European Impact on Latin America
Transcript of European Impact on Latin America
Columbian Exchange Tobacco was actually used as Currency (System of money) in some Countries. Did You Know? Location When the Europeans came to Latin America they started exporting the raw goods back to Europe. They developed a transportation system that only supported the idea of exporting these goods out of the country. They did nothing about the raw goods brought from one place to another inside the continent. This left a continent that had no internal railroads, but rather a transportation system that relied only on export instead of working towards self-reliance for the Latin American people. When Europeans came to Latin America they found many different types of civilizations. There were a few nomadic type tribes. They found some regions that formed spectacular cities. One example is the Aztecs. The Aztecs had a social structure that was well organized at the top they had the Noble Gentlemen and the Priests followed by the warriors and merchants. Below them were the farmers and then the slaves. The Mayans did not have a single ruler over them instead, but each city was governed by itself and had its own leader. They were known for their arithmetic, astrology, hieroglyphics, and their calendar which ends this year. The Incas did not keep written records, but because of their architecture we know that they had a complex writing system and a highly organized civilization with social structures, economic and political systems.
