    Columbus spread goodwill toward native peoples and shared his goods with them. Columbus helped native peoples wherever he went and learned about their ways of life. Columbus was cruel to native peoples and exploited their natural resources. Columbus forced all native peoples into slavery and brought loads of riches back to Spain.

    Well Columbus himself wasn't cruel to Native Americans he did indirectly cause genocide but it wasn't on purpose

    first, let's remember that columbus was not a hero and that he did horrible things. he forced millions of people out of their homeland. with this information what answers can you eliminate?

    He did do that but he personally did not treat them poorly it was the people that came after him that really mucked things up

    columbus personally captured slaves, was a slave trader, and stole from native american. whether he directly or indirectly led to a genocide, i think it still makes him a pretty bad guy. @TynishaBright which ones can you eliminate
