They do the laundry in the river and say that the person who is not soaked cannot wash well.
They make ponchos, rugs, sashes, and sundries, and especially decorated leather cases, which the men sell for 8 reales each, because the hides have no outlet due to the distance to the port.
The principal men of the city wear very expensive clothes, but this is not the case for the women, who are an exception in both Americas and even in the entire world, because they dress decorously in clothing of little cost.
The customs of their ancestors are very important to them.

Commoners were the hardest hit.
Forced labor and the loss of traditional land rights were common.
European domination dramatically changed the indigenous world by breaking the connections between peoples and places and transforming religious life, marriage practices, diet and material culture.
The survivors of these terrible shocks learned to adapt to the new colonial environment by embracing some elements of the dominant colonial culture.
They learned how to use colonial courts to protect community lands or resist the abuses of corrupt officials.
More than four hundred slaves were involved in the conquests of the two countries.
Many people were able to gain their freedom in the conquest era.
Juan Valiente escaped from his master in Mexico and was involved in Francisco Pizarro's conquest of the Inca Empire.
He was one of the most prominent early settlers.
The cul tural character of the black population of colonial Latin America was altered dramatically with the opening of a slave trade with Africa.
African slaves arrived in the colonies with different languages and beliefs than the Afro-Iberians who spoke Spanish or Portuguese.
European settlers saw the differences as signs of superiority and used them to justify discrimination.
A large percentage of slaves imported in the 16th century came from West Central Africa, where they were exposed to elements of the Iberian culture.
African influence on the emerging colonial cultures of Latin America can be traced back to the common cultural elements.
This is an example of a colonial Spanish American painting.
African traditions were mixed with European language and beliefs to create local cultures.
Slave resistance included sabotage, malingering, running away, and rebellion.
Although there were many slave rebellions, colonial authorities were always in control.
Runaway slaves were sometimes able to defend themselves for years.
Palmares is in Brazil.
Slaves were skilled artisans, musicians, servants, artists, cowboys, and even soldiers.
The majority of them worked in agriculture.
Slaves on sugar plantations in Brazil and the Caribbean were subjected to brutal punishments and backbreaking labor.
Because planters preferred to buy male slaves, there was always a gender imbalance on plantations, making marriage and family patterns difficult in both Africa and Europe.
The native populations of Brazil and Spanish America were smaller than those of Europe.
It depended on the African slave as a source of labor earlier than any other American colony.
Africans and their American-born descendants were the largest racial group in Brazil by the early 17th century.
The Brazilian colonial society was more influenced by African culture than by Amerindian culture.
The granting of freedom to individual slaves was provided for by both Spanish and Portuguese law, as well as the protection of slaves from the worst physical abuse.
The term saved money and gave them their own freedom.
The capacity of individual slaves and slave families to earn income was more important than the generosity of slave owners when it came to manu by Spanish authorities to mission.
Household servants were the most likely beneficiaries of the freed slaves.
The women were slaves.
Less formal relationships were common between Amerindian women and European men.
This rapidly expanding group came to Spanish and Portuguese and dominated urban artisan trades and small-scale colonies to describe some agriculture and ranching.
Many members of the elite were mestizos, some of which were mixed African and proudly asserting their descent from the Amerindian elite.
The European descent is a result of the African slave trade.
In Latin America, colonial governments were created to rule distant colonies.
The American colonies of Spain and Portugal produced a lot of silver, gold, and sugar.

Private companies and individual proprietors played a larger role in the development of English and French colonies.
England's attempt to gain a foothold in the Americas in the late 16th century failed, but it succeeded in establishing colonies in the 17th century.
Private capital was used to finance settlement and the English hoped the colonies would become sources of high-value products such as silver, citrus, and wine.
The English experience in colonizing Ireland influenced these efforts.
Irish land was offered for sale to English investors after it was cleared of natives.
More than 150,000 English and Scottish immigrants were sent to Ireland by investors by 1650.
Ireland attracted six times as many people as New England in the early 17th century.
The Virginia Company took up the challenge of colonizing Virginia and in 1606 London investors organized.
The settlers disembarked at the island 30 miles up the James River.
The additional settlers arrived in 1609.
