Deveau762's picture

European societies were effected positively and negatively, it was effected positively by the aboriginal technologies like food preservation, winter survival skills and transportation, it was effected negatively by the aboriginals introducing smoking to the euorpean culture which became a habit of many europenans, it was also effected negatively because their economic wealth was turned upside down from the wealth that came into its colonies. Aboriginal societies changed positively and negatively, it changed positively because of guns, kettles, new foods and knives but changed negatively because the Europeans brought diseases over and also effected them negatively by their resources being depleted and having them be unable to maintain their traditional economies. introduction to alcohol and the addictions of it also effected them negatively.
