    Claire Claire Presentation Transcript

    • One reason many European countries colonized other landsand people is because many European countires wererunning out of natural resources.
    • In Europe by the 1500s and on, there was muchdeforestation and poverty, and the population wasbecoming too great for the land and government to handle.
    • By colonizing the Americas, for example , English, French,Portuguese, and Spanish colonists were able to have newlands and opportunities, but in the process millions of NativeAmericans , were killed, enslaved,intermarried,or forced toleave their land.
    • Indeed , the European colonization of the Americans wasperhaps the bloodiest and most horrific time in humanhistory.
    • Besides the genocide of Native Americans, Europeancolonists brought African claves to the Americas to work,especially after finding out that Native Americans would justdie in slavery.
    • Imagen this: men, who youve never seen before, come toyour house and your neighbors house and they all have asmuch weapons as they can carry.
    • Then they start killing or enslaving you, you family, andyour nieghbors.
    • And you and your family and neighbors fight back but arecrushedur niegf by the mens superior weapons.
    • And soon, you and most of your family and your neighborsare gone--killed, enslaved, intermarried, or forced to livesomewhere else.
    • This is what colonization is : it is death, it is slavery ; It isthe end of one group and the expansion of another group.
