2.) Two explorers of early America shared different views when it came to Native Americans. Christopher Columbus viewed then as nothing of any real importance. While Cabeza De seems to have an unusual sympathy for Native Americans. A actual account from a the natives would of allowed us to put in to perspective.
3.) Bartolom de Las Casas depicts the islands of the New World as a paradise the population as docile and very willing to submit unto the Christian ways and doctrine. He also describes a unjust and needless slaughter of many native. Unlike previous explorers Las Casa sheds light of the main motive of the Spanish was to obtain wealth and gold and not to civilize the New World.
