The Requirement was usually read to people who did not understand Spanish.� Las Casas, who knew and admired Columbus, recorded that a typical Spanish strategy was to read the Requirement in the night jungle before attacking the villages.� Care was taken so the Requirement would not be read where the natives could hear it, so they would not awaken. [31] � It was sometimes read from ship to the distant shoreline.� For instance, during a 1518 entrada to the Yucat�n, the Spaniards went ashore on the island of Cozumel.� The Spaniards’ reputation preceded them, and the local populace fled.� Undeterred, the Spaniards climbed the town pyramid.� They read the Requirement to the sky, and then posted it (unreadable to the natives) to the side of the pyramid.� Duty was fulfilled. [32] Las C asas’s efforts were inexhaustible regarding the natives’ welfare, and he is seen today as the most radical Spaniard, who came the closest to questioning the entire business of Spain in the New World.� He noted that African slaves seemed hardier than native slaves, and in 1518 his efforts were successful.� The Spanish crown agreed to have African slaves replace native slaves in the mines, and it might have rescued the last natives from extinction, but then the New World’s first smallpox epidemic broke out in the mines, killed off more than half of the remaining natives, and soon swept to the mainland as the Spaniards invaded the Aztec Empire and killed untold millions.� After observing that African slaves fared little better than natives, Las Casas then sought to ban the use of African slaves, and eventually advocated the position of just having Spanish trading ports in the New World, with priests going forth to try converting the natives.� That proposal was obviously not undertaken.� Other than the sh ort-lived gold strike on Espa�ola, the entire New World business was a disappointment for the Spanish Crown, as not much loot was coming in.� The Spanish invasion finally hit pay dirt when Hernan Cort�s stole the entrada sent out by Cuba's governor, Vel�zquez, in 1519.� Cort�s conquered the Aztec Empire with a few hundred men.� One historian accurately stated that it was a grand tale with everything in it but a hero.� Aztecs were vastly more civilized than Spaniards.� The center of their empire, Tenochtitl�n, was quite possibly the world's most spectacular city: a sparkling, manmade island, sitting in the middle of a vast lake system, in the midst of a majestic valley ringed with mountains and snow-capped volcanoes.

Consequently, various aspects of their reporting must be viewed with skepticism.� Nearly every early interaction with Spanish and Native American cultures show that when given a choice, natives thought European culture to be inferior, even when treated to the best that Europe had to offer. [15] � While the Aztecs had a stratified society that was materialistic, violent, and greedy to a degree found nowhere else in the New World, it still paled beside the European versions of those qualities.� When some Brazilian Indians visited France in the 1560s, they were amazed at the disparity in French society, as gluttons turned away emaciate beggars at their doors.� The Indians did not understand why the poor did not kill the rich. [16] � Wh en Charles Mann asked seven scientists and academics in the early 21st century where they would have chosen to live in 1491, Europe or with the Iroquois, the scholars, who were all specialists in the subject, were wary of being asked such a question, being acutely aware of the presentism issue.� Nevertheless, with all their caveats, all seven of them chose the Iroquois. [17] � Native Americans also valued cleanliness, which was a virtue that Europeans would not appreciate for centuries.� When Portugal’s Corte Real expedition landed in today’s Newfoundland in 1501, or Ayll�n's ships sailed to South Carolina in 1521, or France’s Verrazano expedition of 1524 explored the coastline from the Carolinas to Maine, or Cartier ’s expedition explored the St.
