Today we used what we had learned from the Silas Deane reading over the summer to take a fresh look at Pre-Columbian Native american societies and the nature of contact with European arrivals to the Americas. We examined some sources from the historical record and compared them to representations of Native people in mainstream media and discussed the disparities. We then briefly discussed the diversity present in Native societies and the reasons Europeans were interested in and capable of coming to the Americas.
Don't forget that Chapter 2 notes are due on Monday! I have attached below the four square chart I presented in class today that you should complete after reading each Chapter. If you have any questions, shoot me a message! Have a great weekend!
