Native American Indian and a French Explorer


NATIVE AMERICANS ALONG OUR EASTERN ATLANTIC COAST WELCOMED EUROPEAN EXPLORERS, BUT NATIVES ALONG THE GULF OF MEXICO DID NOT. IT SEAMS THE SPANIARDS AND PORTUGUESE CAPTURED AND MISTREATED THOUSANDS OF NATIVES THERE. NATIVES WERE CAPTURED IN ORDER TO MINE THE MOUNTAINS OF THE CARIBEAN SEA, CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA.

THE NEXT DRAWING IS A MAP OF CHESAPEAKE BAY, WHERE MANY NATIVES WERE FOUND BY FRENCHMEN WHO TRADED WITH THEM OVER WATER.

New World French Fort



FRENCHMEN TRIED TO SETTLE AMERICA'S ATLANTIC COASTLINE, BUT OTHER EUROPEANS HAD OTHER IDEAS ABOUT THAT. MANY SMALL FORTS WERE BUILT ALONG COASTS AND RIVERS BY THE FRENCH, BUT NONE SURVIVED ATTACKS BY VARIOUS NATIVES, SPANIARDS AND PIRATES.
