Its all a matter of point of view; To the native people it was totally negative; Columbus's original trip, generated the greatest violation of human rites ever practiced in ci-vil-ization. An Abomination!

Columbus and his crew treated the Arawak's ( natives) like slaves if they did not obey they were tortured and even killed.
Positives were that he discovered so much rich land and inspired many people to explore the world in a different way. he also documented his journey meaning we can can trace his exact rout etc
hope this helps :)
