The Spanish led by Christopher Columbus have their first encounter with Native people in the Americas.
THE EUROPEANS ARRIVED ON A CARRIBEAN ISLAND.
WE HAVE FINALLY REACHED THE INDIES!!!
Columbus,there's other people here...
Give me the flag. I'm claiming this land for Spain.
These people are not like us.
THE ISLANDERS KOWN AS THE TAINO WERE AWARE.
They could be trading partners. We could share our stuff with these men.
They could be invaders...
The people of the foreign land traded with them, and showed the Spanish great amounts of kindness. In return, the Spanish proceeded to introduce theirselves.
So nice of you to visit! You are different, but that will not stop us from caring for you.
You are the Indians! I found my way to Asia! The monarchs will LOVE ME for this!
I feel like I have smallpox or something...
Take care! Until next time?
THE TWO DIVERSE CULURES CLASHED, AND IT WENT WELL. THERE WAS ONE MINOR SETBACK, HOWEVER. THE SPANISH WANTED MORE GOLD THAN THEY RECIEVED.
I don't get it. They treated us as trading equals, but they didn't hand us enough riches! They must really not know what I'm doing here, because I am not your average trading parner. I am Christopher Columbus, and I arrive in the name of God, glory, and GOLD!
