Complete the definitions for hacienda and encomienda on your student handout. Hacienda = a land grant, or an estate, given to a conquistador by the king that might include a plantation, mines, or factories. Encomienda = a grant from the king giving control

of the lives of the people on the hacienda to a conquistador. The encomienda system is what provides the labor for the hacienda. The Hacienda The hacienda was the Spanish equivalent of a plantation. A hacienda was a large land grant given to a conquistador by the king. The land may also include other means of producing wealthi.e.mines, cattle ranching, and factories. The head of a hacienda was called the patrn. Peasants, or peones, worked land that belonged to the patrn. The campesinos worked small holdings, and owed a portion to the patrn.

Brainstorming Questions for your story. The Encomienda In the encomienda, the Spanish crown

granted a person a specified number of natives for whom they were to take responsibility. It was the responsibility of the person granted the encomienda to compensate their subjects, protect them, educate them in the Christian faith and make sure the people could live off the land. Spain wanted to reduce any chance of overthrow by rebellious groups. In return they could extract tribute from the natives in the form of labor, gold, or other products. In practice, the difference between encomienda and slavery could be minimal. Many natives were forced to do hard labor
