Spanish and the Natives

  1. 1. The Spanish and The Natives By Angelina Lopez Friday, December 18, 2009
  2. 2. The Encomienda System The Spanish conquistadors believed that the native people of the new world were pagan and savage. The Spanish government decreed the Encomienda system to be established in the new world; it signified the oppression and the exploitation of the native indians. The primary purpose of the Encomienda system was to indoctrinate the natives in the Catholic faith. Friday, December 18, 2009
