The social/cultural and economic responses of the British, French, and Spanish to the natives of North America prior to 1750.

This is my AP US History project assignment:

The year 1750. Native American groups from throughout the Western Hemisphere have hired you, a representative of a world renowned "think tank", to create a tri-fold brochure in which you will analyze and "expose" the social/economical and economical responces of the British, French, and Spanish to the natives of North America prior to 1750.

 

I must include

-what the responses where.

-how the responces occurred (include dates of individual events)

-establish a time frame for each of the "conquerring groups" and shows the approximate dates in which responces occurred

-present the groups in chronological order of their contact with the indigenous people

-discribe the geographic area(s) in which each of the responses occured

I Have no idea where to start and the whole project is due tomorrow! Please give me everything you can. I dont even understand the question.

I'd say they each responded by thinking of the way they could best exploit the Native Americans.  Some choice to trade with them, some chose to kill them.  They all were being manipulative and none had the Native Americans interests at heart.

The major responses were different for the French and Spanish than for the British.  The French and Spanish included the natives in their society.  They did this because there weren't that many settlers and they needed the Indians for labor and, in many cases, for wives.  By contrast, the British sent lots of settlers over.  They didn't need the Indians and so they were much more confrontational with them.  They drove them off land that they (the colonists) wanted and they killed them.
