Blog Post #1: What I would like to learn

Throughout my years in school, Latin America is one topic that was not covered much. A few of my history classes may have skimmed the topic, but we never went in depth. This is the main reason why I decided to take this class. First and foremost, I would like to learn about the people who comprise Latin America. I would like to learn about their rich histories and various different Latin American cultures.

Another topic I would like to learn about is the interactions between Native Americans and the Europeans. I have mostly only seen these interactions from the European perspective, so I think it would be interesting to see it from a different point of view. I want to know what life was like for these individuals before the arrival of the Europeans and how much life has changed since their arrival.
