Storyboard Text

  • European peoples sought to establish their presence in the Americas. This is due to different aspects such as technological advances, and especially epidemic diseases. 
  • The European migrants interacted with the native inhabitants, which sparked the spread of diseases such as smallpox.
  • The Europeans had an advantage over the Natives because they were immune to the diseases that the Natives had never been exposed to.
  • Certain groups that were devastated due to the diseases were Taino people, the Aztecs, the Incas, and the indigenous people of Brazil.
  • Around 90% of Native Americans died due to epidemic diseases.
  • Due to the rapidly declining populations of the Natives, the Europeans were able to establish a significant presence in the Americas and create colonial societies.
