Storyboard Text

  • What language are they speaking?
  • Hello!
  • Hello!
  • What language are they speaking?
  • We must move on from this new land and go to India
  • Ok. Send one ship back to Portugal and the rest will go to India
  • But shouldn't we tell the king about our discovery
  • King Manuel, we have just discovered a new territory to the Southwest
  • We must send a voyage to explore these new lands as soon as possible!
  • Portuguese "efforts to communicate with the Indians were largely futile." They found a village a short distance away, where a few sailors traded trinkets and bells for parrots and caps.
  • Cabral called a meeting of "all captains" in order to determine what to do after discovering this new land. He eventually decided to send one ship home to tell King Manuel of the new land and take the rest of the fleet to India.
  • Upon hearing news of the new territory, Manuel immediately sent out another set of three ships to explore Brazil further. He sent the ships in 1501, before Cabral's main fleet had returned from India.
  • Cabral never visited Brazil again, just as he never returned to India after this mission, but his voyage united the trade of four continents - Europe, America, Africa and Asia - set the stage for the development of a Portuguese land empire in the Americas.
