There are 3 Answers! Be sure to get them all.AnswerAfricans were immune to the conditions and diseases. It was because the africans were already in contact with the europeans when they had started trading with one another. Europeans felt they could indur the climate because of their skin color. Many Native Americans started to die off because of the diseases. Alot of the native Americans also started to escape,fight back, and many of them died off. They also felt that Africans were cheaper. AnswerThe Native Americans were less resistant to the diseases that the Europeans brought over. The Portuguese and other sailors had already made the selling of African slaves an established trade. In North America, the settlers initially weren't in a position to take Native Americans as slaves because they lived a precarious existence that needed to be at peace with the Natives to continue. AnswerThere were more Africans available and the Europeans found it more pracitcal to buy Africans from Africans than to attempt to capture "Native Americans."

What were the relationship between Native Americans and African Americans in the West during the Civil War and Reconstruction?

from ƝɨѕhҠѡe on yahoo answers:In the 1800's -1900's there was little understanding between Native Americans and African Americans.Firstly because generally Native Americans were an unknown population just as they are today, and African Americans were not able to freely form friendships/relationships with people outside their local area/residence. So basically they had very little contact.Secondly anywhere the 3 populations (Black, White and Native) were in close proximity, the White settlers tried to create friction between the Blacks and the Natives.For example in some areas (southern coastal US) Native Americans where paid to recapture runaway slaves. Which they did to prevent their people from being taken by the slave traders. Most people are unaware that there was an active trade in Native Americans slaves in the US. Regiments of African Americans soldiers were used to hunt and kill Native Americans. The Native Americans called them Buffalo Soldiers.The friction was created between the African Americans and Native Americans because the settlers feared if the African Americans and Native Americans united they would outnumber the White settlers and would wipe them out in an uprising.The story of Native Americans protecting African Americans slaves is not entirely true. Historically like today, Native American society did not have the "concept of difference" based on race or skin color. Difference based on skin color is a Euro concept. Tribes often extended tribal hospitality to both African American and White people who chose to reside with the tribe.Secondly the story that Native Americans protected runaway slaves and intermarried was promoted by African Americans to explain why some didn't look fully African American. It was seen as somewhat better to be part Native American than to be part White.That's why today some African Americans believe they have Native American blood, even though DNA has proven only about 2.9% African Americans actually have Native American blood..4 months ago (10-09-2011)

Why did Europeans see Africans as a better a source of labor than Native Americans?

Because Africans were strangers to the Americans, so they wouldn't have allies or places to hide. Additionally, the Native Americans had much weaker immune systems than Africans because Africans had developed around the same livestock that Europeans had. This made the Africans more disease resistant. Africans were also able to put up with muich more abuse, on average, than Native Americans without fainting or dying.

What did the native Americans give to us?

The native Americans gave the Europeans everything they had, their land, their culture, their livelihood, and their very lives. Well, they didn't exactly give it, the Europeans took what they wanted and destroyed what they didn't value. The Europeans took the land and its resources for their own purposes. The native Americans can still give us many things to make our modern lives better. The natives know how to live in harmony with nature without using it up; they know how to use nature to obtain what they need and leave the rest for those who follow. It's time we accepted this gift from the Native people.
