The Spanish killing Indigenous people.

I think they lost to the spanish becuase they were over powered. Another reason is because they were not enough strong people.

I’m not sure but i think that the indigenous people lost to the Spanish because the Spanish had weapons, so that was one of the reasons even though the indigenous people had more people in there colonies but the weapons were more powerful.

The Indigenous people was not as prepared as the Spanish so it was pretty hard for them. The Spanish had weapon and they were in the mind set to kill all Indigenous people.

I think that the Indigenous people lost because they were probably tricked, or they were probably scared of the weapons the Spanish had.

I believe the Indigenous lost because I think the Spanish had more weapons and even though they had lesser people they still managed to win because they probably worked harder than the Indigenous did.

I think the indigenous people lost to the spanish becouse the spanish had better weapons such as guns and other powerful explosives. while indigenous people only had rocks,sticks, and other useless thing compared to the spanish. also the spanish had brought small pox wich quickly killed indigenous people.

I THINK IT SHOULD BE LEGAL BECAUSE THE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SEE THE STREETS NOT THE PEOPLE THERE!THEY JUST WANT TO GET THERE WAY AROUND!THAT IS WHAT THE INTERNET FOR!TO GET HELP AND INFORMATION!

  burrell wrote @

I think it should be legal because its not mean tot invade anyone privacy but if u get caught doing something bad. Think I the person should be help accountable

  yasvet wrote @

no because you could get away with it..

  MAGALI wrote @

Well im kind of in betwwen on my opinion because it is violating peoples privace but if there were a crime committed the oficial would be able to find who it is very easy so i am mutal about this.

  jessica wrote @

yes it should be legal.some people like to get directions to where they are going but.like what if they wanted to buy a house they could just look for it online at google map .com.now they just saw the new house they want to buy.but on the other hand people invade your privatecy.or a killer can be looking up your house and the street you live on.

  savonnah kendra riley wrote @

i think that its very personal. No one should be taken advantaged of for any thing whether they say yes or no or even of they dont say any thing at all. For any thing that man could have been doing something embarrassing and personal, he probaly thought that he can get away with it and he shouldnt be photographed if they didnt want to.

  burrell wrote @

They didn’t do the work themselves because they probably thought they could make money if they sold and bought slaves.

  robert nelson wrote @

the reson thay did not do it them selves is becaus thay had better thing to do.

  cindy palacios wrote @

I think beacuse they want to show who was the BOSS.

  shelley young wrote @

indigenous people lost the battle because the spanish knew how to conquer and divide their chiefs with tactics similar to our current adminstration- lies, trinkets in exchange for slaves and gold, and diseases the indigenous people had no immunity for- they arrived in the americas with over a million people- in one year alone they desimated the population
