Purchase of Manhattan by the Dutch.

Storyboard Text

  • My name is Peter Minuit and I have been sent to New Amsterdam (Manhattan) to diversify the colony's economy and settle land disputes for His Majesty the king of Holland, Frederik Hendrik.
  • "Would you sell me Manhattan Island?"
  • "Sure! Let me have some of those useful objects you have there. Like those farming and cooking tools."
  • "What are they doing on OUR land?"
  • I can't wait to tell King Frederik, that I bought Manhattan for some kettles, axes, hoes and awls.
  • I wonder when the Weckquaesgeeks are going to figure out I, "SOLD" their island to the Dutch?
