men to west european women)
- Spaniards would marry and produce children with amerindian nobility in order to produce
pacification from the ruled or those being encroached upon.
- Africans used as slaves in the home were called domestics”
- Those born of mixed race often moved away from work and plantation and worked rather as
wage labourers or artisans. They lived a hostile existence which necessitated an agressive
ethos for survival. they would also become vagrants in large numbers where it is believed the
negative stereotypes for mixed race people being drunkers and beggars as a whole were likely
bred.
- the collective culture of the amerindian played against them as skilled labour was needed in
the agricultural sector of the new world economy. this void would be filled eventually by the
mixed race peoples who had less of a collectivist culture. this led to their inclusion into the
white mans world as the authors have it.
- population reached stabilization in the first half of the 1700s for the first time since the
epidemics of disease that arose from contact.
- iberian colonial society was not a replica of iberian society
