Christopher Columbus went to the carabian islands go to google and search the map of his first journey and it shows you the route and the name of the places that he went.. By: Ivan & Carlos :)
Treated the natives poorly, most likely as slaves. Also bringing diseases to them that killed them.
Columbus called them Indians (incorrectly) because he thought hewas in India. Calling a native American an Indian can be derogatoryor perceived as an insult. Best to call them by their tribe name orby their given name.
Yes he did call native Americans "Indians". The reason is because he planned to sail west to the Indies but as he traveled west he found the U.S not the Indies
The first land/island Christopher Columbus saw was San Salvador. That is the answer to that question. GOOD LUCK!
thats a good question. but i was told that he helped the indians get ready for thanksgiving after he arrived in what was called the "new world"
yes christopher colubus met the native americans when he landed on america andyes i am a forth grader i know this trust meeeeeeeeee
As far as we know, the Native Indians were the first people to ever live in America. If anyone sailed to America before, we may never know. But as far as facts and history tells us, yes, Christopher Columbus was the first person (or European) to ever sail to the Americas..
No, Christopher Columbus was not there at the first thanksgiving. The celebration was between the Native Americans and the Spainanrds for the celebration of their first harvesting!
Guanahani Island --- in the now Bahammas. Most historians have agreed on Guanahani Island which today is known as Watlings Island in the Bahammas.
There is no evidence that Columbus killed any personally however he was ordered to kill any necessery that where in hi way, He also did enslave many
The goal for the first voyage of Christopher Columbus was to reach the West Indies.
Yes, in the West Indies; he never landed on the US mainland - although he thought they were Japanese.
Christopher Columbus first landed in the Bahamas in what he called San Salvador. The true location is unknown to this day, but may have been the modern San Salvador, Samana Cay, or the Plana Cays.
Horrible! He was responsible for the deaths of thousands of them, he spread diseases which wasn't exactly intentional so u cant count that, but he murdered a ton of them and paraded their dismembered bodies around and he burned children and he raped the women too. I'm not kidding my teacher told us …this. They tried to stand up for themselves first but that didn't exactly work out and he took a ton of them into slavery as well. ( Full Answer )
yes and for proof that he had made it to what he thought was asia.
We have no idea. We are lucky to know who his wife was and considering the age he was from he most likely didn't have a "girlfriend." They didn't date in the 1400's. People in his high class made arranged marriages.
He went to ONE PLACE. A island called Hispanolia. He NEVER LANDED IN NORTH AMERICA. NEVER KNEW THAT IT EXISTED.
Henry Hudson never met Columbus, for Columbus died on May 20, 1506. At that time Henry Hudson wasn't even born.
He was only at sea 32 days and took dried beef, dried peas, and hard tack with him.
No, that is part of a very sad movement to discredit and revise history. He did not kill "lots" of Indians.
The first island discovered by Christopher Columbus was the Bahamas, which he called El Salvador or San Salvador. ;DDDDDDD
No way! The Indians HATE him. Columbus day is like the day they cry for their ancestors. Columbus cut their heads off with their brains tied to it. It's just wrong. Indians and Columbus DO NOT mix.
He was looking for a new trade route to India/China/Japan. He knew the earth is spherical, so he went to the west to reach Asia. When he dscovered new land, he thought he was in India, that's why he called the people he found Indians.
He called them Indians because he thought that when he came to the Bahama's which he named san salvador he actually thought that he was in the indies.
No he didn't. He just wanted to claim all of their land for Spain. YES, he did. There is overwhelming evidence (including Columbus' own correspondence) which documents his torture, rape, enslavement, and mass murder of Native Americans during the Spanish American conquest. For more information, re…ad the book "Lies My Teacher Told Me (Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong" by James W. Loewen. ( Full Answer )
Columbus never landed in Canada. He made 4 voyages to the new world or the western hemisphere. He landed on what would later become the island of Cuba, the Island containing Haiti/Dominican republic, several Islands in the Lesser Antilles, as well as the future coasts of Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama,… Colombia and Venezuela. ( Full Answer )
I think Christopher Colmbus had a translator or something because I read a book called Pedro's Journal and I think I remember seeing that he had a translator or something like that with him.
The Caribbean islands the first voyage of Christopher Columbus landed-in the present day area of the Bahamas this island areas is in the Caribbean.
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain paid for his trip. They said no the first time then Columbus persuaded them to. They said yes the second time. Christopher Columbus' son was named after King Ferdinand.
It depends on which of the three ships that he brought with him on his first trip. The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
Yes. He made several trips to the americas. The first of which led him to what is present day cuba and he later made it to central america. However, he did not make it to the area now known as the U.S. side note, the proper term is Native American. American Indians don't exist. "indian" is a term… mistakenly used for native Americans because Columbus thought he was in India. ( Full Answer )
There are a lot of arguments about where Columbus landed first. It was for sure an island near San Salvador and Cuba, though.
Many people think that in history, Christopher Columbus was America's first discoverer. Others think that there was someone else that had discovered America before Christopher Columbus. The might not ever know who discovered America first.
His intended destination was the area of the East Indies, a series of islands in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of the mainland of Asia. The indigenous people there were dark of skin and has cultures similar to those people found in the West Indies which is where Columbus made land fall. There fore… his wishes to have completed his goal coupled with his misconception of the size of the planet caused a incorrect identification of his location on the planet. ( Full Answer )

well i know he first sailed to the Canary Islands, owned by Castile, where he reprovisioned and made repairs.
To sail from Spain to Japan by going west instead of east. (He had "calculated" that the trip would be in the neighborhood of 3000 to 4000 miles. He had a lot of bad data.)
yes, Columbus set sail for the first time in 1492, with the Pinta,the Nina and the Santa Maria (flagship)
