Some Indian merchants had realized that these trades were unfair so only sold good furs for what they believed was goo manufactured goods. Though there weren’t disputes between the French and the Indians, land disputes would break out between the Indians over hunting grounds. This trade made for a far less stressful relation between the French and the indigenous people of the ‘New World’. Trade did have its faults for the Indians. Disease brought with the French quickly killed many Natives because they didn’t have any immunes built up.
Combining under one political structure would solve many of the problems and instabilities that they were faced. Corn Laws gave Canadian farmers a market in Britain, which was not available to their American counterparts. Exports were just as valuable to Britain as to Canada. However, when the Corn Laws were repealed by Britain in 1846, the Canadian farmers were now placed in competition with the Americans and other countries for the British markets. This increased stress for the farmers as their main source of income and survival drastically decreased.
Hunter Harper Paper 1 Indians and disease Collin G. Calloway says it is true that disease was a key factor in the depopulation of native Americans in America. Calloway reveals that the European invasion was a great factor of epidemics. The disease they fought were smallpox, diphtheria, measles, bubonic, and pneumonic plaque, cholera, influenza, typhus, dysentery, and yellow fever. The native Americans had a tough time fighting theses diseases due to lack of knowledge of cures. These cures were mostly attempted by plant or herb remedies and often failed to provide protection for the Indian population.
The Indians did not really differentiate the Europeans and the slaves that they brought with them to the newly discovered lands. The Indians seemed to view them as both as outsiders coming into their territory. The French was the first to settle into Mississippi and with them they brought slaves with them to work the lands. The French settled
Racial ideologies compare and contrast essay Racial ideologies have tremendous impact on the societies, particularly those with mixed races. The practice of racial prejudice and stereotypes changing a society can be seen from 1500-1830 in North America, and of Latin America and the Caribbean. In both regions, the effects of racial ideologies can best be seen in the treatment of natives to the region and of slaves. But, because of the strong influence of different European nations, and their differing standards, contrasting societal effects can be observed depending on who was responsible for the colonization of the region. The idea of European superiority and dominance drove the social structure of the "new world", (consisting mainly of North and Latin Americas and the Caribbean).
Finally, Native Americans did not have a lot of major diseases before Europeans arrived and did not develop the immunity to a lot of the diseases they had in Europe. After Europeans arrived, all of the things changed for the Native Americans. One good thing that came for them was they could trade for new or better goods. Europeans brought things that the Native Americans had never seen before like armor, horses, and foods and could now try and trade for this. Europeans however also brought advanced weapons like guns and they traded for a few but mostly the guns conquered the Native Americans.
The higher alcohol content in hard liquor was more effective for getting drunk yet it also took its toll on the population’s health. Prohibition also created a large amount of bootleggers and moonshiners that were producing home made alcohol that was not always safe to drink. People also tried to get alcohol from sources that were still available and legitimate such as alcohol that was produced for medical, industrial and ceremonial purposes. People even attempted to get alcohol by trying to filter the alcohol out of antifreeze. Many of these homemade alcohols contained much higher percentages of alcohol and they sometimes were unsafe to drink which led to several deaths during the prohibition.
Soon the government invested money just for the research of the influenza epidemic, it wasn’t much and the studies for it didn’t begin until the pandemic was over and a lot of Americans began to loose interest in what caused it. (http://www.pandemicflu.gov/general/greatpandemic2.html) The short term effect of this pandemic was that it killed millions of our people not just in the U S but all around the world, which is never a good thing. The long term effect was that it gave scientists and physicians cause to research and learn more about what caused this pandemic and rectify it or at least ensure that this won’t happen to the extent that it did. It also opened up the doors for research into other fields of medicine. Another problem that I reflected on was the way African Americans were still being treated in the 1900’s.
During early colonization, the Native Americans were either conquered or exploited like the African Americans. The Native Americans were seen as a threat during early colonization as the Europeans were more concerned with exploiting North America’s natural resources than actually establishing colonies. Jesuits missions in New France were to try and persuade the Indians into Christianity and adapt to the European way of life. The Jesuits learned the Native American languages and traveled to where they had potential converters. New Netherland colonies formed bonds with the Indians, as the Native Americans were the major peltry supplier to the Europeans and the Native Americans protected their hunting territories.
Sadly, diseases brought from the Old World wiped out many native civilizations in the New World. 4. The pattern of colonial contact in the Northeast was based more in commerce and trading. They established relationships with the natives with an exchange of goods and ideas. The fisherman were not really interested in conquest, but rather a mutually successful relationship that was beneficial to both.
