Why did the spanish introduce encomienda?
Question asked by: jongebong1

Asked on: 16 Jun 2010

Apparently it was to care for and protect the indigenous people.

There is lots of stuff on google about the encomienda system so to find out more I would suggest that you search for it on there and then read some background material this will give you a good understanding about encomienda and what it is and enable you to answer to the questions.
