Columbus and his Expeditions Columbus the Indians and human progress is an article written by Howard Zinn I found the article from A Peoples History of the United States Howard Zinn claims to show a series of controversial facts about Christopher Columbus and the Native Amercians to prove that Columbus forcefully took the Arawak Indians as slaves and took advantage of their assets to only become famous Howard Zinn states the main historical facts of Christopher Columbuss Pinta Nina and Santa Maria that landed in the Bahamas on 1492 That was when Europeans and Native Americans first came into contact the Arawak people came out to greet the Europeans but the Europeans were only interested in finding gold Making the Arawaks slaves was Columbuss first plan as soon as he figured out they were impotent After searching far beyond the gold was still not found and a lot of the Arawak people were killed for not finding anything of what Columbus was looking for After Columbus came Bartolome he participated in the conquest of Cuba but gave up and became a critic Bartolome wanted to swap the Arawak people to black slaves because he thought they were stronger and better workers Among the evidence that Zinn cites about the Arawak slaves are that the Arawaks were dying in the millions from 8 million to less than a million The greed and findings by Christopher Columbuss expeditions led to the massacre deception and brutality of the Arawak people All that for the need of space land and most of all GREED Howard Zinn thinks that we should believe about what Christopher Columbus did to those slaves to become famous Second of all Zinn is not really being agreeable toward Columbus and his actions toward fame and power The fact that he made it incredibly understandable to anyone who read the article that Columbus took the American Arawak people as slaves took advantage of their hospitality
