Transcript

  • 1. Bridging the conquest of Yucatan Matthew Restall PowerPoint by Cherstin BjarnsonExcerpt from “The Human Tradition in Colonial Latin America”
  • 2. GasparAntonio Chiwas a MayanNoblemanwho was bornbefore theSpanishinvasion ofYucatan
  • 3. Although employed by the Spanishfor most of his life, Chi played a partin the remembrance of the indigenouspopulation. Chi writes of how heremembers the land of the Yucatanbefore the Spanish conquests as oneof “prosperity and great abundance,well-governed, and denselypopulated”, and how their systemseemed to disappear and flounderafter the Spanish colonists arrived. Bymaking this account Chi allowed ussee inside the minds of the natives,and not just the Spaniards (who werepushing their own version of history)
  • 4. Chi witnessed the fight, not only over the control of the colony, but over the nature it would be governed and the views on native culture and colonization in general.My theory is that Chi, being of the Mayans, felt that it was necessary to join the Spaniards in order to preserve himself and his people.
