Colonial History Notes Analine Hernandez Culture&Geography Mr.Meza Period: 5 March 23,2012
People and countries colonize other people andcountries for bad reasons: to capture slaves,steal land and other natural resources, and tobecome rich.Its sad because they take over another landand make the people into slaves.
For example, the Spanish colonized much ofthe Americas for these reasons.Spanish speakers took over the Americas.
Today, the people of Latin America areprimarily Mestizos (European andNative American Blood).Mostly the people are all European andNative American.
Another example is the Englishcolonization of what is now the US.The US has different people Mexican,American, Chinese, Etc.
The English only stole land and broughtwomen.They brought women to their new land.
There was no desire to take Indians asslaves because Africans were broughtas slaves.If they took the Africans as slaves itwould be the same thing than Indians.
The colonized always come to speakthe language and convert to the religionof the colonizer.People can speak other languages.
Globalization grew from colonization.That they make people make clothingand other wearable things too.
As the world globalized, it becomesmore American and European.The land becomes into american andEuropean land.
Soon, traditional cultures will be goneforever from the earth.There will be no more old traditionalthings from peoples ancestors.
