading ports and routes, to expand their military control, and to convert the native people to their religious beliefs. Spain explored america to look for gold. Spain also wanted adventure. Since Spain followed the mercantilism economic method, it damaged local industry, restricted trade, prohibited manufacturing and slowed down town growth in order to create economic environment. This is why Spain was had a huge advantage.
The French and Spanish both expanded to the Americas during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Both had different desires in doing so, but had similar viewpoints on the Natives that have settled American lands. The French sought out to find tradeable goods and new riches in the Americas while the Spanish expanded due to religion, competition and slavery. In Document 5, an Algonquian village with the name “Secotan” is pictured showing readers what a Native village in the Americas may have looked like in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Cottages made with lumber and sticks were used as shelter and storage facilities for food and weapons.
This helped improve the family structure. “Conclusion” After the Europeans stole the land from the people who originally inhabited America, order was needed. Colonization was the answer. The “interest in colonization grew in part as a response to social and economic problems. The English people suffered from frequent and costly European wars, and from almost constant religious strife with their own land.” – Page
The Spanish and the British wanted to colonize in America for a lot of the same reasons, such as natural resources and to expand their countries empires, but the two differed on many things such as the treatment of indigenous people and religion. The Spanish were the first to colonize America in
The conquerors were supposed to take care of the indians and also christianise them. They sadly didn 't do that though, they usually took the indians as slaves and took their land to gain more power. The encomienda system can be thought of as a pyramid. The peninsulares were on the top which meant they had the most power and the most money, they were born in Spain. Creoles were next, they were born in Spain and had their parents born in spain too.
Levy tells the story of Hernan Cortes, originally setting sail from Spain, as he sailed from Cuba to the shores of Mexico in 1519, eager about the discovery of new lands. Cortes, as well as many other explorers during this time, was inspired by the Three G’s: God, gold, and glory. He planned to conquer the new lands for Spain, to convert the natives to Catholicism, and to obtain the riches of the land, mostly gold. Conquistador is basically a record of the last days of the Aztec civilization, as the two groups, the Aztecs and the Spaniards, clash, and the Spaniards ultimately come out on top. When Cortes and his men first arrived on the island of Cozumel in 1519, they were unaware that a complex and advanced civilization was just beyond the shores of Mexico.
Columbus accidently started the Columbian exchange by discovering America while looking for economic opportunity. He was looking for a way to sail and trade directly with Asia. After he realized that the place he landed wasn 't Asia he realized the natives had gold, so he took it back to Spain. One major effect of the Columbian Exchange was the spread of diseases. When Columbus and other explorers ventured to the Americas they spread European diseases to the natives.
Columbian Exchange The most important historical impact of the Columbian Exchange is human because they are the first to form settlement on the native land. According to Mr. Johnson 's history slide shows Columbus sailing from Spain wanting to trade with India, however traveled to another route instead. Once he arrived to the new land he greeted with the indian tribe and convince them to trade with him. In the first Columbus video shows Columbus was a nice person who tries to negotiate with the indians, however the indian rebelled and caused destruction. The European in Columbus group dominated over the indians and used them for slavery.
And in 1587 Raleigh arranged for John White to to return to America in another attempt to establish a colony. In 1588 King Philip II of Spain wa outraged that England had ventured into lands reserved by the Pope for Catholics. Spain no longer had a monopoly on colonization in the New World. Ricahrd Hakluyt promoted colonization, Queen Elizabeth 's advisors decided that the time had come for England to enter the competition for America and the reasons were as such balance of trade, remedy for population pressures and Protestantism. Based off of the Columbian Echange, it seems like the degree of economics is more important then religion, even though religion is important as well it just does not hold the same value of importance as resources, goods and services.
Native Americans also had a different political system, religious views, and family structure then the Europeans. In 1492, supported by Spain and tasked with finding a westward route to Asia by sea and negotiate trade agreements, Christopher Columbus discovered the New World. After two more voyages to the New World, Columbus died in 1506 thinking he had discovered a route to Asia. Not until another explorer by the name of Amerigo Vespucci came to South America, did the Europeans discover they had stumbled upon an entirely different continent. Entry 2 Where did the Spanish settle in the New World?
Starting in the Mid-15th century, many European nations sent out explorers in order to find new sea routes, as well as new territories. That’s how Christopher Columbus stumbled upon the West Indies and therefore indirectly opened up the New World for others to explore. On the quest to create more wealth for their own nation through mercantilist policies, Europeans, as well as different religious groups, colonized the New World one by one. In the process of colonizing, when the European nations realized they needed a workforce to support the production of their cash crops, they brought over African slaves as part of the Columbian exchange which in turn introduced a solution - and a new problem. For the mercantilist European nations, their colonies were important as they produced raw materials - grain, sugar, or tobacco - for the nation, which otherwise they would have to import.
Some of the Amerindians who lived in the areas of eventual colonization were the Olmecs, Zapotecs, Mixtecs, Maya, Purepecha (Tarascan), and the Aztecs, among others. They were spread out from the Gulf of Mexico to Tenochtitlan and south. Little did they know that when Hernan Cortes made his voyage to the area, he would turn their whole world upside down. Starting just before the 16th century, explorers from Spain and Portugal became curious of the stories of land and riches they had heard in relation to the Americas. The Spanish were the first to venture that direction, with the Portuguese not far behind.
