    The European colonization of the Americas forever changed the lives, bloodlines and cultures of the peoples of the continent. The population history of American indigenous peoples postulates that disease exposure, displacement, and warfare diminished populations, with the first the most significant cause. The first indigenous group encountered by Columbus were the Tainos of Hispaniola who were the dominant culture in the Greater Antilles and The Bahamas. In thirty years, about 70% of the Tainos died. Enslaved, forced to labor in the mines, mistreated, the Tainos began to adopt suicidal behaviors, with women aborting or killing their infants, men jumping from the cliffs or ingesting manioc, a violent poison. They had no immunity to European diseases, so outbreaks of measles and smallpox ravaged their population. I hope this helps you out

    The Europeans enslaved the NAtive Americans, and treated them badly. The Native Americans has to work in mines to search for gold. The Europeans also spread smallpox which the NAtive Americans didn't have anything to be treated with. HOw is that?
