Give a brief general history of Latin America. Before the arrival of European explorers, indigenous peoples such as the Aztec, Incan, and Maya Empires ruled the area. The Spanish and other Europeans arrived in the 15th century, and conquered the indigenous peoples, ruling for the next 500 years. In the 19th century, many Latin American countries fought for and gained independence from Spain and the other nations, and most were independent countries by The next hundred years or so were fraught with civil wars, corruption, revolts, and troubled economies, from which most countries are just beginning to recover. 9. Why is the history and culture of Brazil, Suriname, and the Guianas different from the rest of South America? They were not Spanish colonies like most of the rest of Latin America, but were settled by the Portuguese (Brazil), English, Dutch, and French.
