  • Portugal shall go to India! Vasco De Gama will lead the expedition!
  • I, King Manuel, confirm King Jao's wishes and want Vasco De Gama to lead the expedition to India!
  • Oh no King Jao is dead!
  • Where is everyone?!
  • After the return of Bartholomeu Dias King Jao of Portugal decided to fund an expedition to India. He chose Vasco Da Gama as the leader of the new expedition due to Gama's vast knowledge of navigation and track record.
  • King Jao died, which allowed King Manuel to rise to power. King Manuel respected King Jao's wishes and had Vasco Da Gama lead the mission to India. Four vessels left the ports of Lisbon in 1497 in search of an alternative route to India.
  • Thank you for sharing this moment with us!
  • dancing is so fun!
  • On July 17, 1497 most of the crew could not find Da Gama due to the massive amounts of fog surrounding the boats. Two of the boats met up on July 22. On July 26 all four boats met back up and went on their way.
  • Thank you so much. The clothes are great!
  • You are welcome to anything in my land.
  • The men anchored and named where they stopped Santa Helena. Da Gama took a native abroad, fed him and put European clothing on him. Soon many of natives were seeking to see what the men had to offer. Fernao Velloso went with some natives and returned upon them attempting to attack him. The natives attacked the men and all the boats left.
  • While in the Bay of Sam Bras the men befriended the locals. The natives brought hundreds of people, animals and music. Together the locals and the Portuguese danced and ate. There was a misunderstanding and the Portuguese had to leave because they almost got in a fight.
  • The men desperately needed a port and stopped at a random village. The chief was very helpful, he gave two of the men garments. This was an overall positive interaction and the men left on good terms with the natives. The men named this place Terra da Boa Gente.
