Democracy in Early America: Servitude and the Treatment of Native Americans and Africans prior to 1740. How did and Agriculture Opportunities based Potential Livelihoods: explorers and later the colonists who came to the New World for "Gold, Glory and/or God" justify their treatment of Native Americans, African slaves, and indentured servants? Were there discrepancies between agreed-upon political / Communities • v Imagined and the treatment of these minority groups? The nations that explored and colonized North and South America during the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries used a variety of approaches for subjugating Native Americans, African slaves, and indentured servants. Once Jamestown was settled in 1607, democratic policies were incorporated into colonial governments, but at the same time, slaves were being imported to work the settlement’s tobacco fields. Historians, interpreting primary source documents, have come up with very different conclusions about the treatment of the above groups. Because of labor shortages in English colonies like Virginia, slaves and indentured servants filled an immediate economic need for landowners. Slavery had become rooted in American society in the closing decades of the seventeenth century. The number of slaves grew rapidly, from only a few thousand in 1670 to tens of thousands in the early eighteenth century. The goal of this lesson is for the students to explore the contradictions and complexities regarding behavior, desires, and democratic ideals of this time period.
