Popol Vuh / Converting Mexico's Indians To Christianity
[ send me this paper ]
10 pages in length. The Popol Vuh is as critical to the history of the Native Americans as any book of recorded history would be to an entire circle of peoples.

Translated, the words Popol Vuh represent the unification of people in God's name, which to them is a magic word; indeed, it stands for the Book of the Community. It also symbolizes all things good, such as the sun, light and fertility. Yet through this vast connection to its Mexican history, Popol Vuh also speaks of the reasons behind what ultimately lead the Indians of Mexico to find their faith in Christianity. The writer discusses the relevance of the Popol Vuh as it relates to the conversion of Mexico's Native Americans to Christianity. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

The Trail Of Tears
[ send me this paper ]
7 pages in length. Often referred to as the American Holocaust, the Trail of Tears represents a battle between the European settlers and the Cherokee Indians that ultimately brought down the Cherokee Nation.
