Cultural impact
Indigenous peoples (Native Americans)
Main articles: Indigenous peoples of the Americas and Native Americans in the United States

The cultures and populations of the indigenous peoples of the Americas were changed by the Spanish assumption and colonization of their lands.

Before the arrival of Columbus, in Hispaniola the indigenous Taíno pre-contact population of several hundred thousand declined to sixty thousand by 1509. Although population estimates vary, Father Bartolomé de las Casas, the “Defender of the Indians” estimated there were 6 million (6,000,000) Taíno and Arawak in the Caribbean at the time of Columbus’s arrival in 1492.[citation needed]

The population of the Native Amerindian population in Mexico declined by an estimated 90% (reduced to 1 – 2.5 million people) by the early 17th century. In Peru the indigenous Amerindian pre-contact population of around 6.5 million declined to 1 million by the early 17th century.[citation needed]

Of the history of the indigenous population of California, Sherburne F. Cook (1896–1974) was the most painstakingly careful researcher. From decades of research he made estimates for the pre-contact population and the history of demographic decline during the Spanish and post Spanish periods. According to Cook, the indigenous Californian population at first contact, in 1769, was about 310,000 and had dropped to 25,000 by 1910. The vast majority of the decline happened during the Mexican and U.S.A periods of Californian history (1821–1910), with the most dramatic collapse (200,000 to 25,000) occurring in the U.S.A period (1846–1910).[8][9][10]
Missionary effort
Main article: Spanish missions in the Americas

The Spaniards were committed, by Vatican decree, to convert their New World indigenous subjects to Catholicism. However, often initial efforts were questionably successful, as the indigenous people added Catholicism into their longstanding traditional ceremonies and beliefs. The many native expressions, forms, practices, and items of art could be considered idolatry and prohibited or destroyed by Spanish missionaries, military, and civilians. This included religious items, sculptures, and jewelry made of gold or silver, which were melted down before shipment to Spain.

Though the Spanish did not impose their language to the extent they did their religion, some indigenous languages of the Americas evolved into replacement with Spanish, and lost to present day tribal members. When more efficient they did evangelize in native languages. Introduced writing systems to the Quechua, Nahuatl and Guarani peoples may have contributed to their expansion.

i got this info from wikipedia hope i helped :))

Help with identifying this that I found of my grandmothers….(native american)?

Question by Amie: Help with identifying this that I found of my grandmothers….(native american)?
Hello, I am tracing my Native American ancestry on my moms side of the family. I have a rich cherokee and choctaw ancestry from my dads side of the family who are all from Oklahoma. But I have heard [unconfirmed] that my grandmother was Native as well. She passed years ago….She was born in Oneida New York. …Anyway, I was going through some of her jewelry and I found this…

http://i40.tinypic.com/rr4744.jpg

I looked stuff up and found out about a turtle clan of Mohawk natives within the Iroquois confederacy.

Can anyone please help me to identify this?

Thanks 🙂
Also, it’s pretty big. It takes up the palm of my hand..

Best answer:

Answer by Kanien:kaha’ka-[]-[]-^-[]-[]
Its simply a necklace of a turtle. there is no single representation used for clans. having this doesn’t mean your grandmother was native since anyone can purchase this and others like it. turtle clan is in all of the Iroquois nations as well.

the ONLY way to know if your grandmother was native is to find her name on the tribal rolls. if she was not enrolled, she wasn’t native. The same goes for all native nations. ALL natives are/were enrolled in one Nation or another.

Answer by scotty5521
you could either wear a nice pair of jeans & a shirt with like a belt? to dress it up more add a waist belt instead of the usual one that sits on your hips & some heels. Or you could wear a skirt (maybe with dark tights since its cold/winter now!) and a nice top? or boots of you have a nice leather pair!

Too make it more casual take out the tights/heels etc. or change your jewellery to like rustic gold/tribal instead of silver or gold ‘bling’. your hair can also change an outfit… for exampe lessu ruffled curls can make it more casual while a bun or wearing a hairband in a sleek style can make it more dressy.

You could also ask your mum/whoever else is going what they are wearing. It doesnt hurt to ask & at least then youll have a benchmark!

have a nice meaaal! 🙂

Q&A: Summer look.?.?

Question by *~Brutally honest~*: Summer look.?.?
can anyone send me somw pictures of what will be in style this summer, nothing super expensive plz!

Send ur ideas 2 me @

synchro94@yahoo.ca

Something sporty I am into synchronized swiming and I will be working as an Assistant Lifeguard. I am only 14 so something decent.

Thanx!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Annie
This spring/summer is all about:
Black and White
Vibrant Snakeskin
Neutral leather
Brights
Graphic Jewelry
Ombre (Getting darker at bottom or top, getting ligthter as moving horizontally)
Art prints
Tribal
Pastel eyeshadow
Satin Skin
Coral lips
Neutral nails
Tousled hair
Loose Ponytails and Pigtails
Disco Glam
Safari
Color Block
Gladiators
Full dresses and skirts
Awesome shoes& accessories
Fun bags

As a lifeguard, I would just get a pair of board shorts from Target or Wal-Mart, (you can buy boys ones that look cute) because they’re decent and cute. Then pair them with a top (any kind you want). They are decent and cute. I don’t know if you want something a little more flexible or something, but I suggest getting shorter board shorts in that case, you can find some cute Roxy ones for like $ 5.00 at TJ Max. (I went there Thrusday).

Good luck and have fun!

Sorry I didn’t send pics.

Oh they have swimshorts at www.aeropostale.com or www.pacsun.com

what colours/trends are going to be in for autumn and winter?

Question by Cramp: what colours/trends are going to be in for autumn and winter?

Best answer:

Answer by Tiffany Monique
Hi Im Tiffany a buyer for a virtual boutique and Id love to help you (please search & like Mz. Conversation Piece to get accessory tips and ask Mz. CP). The summer color pop trend will cool down as the seasons change…flesh tones, creams, beiges and cooler oranges and browns will be the trend. Get in touch with your inner romantic bc vintage gold/silvers, and pearls will be popular. 70’s and 80’s jewelry (collars, studs, door knockers, geometric shapes and cuffs etc), tribal pieces /etchings are coming back into fashion as well.
