              What is genocide? (“Columbus and the Indians,” p. 10)

              Why did the Spaniards need to look for other slaves?
              (top of p. 77)

              Why did the Spanish and Portuguese enslave
              Africans? (top of p. 77)

              Feel free to include your opinion on whether you think
              Christopher Columbus is a “hero” or a “villain.” Why do
              you think the truth is not usually told about him?
               • In Mexico and Peru, the Spaniards /
                 conquistadors grabbed the resources,

                 that are made from these materials.
                  – The unprocessed, natural resources (raw
                    materials) are brought to Europe.
                  – There they are manufactured and processed to
                    make products (finished goods).
                  – These products are more expensive than the
                    raw materials, and are then sold in the colonies
                    for Europe to make money.
