Conquistadors (2000): S01E04 – All the World is Human


Conquistadors (2000) is a BBC documentary retelling of the story of the Spanish expeditions of conquest of the Americas.


Conquistador Alvar Nunez de Cabeza de Vaca finds that “All the World Is Human” (and ceases being a conquistador) as he crosses North America without an army between 1528 and 1536. Historian Michael Wood traces that journey, from Florida to Mexico’s west coast, in which he encountered natives continually and lived with them frequently. Some treated him well, some didn’t. “He learned what it was to be a native person,” says Wood. “And they taught him what it was to be human.”
