In A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies, Bartolomé de Las Casas vividly describes the brutality wrought on the natives in the Americas by the Europeans primarily for the purpose of proclaiming and spreading the Christian faith. Las Casas originally intended this account to reach the royal administration of Spain; however, it soon found its way into the hands of many international readers, especially after translation. Bartolomé de Las Casas illustrates an extremely graphic and grim reality to his readers using literary methods such as characterization, imagery, amplification, authorial intrusion and the invocation of providence while trying to appeal to the sympathies of his audience about such atrocities.

Their menu consisted of classic Mexican dishes such as chips and salsa or guacamole, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, soups, and much more. They also served Mexican style breakfast food which I have not seen before which I found very interesting. In addition to a colorful menu of food, they

Geronimo was born in June 1829 in No-Doyohn Canyon, Mexico, that today is near Clifton, Arizona into the Bedonkohe Apache tribe. Having had viewed the Geronimo video, it is apparent that he was a hero to some for being determined to be free at all costs. It is also fair to say that many of his own Apache tribe feels to this day, that he alone is the reason the Apache lost their homeland and caused so many to die. Personally, I find him to be a man who looked up to his Leaders and became a product of his environment. According to the film, Geronimo was raised to believe that it was common practice to raid and steal food what ever you wanted as a young man. Considered a naturally gifted hunter, Geronimo was as a boy who swallowed the heart of his first kill in order to ensure a life of successful hunter. Around the age of seven-teen, Geronimo fell in love with a woman named Alope. The two married and had three children together. While out on a trading trip, Mexican fighters attacked his camp. Quietly that night, Geronimo returned home, where he found his mother, wife and three children all dead. After, finding his entire family murdered, was the turning point where Geronimo went from being a simple horse thief leader of his tribe to a vicious warrior with the life long intention of killing anyone who

As little kids one of the few lessons that we first learn is about knowing the difference between our rights and our wrongs. Little did we know that was the introduction to becoming a person of morality. To be moral is defined as the principles and beliefs of someone’s behavior concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do. This was exhibited in the story of Bartolome de la Casas, A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indes. Many historians characterized De las Casa as a moral person because of his deliberation of the invation of the Indians.
