In this video Heimler takes you through Unit 2 Topic 5 of the AP U.S. History curriculum which is set in period 2 (1607-1754).
Here we discuss the interactions between American Indians and the various groups of Europeans who showed up on the shores of the Americas. Reaching back into the previous period, we begin with Spain and their introduction of a caste (casta) system for societal reorganization and a new forced labor system called encomienda.
But the English and French in North America didn't encounter large, urban populations of natives as did the Spain. The English forced natives off the land rather than subjecting them for labor. Still, such policies led to violence in Metacom's War (aka King Philip's War). The French were more interested in trade partnerships and so that arrangement largely dictated how they interacted with the American Indians.
If you have any questions, leave them below and Heimler shall answer forthwithly.
