The Interview by Evan
Interview with the leader of the Hanis Tribe:
EP: I'm here with the leader of the Hanis Tribe.
Evan Peek: So what is your feelings on the new explorers coming to your land?
Leader: They take my land and my food and expect us to follow all their commands. It is remarkable how they think we are the foreigners.
EP: What would you say to them if you spoke their language?
Leader: I would tell them to stop treating us like slaves we are warriors.
EP: What is the biggest struggle of having the explorers here?
Leader: Taking the food that we need to feed our young tribal children.
EP: Is there any food supply left for the children?
Leader: What's left is only grain how are they supposed to grow if the meat is all being taking by the Spanish explorers.
EP: What has been the worst problem so far with the new inhabitants?
Leader: The worst definitely has to be the fact that they are taking over our land, not just our areas of sleep but mainly the food. They feel they are just entitled to it.
EP: What is your daily experiences like?
Leader: Well we struggle everyday with growing crops especially in portions of time where there is a drought.
EP: What is the most difficult part of not being in a stabilized government and having to lead yourselves on people of this new land?
Leader: I think the fact that we have people who have ranks is sort of like a government.
EP: Would you ever consider forming a government that the explorers abide by?
Leader: No because our people work hard to get what they have and we don't need to establish a government where we will become wealthy and believe we are better then all humanity.
EP: Well thank you very much and hope things get better, see you soon.
Leader: Thank You.

Travel by Ben
The Age of Exploration was dawning. Countries began to sponsor explorers to find and claim land, or to find new trading roots. This was the case for Portugal. Prince Henry led the charge, finding Madeira, the Azores, and then moving down the coast to map Africa. When Prince Henry died, Vasco de Gama picked up where Henry left off and rounded the Cape Of Good Hope, or the southern most tip of Africa. He made his way to india, and then realized the money that could be made using this trade route. Soon Portugal and other European countries began to benefit from this trade route. Soon, Christopher Columbus began his journey to find a direct trade route to India, going west. However, he found the Americas. Ferdinand Magellan commanded the first crew to circumnavigate the world. He died along the way, but one boat actually did circumnavigate the world. Going back to the Portuguese; they wished to dominate the trade routes to Asia, so they set up forts along the African coast. The Dutch, however, established the first permanent settlement in Africa, called Cape Town. They then set up the Dutch East India Company, which managed trade with full sovereign power. Trade with china picked up among the Portuguese, but china didn't thought their goods lacked quality so all china wanted was gold and silver. Missionaries spread to Japan, preaching the Christian faith. At first they were welcomed, but distrust began to spread. Christians were beginning to be persecuted, and then the Japanese killed many of them. This started a 200 year period of isolation for the Japanese.
