We got the gold and silver by making natives mine it out of the Earth. We tried to but couldn’t find new exotic spices for the king and queen of Spain. Finally we took land by force, we decided to take this land because The Treaty of Tordesillas said this was our land to take.

The Spanish Conquistadors built new civilizations in many ways.One way the we built new civilizations is, they encouraged Spanish citizens to move to the new world. The second way the we built new civilizations is, they set up land & labor arrangements up called Encomiendas. Encomiendas a system in which settlers received a plot of land and native servants to help around the plot of land. The last way the we built new civilizations is,by telling settlers that the more important they are the more workers and land they get.These are just a few of the ways we built new civilizations.
