Early Relations between American Indians
and colonists.

Interactions between colonists and Indians
The Indians and colonists start with a good relation changing the data they have, like the Indians show them the corn and the colonists show Indians they sophisticated weapons.
“The Indians and colonists of the Bay region shared its land and resources for almost 40 years in mutualaccommodation. The main colonizing regions of Europe were those where ocean-worthy shipbuilding innovations and navigational technology and skills were developing, as well as an expanding population willing and able to establish themselves in foreign lands. The Spanish and Portuguese centuries-old experience of conquest and colonization during the conquest, coupled with new oceanic ship navigation skills(developed mainly in Italy), provided the tools, ability, and desire to colonize the New World”

When European colonists came to America the first thing they do was create a relationship with the Indians. This was because they really need to learn how they survive and their methodsto do their daily activities. Like how they get their food without the tools the colonists use. Or how Indians organize, they start to learn the language they spoke to have a better communication and make it simpler. The American Indians thought that if they teach colonist everything they want, they will let them use their tools. So American Indians were cheated. Colonists bring with them adisease that affected a lot to the American Indians.

What they learn about each other?
The American Indians treat the Europeans at the beginning with kindness and respect because they think they just want to know about their culture. Indians show how to make things like: fishing but not only from a canoe, from the part they were able; that was part of the Indians daily work because it was the waythey survive every day. Another fact the Indians teach to the Europeans was some food like the corns, the colonist didn’t have the idea of what that was. The colonists want to know about the Indian culture to know it deeply and then they will know like how to attack them. In few words the Indians were deceived by the Europeans. I think any one will do what Indians did because the colonists camewith things were amazing and so innovative to them. They bring or they have the capacity to make and built ships to navigate. They have some important navigation skills that actually were really useful.

The relation between the American Indians and the Colonistswere unstable because at the beginning were the Europeans settle in their lands they have like a relation that consist in changing the knowledge each one have. Both teach them things were important. Of course that the colonists never had the intention of make an alliance or a good relation but at the first time they truly need the American Indians to follow their plan, because they know thatIndians were like a lot more than the colonists were. So they have to attack with plans like diseases and unexpectedly wars. When all wars and problems begin is where the relation between this two change a lot and they were officially enemies that were fighting for the same properties.

“When the Europeans arrived and settled, they changed the Native American way of life for the worst. These...
