Social studies work of America By: Juan Manuel Leyva Zornoza and Valentina Sarmiento Osorio America´s colonization
Differences Didn't give the advantage of “home rule” and “dominion” to its colonies, they were just territories that were productive to France, but France finally lost colonies, for example, in America, when sold Louisiana, which was considerably big. Britain offered to some of its colonies the advance and privilege of the "home rule“ or the "dominion", the home rule was applied in Ireland, where Britain gave the Ireland this benefit that consisted in giving Ireland local control over internal matters only, while Canada had the benefit of the dominion, which meant that Canada was self-governing in domestic affairs but still remained Part of the British empire. Spanish colonies in America, forced people in their culture and religion. Spaniards weren't only using these "Indians“ (quotes are due to the fact that the weren't Indians, but Americans) to work but to change their religion and their beliefs to Catholicism, this forcing was done with too much violence. This is what mainly characterizes each. French colonizers in America English colonizers in America Spanish colonizers in America
Differences While Spain forced "Indians“ to believe in something they just didn't want, Britain didn't seem to care about it, while France just sold its colonies to others.
Similarities What the Conquerors have in common is that they wanted new lands and new profits from the conquered tribe or place, they were looking new places to sell it and to put it at work for example: in Agriculture, another thing that they have in common is that they wanted to govern everything that they wanted in the conquered land, The Spanish, The English and the French people wanted to be mayors of the cities and on everything that occurred there, for example: They wanted to govern their own Mercantilism.
Why is religion a basic force in the colonization of America?
In my opinion the religion was a basic force in the colonization of
America because “Indians” were forced to leave their religion, and
believe in a another one, so they had faith on their religion, for he
slavery to finish and have freedom.
Why is profit a basic force in the colonization of America?
Well I think that profit is a basic force in colonization of America because in America there are many gold, gems and Indian goods so the Spanish people forced the “Indians” to take all that things for them to win the same: freedom but the Spanish people didn’t make that.
What are the primal factors that would help the Europeans in taking control over the Native Americans? Develop each one of them. Gold: They wanted to take control over it, all the Gold. Slaves: They also wanted slaves to sell them, and to make them work. Religion: When they discovered America they wanted that the natives forget about their religion and instead they were forced to learn the Catholic religion. Native women (slaves): They wanted the native women to convert them into service women, ex: clean dishes, prepare food……, they also use them as sexual slaves. Land: They wanted the land to sell the place and explode it ( take the good things).
Religion and profit come together into a devil’s pot; it is evident that in pursuing to conquest peoples and lands, religion was only a moral shield to what became a looting and hacking of our wealth and customs to the Europeans settlers. Are you in agreement with this statement or are we better off by being conquered by a more advance Culture? State your assessment in a composition. We agree because the European people used to take the church as a shield so they can do what they want, example: They are taking money and they say that its for God, but without this foolish colonization we will still indigenous people.
Well, what I think about the colonization is that without it we were indigenous people with the old cultures( native old cultures ) but we could have more health because when the Spanish people came to America they brought with the slaves) some deceases that killed many people; The European people ( the Spanish people ) used the colonization to expand everything that they had, Christian religion: The Spanish soldiers used to teach their new slaves( indigenous people ) the Christian religion, the way they teaches was very brutal, it was with pain. Lands: The Spanish people wanted more lands so they could have more Gold, more money and more slaves. Economics: they wanted also to sell lands, and indigenous thing, that is what I think about the colonization.
