Native American Paper! Sam Mor Mrs. Klink Period 5 September 9, 2012 Native American Paper Mor 1 Throughout the years, Native Americans have been portrayed as unintelligent, savages, however that is not the case. They were creative, smart, and resourceful people who were mostly kind to the new settlers. Advertisements, movies, and other sources stereotype the Native Americans and can be pretty offensive. One example from the Indian Cook Book shows how the Native Americans were innovative with their cooking skills as they covered their food in clay so when they cooked it it was well-done, as they liked it.
From the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, Europeans explored and colonized parts of Asia, Africa, and the Americas. As the Europeans continued to discover more fertile and lush areas of the world their greed and lust for wanting control only became enraged. This caused them to treat the people horrible unjust and their cruel enslavement over the people only increased eventually causing the people to rebel for their independence. Bartolome de Las Casas’s story of the Brief Account of the Devastation of the Indies is a perfect example of the Spaniards greed, selfishness, and brutality to other human beings. He opens the story up by describing the natives of the Indies.
Compare and Contrast Essay Christopher Columbus’s discoveries are a very controversial matter. Depending on different point of views from historians and readers, he is credited to be guilty for the massacre of many Native people, a famous explorer, as well as a very fake, religious man. All these reasons are examples of why Columbus is a very difficult character in history to tell the truth about because it comes from our opinions as well as our own interpretation of written documents and books.

He published “The Black Legend” and his protests drew attention to the Spanish Empire. This caused a debate in which Las Casas was to present his case in front of an audience including the king of Spain and the Spanish colonial officials presenting their case.

Before enrolling in American Indian Studies 475 I had known that Columbus had not discovered America. I knew that he had landed in what he thought was India and named the local people Indians. What I did not know was where he had actually landed and the destruction he had caused to the local people. Although at first, the deaths were accidental due to lack of immunity to the disease brought by Columbus and his men, the trip slowly turned into one that resulted in essentially the extinction of what Columbus called the Arawak peoples. I think what drew me most to this topic, was the lack of knowledge we have about who Christopher Columbus was, and the atrocities he committed.
He discusses the Indian’s culture and customs with a revolting tone for he is completely against the Indian’s incapably of government and rule. Sepulveda provides a clear proof of the barbarity of the Indians.
