Native American History

Imagine you are a Native American, a Taino person, living on the island that Columbus would later rename “Hispaniola” (modem day Haiti and Dominican Republic). Describe the Spanish that arrived with Columbus and your response. How do Spanish attitudes toward the environment, religion, and the value/purpose of work and “production” (i.e., what is “workilabor) compare with your own? What do the Spanish want from you? How, specifically, are you going to deal with this newfound situation? Choose what you believe is the most important strategy for survival and defend it.
