Europeans Perceptions of Native Americans
Your first case study paper comes from a set of primary sources entitled “Illustrating the New World” assembled by the National Humanities Center. The case study begins with a secondary source introduction and then links to 27 images from English and French Explorers. Your task is not to necessarily learn about how Native Americans ACTUALLY lived in the past, but to learn about what were Europeans PERCEPTIONS of Native Americans. The perceptions groups had of each other often had a greater impact on their relations than reality. http://nationalhumanitiescenter.org/pds/amerbegin/contact/text3/text3read.htm It is your responsibility to review the case study and complete a short 2-3 page paper discussing how Europeans PERCEIVED Native Americans.
