Storyboard Text

  • Effects of European Exploration/Colonization on the Indigenous Population
  • Slavery
  • Resources Taken
  • Destroyed Whole Civilizations
  • Spanish explorers forced natives of the "New World" to work as their slaves in mines or other places as well as forcing them to convert to Christianity.
  • Deaths
  • Europeans mined the native's land and took their crops that can't grow in Europe. Although this helped the Europeans it meant less resources for the native people.
  • New Species
  • Hernan Cortes took over the Aztecs for a while and after leaving it came back and completely dismantled it. Then Fransisco Pizarro followed in his footsteps and took down the Incas.
  • Many indigineous people died after being over worked,starved. or getting a disease from one of the explorers. Since the natives were isolated their immune systems weren't prepared for many of the bacteria the Europeans had.
  • The Spanish brought over new animals like horses, cattle, sheep, and pigs that weren't native to the Americas. This completely changed the ecosystems and provided new agricultural opportunity for the natives.
