Christopher Columbus

Explorer and Colonizer of the New World

Spotlight on Explorers and Colonization

The true legacy of Christopher Columbus is much more complex than the familiar myth of him as the celebrated founder of the New World. On his voyages to islands in the Caribbean, he killed and enslaved many native people and was even arrested in Spain for his tyrannical governance of the lands he still believed to be the Indies. This resource takes a critical look at Columbus?s actions, their implications for colonization and cross-cultural exchange, and their lasting impact on today?s world.
