"The Broken Spears": The Aztec Account of the Conquest of Mexico
[ send me this paper ]
A 6 page overview of Miguel Leon Portilla's "The Broken Spears : The Aztec Account of the Conquest of Mexico". Reveals that this book differs from typical accounts of the conquest of Mexico in that it is one of the few accounts which is presented from the aspect of the indigenous peoples who lived there rather than from the perspective of the European marauders who invaded their lands and killed their peoples. Examines the question of why the Spanish were able to conquer the Aztec. Suggests that this accomplishment is not just due to technological superiority but also to Spanish mindset. The Spanish conquered the Aztec by destroying their culture and exposing them to the ravages of disease. No additional sources are listed.

Women in Colonial Latin America
[ send me this paper ]
a 6 page research paper which examines the role of women in colonial Latin America. The colonial world of Latin America was intrinsically different from that of North America and this difference had a tremendous impact on the women of Latin America at that time. Although North America was rich in natural resources, the natives of North America did not have the gold of the Incas or the Aztecs. Consequently, the Europeans that came to North America's shores came to colonize-they brought women with them. Those early Europeans, specifically the Spanish, that came to Latin America did so solely for the purposes of exploitation, not for colonization. Because of this, the Spanish conquerors typically did not bring women with them from Europe. The writer argues that the native women in colonial Latin America were viewed by Europeans as simply one more resources that they could exploit. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Sherman Alexie’s “Reservation Blues”
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing Sherman Alexie’s novel taking a far different tack on the native American reservation view of outside society. Reservation Blues contains condemnation of social issues as they stand, but Alexie’s talent prevents his work from being a novelized version of a lecture directed at evil whites busily subjugating Alexie and his people to their will. The book is highly readable while also being thought-provoking in its social commentary that, at times, can be stinging. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Filename: ResBlues.wps

Imagination
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing the use of imagination in the book titled, 'The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight in Heaven,' by Sherman Alexie. This book, filled with many hard-hitting and often humorous stories, uses imagination in many ways. On the surface the use of imagination is obviously used in light of the fact that Native Americans are often considered to be highly imaginative individuals. But beyond the surface lies some very real pain and suffering that can only be escaped from through the use of imagination on the part of the story's creator as well as the story's characters. No additional sources cited.
