How and why did Europeans perceive the peoples and resources of the New World? How and why did Native Americans perceive the peoples and resources of the Old World?

  • history -

    People perceive others and resources in terms of what is useful to them.

    Europeans wanted the resources of the Americas but had little use for the native inhabitants. Even attempts at enslaving natives wasn't successful for the Spanish.

    Although the natives used some of the resources brought by Europeans, for the most part the newcomers were perceived as invaders.
