Discuss at least two (2) different assumptions Europeans had about Native Americans when the two cultures first met. You must also include a discussion of either how the Conquistadors treated the Indians they met or how the Dutch, particularly under William Kieft, dealt with the various Indian tribes they encountered.

There are a number of different ways to interpret the events that occurred in the American colonies from 1763 until 1775, as we increasingly moved towards armed conflict with England. For example, you might wish to consider when the American Revolution started. Was John Adams right that the Revolution was "complete in the hearts and mind of American twelve years" before the Battle of Concord and Lexington? Or was Dr. Benjamin Rush, a good friend of Ben Franklin's, right that the Revolution "started" with the Battle of Lexington and Concord? Another perspective by which to approach this time period, and the American Revolution for that matter, is to view these events as either being radical or conservative. Regardless of how you choose to approach this time period, you must use three examples INCLUDING the issue of the difference of how American colonists and the English viewed representative government to support your answer as to what the Revolution was all about.

For instance, the common knowledge in Europe was that the natives in the new world were “primitive” and mostly warlike and hostile to each other but gentle and receptive to European newcomers. It was a common belief that the new world natives were ready and eager to exchange the goods they had, particularly native foods and minerals, with European products like food, clothing, and weapons. It is possible that these assumptions were not necessarily true because, apart from the accounts given by the explorers, many European governments were creating propaganda to encourage their citizens to venture into the new world and open new territories as they fought for overseas lands....
