This documentary explores the spiritual and psychological powers of the masks used by Northwest Coast native peoples. Despite these positive trends, GDP growth dropped to 4.4% in 2013 and 2.9% in 2014. ROBERTSON Associated Press Judges in Georgia and North Carolina on Friday ordered state election officials to extend voter-registration deadlines in some counties due to... Even then, their welcome was initially good, although with Soto in charge, a reconnaissance foray raped an entire nunnery of several hundred virgins and then slaughtered the local populace when they resisted it. [18] � The surprise attack, capture, ransoming, and murder of the Incan emperor made even Charles V uneasy, as his men did that to a sovereign, which challenged the Divine Right of Kings doctrine.� The Spanish accounts of Cuzco's subsequent sack give some hint of what their capital city was like, and along with Tenochtitl�n, they were the New World’s two most spectacular cities, and perhaps the world’s. [19] � When the Soto's entrada invaded Florida in 1539 and marauded through today’s Southeast USA for three years, it may have been history’s most destructive expedition; it laid waste to the entire region, mainly from the diseases they left behind.� One native empire had already been devastated by European epidemics when Soto passed through, so even then, Soto intruded upon a far from unsullied land, but the chroniclers of that expedition, as bent as they were for plunder, described intriguing peoples, ones who seemed largely at peace with their neighbors, although warfare was not unknown and apparently increased as populations became more dense.� Soto was about the first and last European to see the Mississippian culture, which had flourished for several centuries before becoming extinct from European invasion and disease.� Some mounds are several thousand years old.� The Mississippian period began declining a century before Soto showed up.� Why they declined is one of archeology’s current mysteries, and there are educated guesses about what it was like then.� It is not unreasonable to wonder if European epidemics washed through the Mississippian culture as early as the 1518 smallpox epidemic that raged through Mesoamerica and carried off millions of people, or even the unrecorded slavers that hit the Florida coastline before Ponce de Le�n’s entrada of 1513.� When Francisco V�zquez de Coronado's expedition invaded today’s American Southwest in 1540, looking for cites gilt in gold, the natives had already been visited by Spanish slaving expeditions, so they resisted Coronado’s invasion, which was the first Spanish entrada that tried treating the natives well.� It ended up much as the other Spanish invasions did, however. [20] � Although openly predatory, the Coronado entrada described gentle peoples, with even rival tribes relatively peacefully, including those who hunted bison on the plains.

[318] Numerous articles appeared in the USA's media in January 1999 regarding the spying of the "weapons inspectors" (Washington Post, January 6th, 8th and 9th; New York Times, January 8th; Reuters, January 8th; The Washington Post January 6th article by Barton Gellman was the most informative and shocking of them all).

[324] Smi th wrote regarding imperial powers willingly giving up any part of their domains: "No nation ever voluntarily gave up the dominion of any province, how troublesome soever it might be to govern it, and how small soever the revenue which it afforded might be in proportion to the expence which it occasioned.� Such sacrifices, though they might frequently be agreeable to the interest, are always mortifying to the pride of every nation, and what is perhaps of still greater consequence, they are always contrary to the private interest of the governing part of it, who would thereby be deprived of the disposal of many places of trust and profit, of many opportunities of acquiring wealth and distinction, which the possession of the most turbulent, and, to the great body of the people, the most unprofitable province seldom fails to afford."� See Smith, The Wealth of Nations, Book IV, Ch.
