Not Spanish, Not Nahuatl: A Comprehensive Study of the Varied Perspectives of the Conquest of Mexico and Hispaniola
MetadataShow full item record
In essence, the problem with history is that it is often told by those who win battles, win land, gain riches and status, leaving those who are subjugated to dwell in the shadows of history. This study seeks to write a collaborative piece, my work paired with that of many different eyewitnesses, in order to uncover what really happened in the conquest of Mexico and Hispaniola (modern Haiti and Dominican Republic). In providing a plethora of different perspectives of the conquest, the truth will become illuminated. In fact, this study began as a series of questions, and will hopefully leave the readers inquisitive so that they may then search out the truth for themselves rather than having it spoon-fed to them on the golden flatware of kings or through the pens of the wealthy.
