Native American Narratives
My tribe is almost all gone. Most of my relatives had smallpox and died.
The Europeans came and demanded we change our religion to Christianity but they looked like Gods.
Extreme European Exploration
I am on my way to the New World to get gold for my country, Spain.
I am here to hunt beaver for my countries for my country's trade.
I'm here to colonize. I also want to gain as much land as possible
I grow crops such as cotton and tobacco to sell to England. Lots of people live here now because of our booming tobacco business.
We almost died off, but thanks to John Rolfe and his new tobacco plants, we are a thriving colony.
When the Europeans came to Georgia, they first encountered the Mississippi Indians. The Native Americans thought that they were gods and conformed to their request. But the Mississippi Indian population declined due to disease and fighting.
The first person to arrive in Georgia was Hernando de soto and he came in search of gold. The French came to colonize as well and made money from trading beaver pelts. The English arrived to colonize the land as well. The Europeans ultimately killed off 90% of the natives
One of the first major English colonies was Jamestown, but Georgia was a buffer colony as a result of the colonization. It was there as a barrier to prevent fighting between the Spanish and the French who all owned land around Georgia.
