The New World

Hispaniola is a miracle. Mountains and hills, plains and pastures, are both fertile and beautifulharbors are unbelievably good and there are many wide rivers of which the majority contain gold…There are many spices, and great mines of gold and other metals…”

Christopher Columbus, report to the Court of Madrid 1492

“They…brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for glass beads and hawk’s bells. They willingly traded everything they owned…They do not bear arms, and do not know them…They have no iron…They would make fine servants…With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”
