Example text

As a way of continuing to extract value from the natives, he sent several hundred to Europe as slaves. To placate the gold-starved settlers on the island, he distributed most of the remaining prisoners to them as a form of bounty. As was to be the case throughout the region, the original Americans would be enslaved outright or divided among the European settlers who took their land and then forced them to contribute their labor to the Early History 29 new European enterprise. The original inhabitants of Hispaniola declined rapidly because of disease and the harsh treatment handed out by the Europeans.

The wealth from looted native cities and civilizations was shared among the members of the conquering military bands. Encomiendas and titles were handed out later but usually just to the captains and leaders. Cortes, for instance, proved to be as successful in business as he was in the conquest.
