Native Americans had a spiritual vision of Nature and could not conceive land ownership as something respectable Native Americans viewed land as something that was to be used communally by all the members of a tribe. There was no idea among the Indians that land was something to be divided up, sold, and owned by individuals. English approach to settlement versus others, such as Spanish and French ***spanish and french colonies only allowed Catholics in the New World, whereas, english colonies allowed all types of protestants 250,000 in english colonies The english came to the New World with the idea of creating permanent settlements 15,000 in french colonies The french did not come to the New World with the thought of creating permanent settlements Canada, michigan, wisconsin Make money off fur trade business 4,5000 in spanish colonies Had a hard time getting own Spanish people to settle in their colonies Encomienda and repartimiento systems The encomienda system was a labor system instituted by the Spanish crown in the American colonies. In this system, a Spanish encomendero was granted a number of native laborers who would pay tributes to him in exchange for his protection The encomienda was a dependency relation system, that started in Spain during the Roman Empire, where the stronger people protected the weakest in exchange for a service. It was later used during the Spanish colonization of the Americas and the Philippines It was beneficial to the Spanish because they were able to extract labor at no cost. ... The encomienda system (in theory) was a feudal-like system where Spaniards would offer protection and education to the native populations in exchange for labor and money/gifts. Encomienda was more like slavery. ... Whereas, repartimiento were not slaves because they were not owned and had limits on the amount of work. The encomienda and repartimiento both received very little and protection. Both encomenderos had a certain number of natives they were in charge of. With the New Laws of 1542, the repartimiento was instituted to substitute the encomienda system that had come to be seen as abusive and promoting unethical behavior. The repartimiento was not slavery , in that the worker is not owned outright— being free in various respects other than in the dispensation of his or her labor—and the work was intermittent.

    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.