Almost 80% of the settlers died in the first fifteen years from disease or Amerindian attacks, and the location was a swampy and unhealthy place where investors and settlers hoped for immediate profits.
There was no mineral wealth, no passage to Asia, and no native population.
The Virginia Company was dissolved by the English crown because of mismanagement.
After being freed from the company's commitment to the original location, colonists pushed deeper into the interior and developed a sustainable economy based on furs, timber, and tobacco.
New immigrants were attracted to the profits from tobacco.
The settlers spread out, developing plantations and farms.
A migrant to British colonies Virginia's dispersed population contrasted with the greater urbanization of Spanish and Por in the Americas who paid for tuguese America, where large and powerful cities and networks of secondary towns flourished.
Forced labor of Amerindians for four to seven years was the norm in Latin America from the beginning.
Millions of Africans were forced to migrate to Spain and Portugal as a result of the African slave trade.
A young man or woman unable to pay for transportation to the New World accepted an indenture that bound him or her to a term ranging from four to seven years of labor in return for passage and, at the end of the contract, a small parcel of land, some tools.
In the 17th century, fifteen hundred indentured servants, mostly male, arrived each year.
During the initial period of high mortality rates, planters were more likely to purchase indentured servants than African slaves.
As life expectancy improved, planters began to purchase more slaves because they believed they would earn more profits from slaves owned for life than from indentured servants bound for short periods of time.
The slave population in Virginia grew from 100,000 in 1660 to 120,000 in 1756.
The English colonies of North America were left out of the form of democratic representation that was started in colonial Virginia.
Along with the dramatic increase in the colony's slave population, the expansion of colonial liberties and political rights occurred.
The political character of England's southern colonies was shaped by the evolution of American freedom and American slavery.
The fur trade was the main source of profits for the English settlement of the Carolinas.
French trading networks based in New Orleans and Mobile have pushed English fur traders into the interior.
Over 100,000 deerskins were provided annually to this profitable commerce, but at a high environmental and cultural cost.
The natural balance of animals and plants in southern forests was disrupted by Amerindian peoples.
The Amerindian culture was altered by the profits of the fur trade.
European products, including firearms, metal tools, textiles, and alcohol, profoundly altered the Amerindian life.
Indigous peoples were weakened by epidemics, alcoholism, and a rising tide of ethnic conflicts due to competition for hunting grounds.
Many captured Amerindians were sold as slaves to local colonies, who used them as agricultural workers or exported to the sugar plantations of the Caribbean.
The Amerindians launched attacks on English settlements in the early 1700s because they were dissatisfied with the terms of trade imposed by fur traders.
The Amerindian land was seized by European settlers after their defeat by the colonial military forces.
Slavery grew slowly in this region.
Charleston and the interior of South Carolina were different.
This colony developed an economy based on plantations and slavery in imitation of the colonies of the Caribbean and Brazil.
In 1729, North and South Carolina became separate colonies.
The prosperous rice and indigo plantations near Charles ton attracted both free and increasing numbers of African slaves.
African slaves were present from the founding of Charleston and were instrumental in introducing rice agriculture along the coastal lowlands.
They were important to the development of indigo plantations at higher altitudes away from the coast.
Many slaves were given responsibilities.
The planter who sent two slaves and their families to a frontier region said that they are capable of the management of a plantation themselves.
The importation of African slaves created a black major ity in South Carolina.
African languages, as well as African religious beliefs and diet, influenced this unique colonial culture.
The common idiom of the Carolina coast is Gullah, a dialect with African and English roots.
The Stono Rebellion was the largest slave uprising in South Carolina.
About a hundred slaves from nearby plantations joined the American colonial societies.
The rebellion shocked slave owners throughout England's southern colonies and led to greater oppression.
In British North America, the most hierarchical society was in South Carolina.
Plant ers were in charge of the economy and political life.
In Charleston, the largest city in the southern colonies, the richest families maintained impressive households.
Small farmers, cattlemen, artisans, merchants, and fur traders held an intermediate but clearly subordinate social position.
The effects of epidemic disease and warfare caused Native peoples to lose ground in colonial society.
In colonial Latin America, there was a large mixed population.
The children of white men and Amerindian women were important players in the fur trade.
The offspring of white men and black women often held positions within the slave work force.
