History notes that relations between them were "Strained." I guess this could best be described by "The Indian Massacre of 1622" where the Natives killed 347 colonist for: * Invading their lands, * Burning their homes and crops, * Attempting to take the land by force, * Lying to the natives saying they were "only there to trade not to take the land", * Inviting them to 'dances' and then murdering them * Refusing to follow the law of the land when they came there (a close analogy of the current immigration population these same descendants now complain about with "Mexicans"). The colonists responded by proposing a "Truce" with the tribe, and gave them poisoned wine which killed 200, they had to strangle the other 50 who didn't drink the wine.

The honey bee was brought to America, from England, in 1622 The first bees were brought to Jamestown. The bees quickly went wild. By the end of the 18th century, Native Americans viewed the honey bee (called English flies) as harbingers of colonial expansion.

The conquistadors viewed the Native Americans as dirty people who needed to be established in a church. That is why they brought christianity. If they didnt want to be crucified then they were tortured until they agreed...

If you are talking about India, homosexuality is considered taboo or a sin in most cultures. If you are talking about Native Americans, at one time, gay people were honored and viewed as holy or spiritual. But today, many Native Americans follow the views of the Christian denomination they belong to.

They both sold their people to the white people as slaves, they had no rights and were viewed as property and were poor treated.

The Europeans thought that the Native Americans were savages because of their dress, darker skin, and simpler lifestyles. They were also viewed as honest even though they were not Christians.

Colonists, such as the European people who colonised the American continent, believed they had the right to settle in those lands because they were "unclaimed" by anyone else (e.g. not part of another European state). Generally speaking they did not recognise any native American countries and also considered it a divine obligation to impose the Christian religion on the "uncivilized" and "pagan" native people of America who would otherwise live damned lives of ignorance and barbarity. Of course, viewed with modern morality, the colonists had no "right" to take other peoples lands.

When colonists was fewest, relationships were based on trade, and the Indians viewed the Europeans as allies and things were good Where European numbers were greatest and their primary objective was Indian land or labor, relations were least friendly.

You call her a woman! The term squaw is a terrible word that came about because of the differences between how the European settlers viewed women and how the native community viewed women. Today, in the native community, it means slut or whore.
