This presentation identifies geographic regions settled by France, England, and Spain, reasons settlers may have had to come to the New World and the types of financial gain their backers hoped to realize by sending colonists there.  The objects help participants explore evidence of these native cultures early settlers brought with them, and ways these influences remain today.
