Look into some of thinking of the Spanish Court regarding how to treat natives. One result is The 'El Requiremento': This document gave permission and absolution to the soldiers of the time to kill the 'enemy' with a clear conscience. Their behavior towards the indigenous people wasn't any better than the English.  
 
El Requerimiento, meaning "the requirement, or demand," was drafted in 1513 by Juan López de Palacios Rubios, a member of the Council of Castile, which advised King Ferdinand. The document was designed to be read in Spanish by Spanish explorers to American Indians, introducing them to Christian doctrine. Indians were not compelled to convert, but if they did not, they were immediately subject to Spanish invasion. The following English translation is published by Wikipedia.
 

 

 

Always there are the powerful to hold sway over the natives. Doesn't matter where. It's the same kind of pyramid power displayed in all ages. Whether by crook or benign republic there are always those at the top who control the weather.  Any man who holds power and authority must consider the responsibility inherent. I think Machiavelli described it best with his Discourses on Livy and especially in the Prince. History is filled with this behavior. History teaches us what happens to men and women who hold these great positions and their effects/affects in all their spheres of influence. 
 
All the failures and success', the reasons why, traditions and beliefs, etc. All this and more are just small details in a much larger canvas.

The Dark Story of Hernando de Soto



This is a short documentary about Hernando de Soto's trials and travails while exploring North America. It does exaggerate Spain's glory in their attitude towards indigenous people. Also, it makes mention of the disease that ran rampant throughout the New World. Personally, I think that was the greatest contributor in conquering the New World. The Spanish paved the way for the English and French to walk right in to a completely different collection of tribes after their numbers diminished up to 90% in 200 years. De Soto was a great contributor towards that.

This documentary is just over 20 minutes long....
