Best Answer

No. The Spanish saw themselves as superior to Native Americans they met. They had two goals. One was to convert them to the Catholic Church ( priests were with them to do just that) and to steal any gold or treasure they may have. As a byproduct they also used them as slaves in mines.

Who was pizzaro?

Francisco Pizzaro was a Spanish conquistador. Raised in Spain, he was poor. When he heard of Cortes's success in conquering the Aztecs, an older Francisco Pizzaro went and conquered the Incan empire, which is now modern day Peru. He became very rich. He captured the Incan ruler, Atahualpa and demanded ransom for him. The Incans paid it. Pizzaro had superior weapons and the Inca were weakened bu European diseases. Thus, letting Pizzaro conquer them. Later, Pizarro was killed by a rival Spanish faction a few years later after he established the city of Lima.

How Native American culture defended themselves?

I guess you are asking about protection in warfare. A type of armour was used by some tribes; some even developed a type of helmet and many carried shields. The armour was made of wooden slats tied together with sinew - this was used by some of the early eastern woodlands warriors such as the Huron. One illustration of a Huron warrior shows him covered from neck to knee front and back by two long sections of this type of armour. On the north-west coast wooden helmets were worn by some warriors, carved into tribal, clan or family animal totems. Shields appear to have been rarely used by the eastern woodland tribes, but they were a regular feature of warriors in the interior, almost always circular in shape and cut from the thickest part of a bull buffalo's hide. A thinner painted hide cover with protective designs would often be used as a covering - or sometimes the shield itself was painted and the plain cover was only removed just before going into battle. Northern Plains shields used by the Plains Cree, Blackfoot and their neighbours were, before horses became widely available, made very large and circular. Warriors on foot formed two battle lines at a distance from each other, kneeling behind these shields and shooting arrows at each other - very few casualties resulted. After horses became plentiful shields reduced in size to around 18 to 26 inches across, always with a long strap attached to sling over one shoulder. Some Plains warriors wore thick hide shirts into battle. The Crows sometimes used such an item, but strangely cut fairly short so it did not reach the waist. West Coast warriors sometimes wore shirts of thick hide, tree bark or wood as a kind of armour to ward off enemy arrows. See links below for images:

Greed was not a major factor in the development of the Aztec and Inca civilizations. the greed mainly manifested when the Spanish and Portuguese explorers found out the natives had vast gold and silver resources. Much of the natives' incentives were connected to the worship of their gods.
