Disease and Discrimination

University Press of Florida

John White and a few others brought to Europe the first glimpses of the animals, plants, and people of the New World at the time of initial contact between the two very different worlds. However, the first images of the New World were created within a historical, political, social, and economic context, and they were based on limited information. This chapter explores the period of initial contact between the Old and New Worlds, and the problems of interpreting the past through historic narratives and visual representations.

Keywords:   Native America, New World, John White
