Hispanic History By: Sabrina Cavaliere, Alyssa Velez A Hispanic Exploration “I assure your Highnesses that these lands are the
most fertile, temperate, level and beautiful countries
in the world.”

This was said by Christopher Columbus.

Christopher Columbus found out America when he was going to China. He was going to China for their spices. He went to take a short cut and he found a new place. He named it the New world. He sailed to the place we now know as Florida. He did not know people were living there he thought no one was living in the New World. They were called the Native Americans. In the time of exploration European countries
explored new lands for political, religious and
economic reasons. Portugal spent most of the 15th century searching for a path to Asia by sailing south of Africa.Portugal became very wealthy of knowledge about navagation and geography of the Atlantic Ocean. Maps created during this time illustrate
a Medieval world view laid out into three continents,but also record real and imagined countries. This is an example of one of these maps. The title of this map is Mapa, que comprende la Frontera, de los Dominios del Rey, en la America Septentrional. Translated into english is Maps, covering the border of the king’s dominios in North America. This is a painting of the First Voyage This is about Christopher Columbus arivale to the New World. This is some information of the recording of the song

This is the website Here is another way that that people honor The Hispanic History. This is an example of one of the banners & the dates. This is a inscripion rock.
The inscription rock was carved by Don Juan de Oñate. He wrote" Pasó por aqui, el adelantado Don Juan de Oñate del descubrimiento de la mar del sur a 16 de Abril de 1605."In english that is"Passed by here, the adelantado Don Juan de Oñate from the discovery of the sea of the south the 16th of April of 1605."

This is a Oñate's inscription.
Don Juan de Oñate y Salazar (1550-1626) was a Spanish explorer. He colonial governor of the New Spain province of New Mexico and founder of various settlements in the present day Southwest of the United States. This is the grand Canyon.
Many people have died in the Grand Canyon.
One man died when his truck crashed into a tree and he died. Here is a piece of art work. In 1507, Martin Waldseemüller, a German cartographer,
created that map that first showed the area
of Columbus’s discovery. Waldseemüller named this
new land “America” in honor of Amerigo Vespucci, who
recognized that a “New World” had been reached
through Columbus’s voyage. Basically he is saying " I was here". The Huexotzinco Codex is an eight-sheet document on amatl, a pre- European paper made in Mesoamerica.It is part of the testimony in a legal case against representatives of the colonial government in Mexico, ten years after the Spanish conquest in 1521.
