Best Answer

The Spanish didn't defeat any native Americans. The Spanish had defeated the Aztecs by forming a revolution with the Aztec citizens. This was successful because the Aztec government was cruel. In that way they nearly got five hundred thousand Aztec citizens to fight for them.

The native Americans that the Spaniards encountered were "beaten" and by the first answer, it says as much. With a superior military force including guns & horses, the Spanish basically overwhelmed the native populations they encountered in the New World.

Way back in the late 1400's when Columbus mistakingly sailed to Central America(thinking it was Asia), he had sailed with the spanish from Spain and when they got to land and native Americans who were living there, they mistreated and enslaved them. Since the Spanish were ahead of them in society, had guns, more trained soldiers, and brought European dieases with them, the native Americans were too weakened to fight and defend themselves and their land. Millions of them died.

Columbus called them Indians because he thought he was in the indies islands off the coast of East Asia.

With diseases which Europeans brought unintentionally with them and Native Americans didn't have any resistance to them.

More technologically advances weaponry, gunpowder using handguns, and cannons.

Metals, like iron, which was unknown to the Native Americans, armor made out of iron and steel.

Horses, war dogs, animals that native Americans haven't seen before Europeans came.

And with betrayal, allying with many weak Native American tribes to defeat the strong empires of South America, and then defeating their previous allies too.
