In 1607 British first landed on Jamestown, modern day Virginia. They had hoped to receive a good treatment and acceptance from the natives however they faced the disease and starvation in the colony which made it difficult for the colonists to settle. It was trade with Indians, good leadership and Indians teaching how to grow crops enabled the colonist to subsist. A very profitable trade was developed between the Indians and British. Later the indians suspected the colonists wanted to rule them and control the colony.

He also drew upon the hypocrisy that lingered in Spanish Catholicism as they began to perform “other superstitious rites, giving the children to understand that they must all do this in the future” to question whether the true motive of the Spanish in converting them was to either changed them into civilized Catholics or simply into resources. Pontiac, the leader of Pontiac’s Rebellion, gave a different look by stating that the Native Americans were not slaves of the white people and had the same needs of white people in which they “could not live without bread and pork and beef!” He concluded that the Native Americans were just like them, only to be manipulated by economic pressures of “guns, knives, kettles, and blankets” that had made them less independent. Despite all of this, the Founding Fathers decided to not include the Native Americans. One reason was that they were portrayed more as unfit animals in which Bartolome de Las Casas noted how “the Spaniards” had “pitilessly called them lazy
May-Lee Hoshi Modern World History 2B Bapi DBQ 17: Imperialism in India: An Evaluation European Imperialism in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries converted areas of Africa and Asia into a colonial empire that had really benefited the British. The Imperialism in India allowed the British to improve socially and economically without any negative consequences, while India, the colony, made great strides, but paid the price through lack of independence and the inability to develop as an industrial state. Both the colony and colonizers had a different point of view on what was happening to the countries. The British, the colonizers, believed that they were doing the countries a favor by helping India. British had introduced to the colony many new manufactured goods, technology, education, means or transportation and most importantly, better and quicker ways of communication (Document 1).
The colonies could not compete with British manufacturing as they only produced raw goods of the products. The British also enacted the Navigation Acts to ensure a proper trade balance. Explain the Navigation Acts. This navigation caused the colonies to become upset with the British. The colonies were in a predicament where they wanted to control their own economic issues but could not because of the strict British control.
Conciliation with America Craig Wells Excelsior College Abstract As the colonies were separating themselves from the rule of tyranny and the Parliament authority, a few members of the House of Commons were striving for reconciliation with the American colonists. Taxes were being levied without the consent of the colonies and hostilities increased driving us towards war. Some members of Parliament criticized England of poor government and corruption and worked to negate a conflict with the colonies. A great new land was about to be born and instead of letting this new country develop and help provide for the greater of the English empire, the crown held it down with the chains of oppression.

They were selfish, and only kept the Indians around until they had what they needed from them, then they shunned and isolated them from their own lands. They were only interested in getting what they needed from the Indians so they could establish their colonies, especially their land. One of the major tribes that tried to befriend the English were the Powhattans. They were interested in helping the English in areas such as trade and setting them up with land. They also offered to join as allies against neighboring tribes.
This source tell us that the Irish believed the English Protestants had no reason to be in Ireland and the only reason they were there was as an oppressive power. It also says they trampled on their rights and liberties meaning they took advantage of the Irish by charging them unfair rent and not paying them for improvements they made to the land. For example if they built a fence the landlord would not pay them even though it was needed to prevent the animals escaping. It then states ‘the real owners of the soil were removed to make room for cattle’. This tells us the Irish believe they own the soil because it was theirs before the English invaded.
He and other Congregationalists believed Charles I was more hostile to the Puritans than his father had been. Under his leadership, the Church of England attempted to suppress Puritan practices. Apprehensively, the Congregationalists were convinced that they will no longer be able to practice their religion freely in their homeland. They wanted to remain committed to reforming the Church of England but considered the thought that they can pursue that aim in America. John Winthrop, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Company, organized the initial migration of the Puritans, transferring the Massachusetts Bay Company headquarters to New England where they settled in the
The Indians did not have a belief in heaven or hell but the ones who followed Christianity worried whether their souls would only go to heaven where the Europeans were and not to their people. The only similarity the Europeans and Indians shared was interdependence. The Europeans would trade their ammunition and guns and machinery to the Native Americans who would in turn give them food and supplies they needed. The Indians did not have experience with the European warfare, however considering the Native american weapons were all hand made from nature. They also shared some
