In my essay I compare and contrast the different ideas of de Vaca and Handsome Lake about Christianity Both of them used Christianity in their writings as an element however they had different viewpoints on it De Vaca used it to treat people in a bad way like he sees them as miserable people but Handsome Lake used it to treat people Indians in a better way And I will try to prove these things in my essay De Vaca behaved toward Indians very badly When we read his text about Relation of Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca we can clearly understand his bad pattern of behavior and also we understand that he was always in war with Indians The Christians destroyed the Indians land and burned their houses He thought that this war was necessary Through the mercy of God the wind did not blow from the north in all this time otherwise I should have died He believes in Christianity and he has strong religious beliefs First of all he believes in God and he is thankful to Christianity and the protection of people by God in every conditions He unfortunately thought that only with Christianity that things would reach in its best In the book we can easily see that he saved all tribe from death He prevented one tribes extinction from illness He said that they could be Christians but he claimed that Indians had a very little heart and bad luck because of their nationality For example if any one chance to fall sick in the desert and cannot keep up with the rest the Indians leave him to perish unless it be a son or a brother I think their bad luck comes from their customs We can see their bad luck brings them the illness They have little hearts because they do not know anything about Christian religion They are credulous people Cabeza