In 1620, approximately one hundred settlers--men, women, and children--established the colony of Plymouth on the coast of Massachusetts.
When the Massachusetts Bay Colony of the Puritans absorbedPlymouth, English Protestant dissenters believed that.
They wanted to be dead before they were born.
They started a membership for people who shared their beliefs.
In 1629, it was subject to increased discrimination in Bay Colony.
They limited Crown efforts to control them by bringing the charter, which spelled out company rights and obligations as well as the direction of company government.
The Bay Colony had more than twenty thousand Puritans by 1642.
Immigration to Massachusetts was different from immigration to the Chesapeake and South Carolina.
The majority of newcomers to Massachusetts arrived with their families.
In 1625, 84 percent of Virginia's white population was male, but Massachusetts had a normal gender balance from the beginning.
It was the healthiest of England's colonies.
There was a rapid increase in population.
The survival of southern or Caribbean colonies depended on a steady flow of English immigrants and slaves to counter high mortality rates.
Massachusetts was less hierarchical than the southern colonies.
The company charter gave rise to political institutions.
The board of directors of the Massachusetts Bay Company drew from the gov ernor and council of magistrates that the settlers elected.
In 1650, disagreements between the council and elected representatives of the towns led to the creation of a lower legislative house that developed procedures and rules similar to the House of Commons in England.
In the colonies of Latin America, there was less political involvement.
Massachusetts was different from the southern colonies.
Cash crops like tobacco or rice could not be developed because of poor soils and harsh climate.
The colonists needed to find a profit-making niche in the growing Atlantic market to pay for imported tools, textiles, and other essentials.
Fur, timber, and fish provided the initial economic foundation, but New England's economic well-being soon depended on providing commercial and shipping services in a dynamic and far- flung commercial arena that included the southern colonies, the Caribbean islands, Africa, and Europe.
In Spanish and Portuguese America, heavily capitalized monopolies dominated international trade.
In New England, individual merchants found smaller but more sustainable profits in diversified trade across the Atlantic.
Market intelligence, flexibility, and streamlined organization were some of the factors that made the colony successful.
The success of this development strategy is shown by the growth of the urban population.
Boston, the capital of Massachusetts Bay Colony, had sixteen thousand inhabitants in 1740, making it the largest city in British North America.
Lacking a profitable agricultural export like tobacco, New England did not develop the extreme social stratification of the southern plantation colonies.
There were slaves and indentured servants present.
New England was ruled by the richest colonists and shared the racial attitudes of the southern colonies, but it was also the colonial society with the most uniformly British and Protestant population in the Americas.

The area from western New gave the Mohawk, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca peoples access to the rich fur trade of Canada.
England was expunge to the Great Lakes when confronted by the English military.
The colony was renamed New York after James, duke of York and later King James II of England.
Located at the mouth of the Hudson River, the city was an essential part of connecting the region's grain farmers to the booming markets of the Caribbean and southern Europe.
The British tried to limit the cost of colonial defense by negotiating land settlements with native peoples, but the growing tide of western migration doomed these agreements.
A fragile peace along the northern frontier was maintained by William Johnson by building strong personal relations with influential leaders of the Mohawk and other members of the Confederacy.
The mixed nature of the frontier is shown in his home in New York, which has a main house and two defensive blockhouses.
The New York Colony had a diverse population that included English, Dutch, German, and Swedish settlers.
Pennsylvania began as a colony and was used as a refuge by the Quakers.
William Penn secured an enormous grant of territory in 1682 because Charles II was indebted to his father.
Penn had sole right to establish a government because he was the proprietor of the land.
Penn lost control of the colony's political life.
Philadelphia overtook Boston to become the largest city in the British colonies by 1700.
Penn's emphasis on negotiation rather than warfare and access to good markets led to rapid economic and demographic growth in the colony.
Pennsylvania and South Carolina were both grain-exporting colonies.
Large numbers of slaves were required for South Carolina's rice plantations.
The majority of the colony's grain crops were produced by free workers in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania's economic expansion occurred without reproducing South Carolina's social order.
Philadelphia had a large population of black slaves and freedmen by the early 18th century.
Many were servants in the homes of wealthy merchants, but the fast-growing economy offered many opportunities in skilled trades as well.
