How did the Spanish and French differ in their treatment of American Indians? The Spanish forced American Indians to convert to Christianity while the French built relationships with them. The French arrived in large numbers, while the Spanish arrived in small numbers. The French were dependent on the fur trade, while the Spanish were dependent on the sugar trade. The Spanish built relationships with American Indians, while the French forced their culture onto them.

    I remember that both the Spanish and French traded with the Native Americans, so it's probably C. The French did trade furs and such. The Spanish built churches along the west coast of America, but they never forcefully converted the Native Americans... So yeah. Probably C.

    The French were pretty chill with the NA, remember studying the French and Indian war? The French and NA fought together in that. There wasn't any hostility between them.
