This is about the policies or changes that the Spaniards imposed in the country.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1. This policy resettled the Indios into pueblos for better monitoring by the Spaniards.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "reduccion" or "Reduccion". This policy refers to the process of resettling the Indios (indigenous people) into pueblos (towns) for better monitoring by the Spaniards. This was done as part of the Spanish colonial strategy to control and assimilate the indigenous population. By concentrating them in specific areas, the Spaniards could more easily oversee and influence their activities, ensuring compliance with Spanish laws and customs.

These terms refer to the historical trade route and system of trade between the Philippines and Mexico during the Spanish colonial period. It involved the use of large sailing ships called galleons to transport goods, primarily silver from Mexico and luxury goods from the Philippines. The galleon trade played a significant role in connecting the economies of these two regions and facilitating the exchange of goods and cultural influences.

    Explanation
    The term "bandala" refers to a system in which farmers were compelled to sell their harvest or produce to the Spanish government. This suggests that the Spanish government had control over the agricultural industry and could dictate the terms of trade. The use of the term "bandala" implies a coercive or oppressive relationship between the government and the farmers, where the farmers had little choice but to comply with the government's demands.

    7. The form of government during the Spanish period that resembles our present form of government.

    Explanation
    During the Spanish period, the form of government was centralized, meaning that power and decision-making were concentrated in the hands of a central authority. This is similar to our present form of government, where a central government has the authority to make laws and govern the entire country. In both cases, the central government has the power to enforce laws, collect taxes, and make decisions that affect the entire nation. This centralized form of government allows for uniformity and consistency in governance, ensuring that laws and policies are implemented effectively throughout the country.

    8. This was also called a residence tax imposed on the Indios during the Spanish period.

    Explanation
    During the Spanish period, the Indios were required to pay a tax known as cedula, which was also referred to as a residence tax. This tax was imposed on the indigenous population and served as a means of control and exploitation by the Spanish colonial government. The cedula was a form of identification that was issued to the Indios upon payment of the tax, and failure to possess a valid cedula could result in penalties or even imprisonment. This tax played a significant role in the economic and social oppression of the Indios during the Spanish colonial rule.

    Explanation
    A tradition that celebrates the feast day of saints is called a fiesta or fiestas. It is a festive celebration that honors and commemorates the saints in the Catholic calendar. Fiestas often involve religious processions, feasting, music, dancing, and other cultural activities. The term "fiesta" is commonly used in Spanish-speaking countries and communities to refer to these celebrations.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    10. The social class that was heavily discriminated during the Spanish period.

    Explanation
    During the Spanish period, the social class that faced heavy discrimination was the sangley or sangleys. The sangley were Chinese migrants who settled in the Philippines and engaged in trade and commerce. They were subjected to various forms of discrimination, including restrictions on their economic activities, social exclusion, and cultural marginalization. The Spanish colonial authorities viewed them as a threat to their economic control and sought to limit their influence and power. This discrimination against the sangley was a result of the Spanish colonial policy of promoting Spanish dominance and suppressing other ethnic groups in the Philippines.
