some could be further fleshed out with more specific examples. On the film portion, you don’t need to keep referring to the English as “pale skinned foreigners”, that’s how they seemed to Natives but they’re English colonists. Tell us more about how that initial relationship changed as more English began to arrive.
On the document, use our primary source we assigned and tell us about the language from that primary source and how those assumptions would come to impact Native peoples.
You can revise this part and resubmit. I can help you during office hours.

t 1) Analyze one major historical theme from your film(s). You will have seen and taken notes on all of our very important films on this topic, but for this essay, choose a major issue or central historical theme from our documentaries (use your notes you took from the study guides I gave you- those are important for this and midterm), develop it with specific examples, and tell us all of the ways that issue is important for our understanding of the Americas (in what ways is it a “colonial legacy”?). Show that you’re making connections with our lectures and readings (especially since the films we’ve seen in class are excellent but have blind spots and flaws as we’ve discussed in class).
Films we’ve seen: “We Shall Remain: After the Mayflower” (the most complete and best made film we’ve seen); “Engineering an Empire: Aztec”; “Guns, Germs & Steel” (good films, but we will have mentioned several problems with each of these two)
Sample themes: the complexities of Native Societies, how they organized their societies, adapted to their surroundings and adapted to colonization; the complexities of “Settler Colonialism” in the U.S. Northeast (today’s New England; “Big Geography” and the factors that contributed to global inequality and shaped and impacted the conquest/colonization of the Americas; Spanish/English attitudes towards Native Peoples and consequences; Religion, Religious attitudes and consequences; Germs, Diseases and consequences; Technological imbalance and consequences; the complexities of the conquest (multi-causal).
Length of Part I: one to two substantial paragraphs. Go deep, flesh it out with specific examples
Pt 2) Analysis of ONE of these primary sources (you’ve read them all and we’re discussing them all, but for this short essay, you’re analyzing one of them in depth). Primary sources are first-hand accounts (primary means “first”), eye-witness accounts, people from the time who are writing/recording their participation in historical events, or witnessing those historical events. Examples: letters, journals, speeches, proclamations, declarations.
The primary sources we’ve read and that you can write about are:
1) Excerpts, Journal of Christopher Columbus Links to an external site., 1492. This is the primary source. (See “American Yawp” ch. 1, Pt III “European Exploration important historical context.
3) Excerpts, Bartolomé de las Casas, “In Defense of the Indians,” and Juan Ginés de Sepulveda, 1550 at “Great Debate” in Valladolid (short primary sources), See Chasteen’s “Countercurrents” pp.50-53 and lecture materials for important historical context.
4) “The Town Council of Huejotzingo to the King (of Spain)”, 1560 (Nahuatl language primary source, with names of Indigenous Nobles). See our lectures and Chasteen’s ch. 2 for historical context.
Your primary source analysis (your close reading of the document):
a) Tell us all about the documents that you’ve chosen: who wrote it? to whom? when? why? what was its purpose?
b) Provide historical context from our very important lectures, readings (Chasteen ch. 2 especially) and films. What is going on at the time this primary source is produced? (the “Requirement,” for example comes out of the “Reconquest” of Spain- see “When Muslims Ruled Spain” and lecture; “The Town of Council of Huejotzingo to the King” is a generation after the conquest written by the nobility of a native city-state that sided with the Spanish as they invaded the Aztec…)
c) Analyze the primary source- interrogate it, ask questions about it. Then tell us all of the ways this source is valuable for our understanding of the Americas. Primary sources are very important for us, but as students as History, we know we can’t take everything they say at full face value. Why not? Question the text (source). Analyze the language, the tone, the message-can you identify assumptions? Biases? Assumptions matter (as we see in the religious documents, for example). If we only read primary sources like this one, do we get the full picture?If not, what other kind of primary sources do we need to consult to have a fuller understanding of the topic/era? Tell us all of the ways this primary source is important for our understanding of the history of the Americas
Length of Part II: One to two substantial paragraphs with specific examples
Total length for both parts of your original essay: three to four substantial paragraphs with specific examples.
