French; wealth; exploring, fur trading, and fighting wars to dominate North America. b. English; wealth and religious freedom; searching for gold, farming tobacco, creating model communities (colonizing), and fighting wars to dominate North America. c. Dutch; wealth and religious freedom; exploring, fur trading, building trading posts, colonizing, farming tobacco and sugar.
Research responses:

1. The Native Americans need more land than European colonists because they hunted and fished.

2. Native American and European views of land ownership are:

A. Europeans: Land belonged to those who bought or claimed it.

B. Native Americans: No one owned the land.

C. Europeans: Treaties were permanent deals.

D. Native Americans: Treaties were temporary agreements made in exchange for gifts.

3. The Puritans viewed Native Americans as people without a faith and in need of religion.

Native Americans resisted conversion attempts because they had their own beliefs.

4. War between the two groups started when irreconcilable differences over values, culture, and lifestyles led to conflict.

CHAPTER

4.2 World History Researching Practice ContrastingInformation

Contrasting means looking for differences between events, places, institutions, ideas, or people. In this section you read about conflicts between Native Americans and English settlers. By contrasting Native American views with those held by Europeans, you can begin to understand some of the reasons for these conflicts. Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.

Disputes Over Land and Religion

Disputes between the Puritans and Native Americans arose over two issues—land and religion. For every acre a colonial farmer needed to support life, a Native American needed 20 for hunting, fishing, and agriculture. To Native Americans, no one owned the land—it was there for everyone to use. Native Americans saw land treaties with Europeans as mere agreements in which they received gifts— blankets,

guns, iron tools, or whatever—to share the land for a limited time. Europeans, however, saw the treaties as a one-time deal in which Native Americans permanently sold their land to new owners.

Similar misunderstandings existed over religion. Puritans considered Native Americans heathens— people without a faith. At first, Puritans tried earnestly to convert them, which many Native

Americans resisted. Over time as hostility between the two groups grew, many Puritans tended to view

the Native Americans as agents of the devil who presented a constant threat to their godly society.

Rather than convert the Native Americans, the New England colonists set out to remove or destroy

native societies. For their part, Native Americans developed a similarly hard view toward the white invaders.

1. Why did the Native Americans need more land than European colonists?

2. How did Native American and European views of land ownership differ?

2. How did these differences affect how both groups viewed land treaties?


3. Why were the Puritans at first so interested in converting the Native Americans?

2. How did Native Americans react to attempts to convert them



4. What differences would you say finally led to war between the two groups?
