Issues Relevant to Today

How are Native Americans viewed?

This assumes a non-Native identity in the reader, it would seem. Are there more general ways to describe subjectivity/objectivity and colonial issues that might be at play today in the world?

Democracy - say more, how is "democracy" at issue today and how does it connect with this event?

How do we share finite resources with groups with competing interests, e.g. water?

Key Concepts/Terms

Puritans

believed church of England must be purged of its excesses and abuses.

Are here Puritans today? What happened to them?

Merchant Adventurers

viewed colonization of America as an investment and a way to plant their religion.  Thomas Weston was their representative.

Mayflower Compact

government agreement established by Pilgrims before reaching shore that said majority would rule.

Colonialism

Where does this fit with colonialism of other lands/people? How was this a similar/different story from the ways in which other places were colonized? What are the key characteristics of colonialism?
