Indian conquistadors

  1. 1. Indian Conquistadors Introduction Author: Laura Matthew By: Sonya Sheets
  2. 2. The First Trend: The First Epic Spanish Conquest • Politicians have capitalized anti-Spanish conquest propaganda in Europe to promote the war against Mexico. • War was launched in 1846. • William Heckling deserves recognition for making the history of Spanish conquest available in English. • He wrote History of Conquest In Mexico (1796-1859)
  3. 3. The Second Trend: The Spiritual Conquest • A controversy in whether the Natives will switch to Christianity or stay with their heathen ways. • They indeed clung to Christianity. • This religion was introduced as a solid community attribute to the Mexican Indians. • The conquest was taken for granted.
  4. 4. The Third Trend: Loser History, or the Spanish Conquest as a Nonevent • Bernardo Garcia believed that we could not separate the difference between Political and spiritual conquests. • Cortes was known for having many advantages over his officers, such as cunning, intelligence, and charasmatic appeal to his followers. That could very well be why he lead his conquest to oblivion of Spain.
  5. 5. The Fourth Trend: The Indians As Conquistadors • Conquistadors was a well known name by the Indians, for they even implanted the name into their language, perhaps a name for a kind of Demi-god. • The men known as conquistadors strove to have an infinite meaning in their lives as a conquistador. They were in search for the meaning of life.
  6. 6.

They were in search for the meaning of life.
