Unformatted text preview: Essential Questions ❖ What was the political environment in Europe that led to the exploration and colonization of the New World? ­It was more about power for countries. Certain countries started to recognize their country’s power. And that they could travel and explore other lands and find riches and expand territory. ❖ How did the commercial incentive of the New World affect the rivalry between Spain and England? ­Both countries fought to have land in the New World. England and Spain were two both very powerful countries, so both of them wanting to own big territory in the New World didn’t help them getting along or making peace. Both were money and power hungry. ❖ What were the cultural exchanges between the Native American civilizations and the European settlers? ­The Europeans wanted to convert the Native Americans into Catholics. The Indians took their religion and mixed it with the Europeans. Hence that’s where a lot of Catholic Saints come from in Mexico. The Europeans also taught the Indians how to own land and trade. ❖ How did the geography influence the location of European colonies? ­The Europeans probably started in the East because it’s closer to Europe than the the West is. They probably found territory with rich soil and good fishing, and farming. Warm Up THE MEXICANS STRIKE BACK ❖ The intended audience for this picture is probably people who do not like the Indians and want to make them look bad. ❖ The artist's goal was to show how the spanish looked and how their weapons were better than the Indians. And to show how much better the Spanish looked than the Indians. ❖ The artist was biased to the Indians because first the painter is Spanish. As well as the painter made the Indians look stupid, as you can see one is wearing a chicken costume, which they probably didn’t have then. And you can see that the Spanish have nice armor on and nice weapons. PIZARRO IN PERU ❖ The intended audience for this piece was probably Europeans, because the painter of this piece made it clear to show how hostile the Indians were being towards to Europeans. ❖ The artist’s goal was to make the Indians look bad, and to make them look like they were being hostile to the Europeans before they even set foot on land. ❖ The artist is biased to the Indians because the Indians probably weren’t hostile, more than likely they would have been confused and scared of white men coming on their land. The Europeans were the ones that took Native Americans for slaves and took their land that wasn’t theirs to begin with. DE SOTO IN NORTH AMERICA ❖ The intended audience for this piece was probably for anyone. Because it shows De Soto and his troops killing innocent Indians for no reason. This piece was for people to see how horrible De Soto was. ❖ The artist’s goal was to show how horrible De Soto and his men were to Indians. ❖ I do not believe the artist was biased in this piece. Because it is showing the real events that took place in 1540 and what De Soto really did and how horrible it was. WHAT DO THESE PRINTS TELL YOU AS A WHOLE ABOUT THE INTERACTIONS OF NATIVE AMERICANS AND EUROPEANS? ❖ I believe that these pictures show how cruel the Europeans were to the Indians, and how some artist make them look stupid and make them look like the bad guys. These pictures also show the history of what really happened and what it look like back then. The Europeans and the Spanish obviously took advantage of the Indians and made the give up their land and even kill innocent Indians without and warning. This is our cruel history. ...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
