Essay Question: How successful was las Casas at stopping the mistreatment of Native Americans?

These are some questions you should ask yourself:
Was he successful in the short term? The long term?
How do you measure success as it relates to the question?
Can success vary by region of the Americas?

Essays should begin with an introduction that contains general information about the topic. Your thesis statement should be one to two sentences at the end of your introduction or it can be a small stand-alone paragraph after the introduction. While it may seem difficult, remember, not only should you have enough evidence, you also can write about how you feel about the evidence and what you think the evidence implies.

You main source of information is an excerpt from “A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies” by Bartolomé de las Casas.

These questions should help you gather information from that primary source document.

1.What does las Casas’s account tell us about the Spanish invasion of the New World? How does he describe the native people, and how does he describe his Spanish countrymen?

2.What are his primary concerns about the destruction of Native Americans; for example, how did religion and his desire to save all these new souls shape his arguments about their character and treatment?

3.How does this narrative contribute to our understanding about the role and significance of violence in the history of North America? Is there anything you found particularly surprising or interesting about his narrative?

Be sure to base your answer on concrete examples, specific details, and quotes from the document.

You should gather relevant data besides this primary source to enhance your argument. You can search Las Casas biography, the jobs that Native Americans were performing, other early abolitionists, etc. I would say have 3 to 4 sources other than the primary source. Here is a link of a sample source that you could use:
