Warm-up for 08.29.11 Which of the following describes the main purpose of Spanish missions located along the coast of Georgia? • To convert natives to Christianity (Catholicism) • To exploit the area for gold and riches • To instruct Natives on how they should behave as Catholics • To enlist Natives to help the Spanish build new settlements and to be soldiers whop would defend Spanish interests.
Many examples of violence between Spanish and Natives for the first 100 years of Spanish missions. 1597 - Juanillo’s Rebellion – a Guale Indian who was set to be “mico chief” was not given the job because Friar Pedro Corpa did not approve of Juanillo as a leader. Where there any examples of violence between the Spanish and Natives? Well...Juanillo killed him!
And this led to a massive revolt called "Juanillo's Rebellion." We’ll read about it tomorrow!
Where in Georgia were they? Leading mission 1st ALONG THE COAST OF GEORGIA
Send in Pedro Menendez de Avilles!!! 1565 - Menendez established the city of St. Augustine (the oldest permanent city in the United States!) 1566 - Menendez made a trip up Georgia’s coast, landed on the island of St. Catherines, & found an old Indian chief named Guale (pronounced "Wallie") with whom he made friends. How did the Spanish attempt to solve the “French problem”?
