For the Unit 2 Discussion, you need to re-read:
Columbus’s Probanzo de merito of 1493 and Bartolome de Las Casas on the Mistreatment of Indians (for discussion).pdf
Also be sure you read the following from the unit content:
Primary Source: A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia (excerpt)
Native Americans Discover Europeans (The Gentleman of Elvas) (primary source)
How the Winnebago First Came into Contact with the French and the Origin of the Decora Family (primary source)
After you have finished reading, consider this question: Was conflict between the Europeans and the Native Americans inevitable? Could it have been avoided?
Initial post:
If your last name is between A-L, you will take the position that the conflict was inevitable. In your initial post, give three reasons why it was unavoidable. Use brief quotations from the readings to support your position.
Remember that you need to cite your source when you quote from a reading. Reminder: Quotations should not be more than 10-15% of your paper. They are not to take the place of your own ideas or thoughts; they help support your ideas and thoughts. For these readings, use these in-text citations and these full citations at the end of your postings.
