Subject

Spanish Jesuit priest. Native Americans. Colonial America.

Description

This letter is from Luis de Quirós to Juan Baptista de Segura of the Spanish Catholic Jesuit
Society. It details Luis de Quirós’s experiences with the Native Americans in which he asks for
seeds to trade with Native Americans, and gives a good explanation of how he plans to use those
resources to exploit Natives into converting to Christianity. It shows us an inside look on how the
Spanish Catholics thought industrially about conversion.
