The puritans (Christians who broke away from the church of

England) wanted a purer simpler religion so they colonized in North

America. They then learned how to grow crops and took over the land

leaving a small amount for the Native Americans. They did this

because they wanted more Europeans living in North America.

Europeans soon discovered gold which made more Europeans come to

the land, this pushed the native Americans off the land.
